  • Cool nights initiate bloom for holiday cacti

    It looks like we are in a cool weather pattern which got me thinking about some of my orchids and holiday cacti.  
    When attempting to grow tropical plants we are met with the challenge of mimicking their native habitat which is difficult inside our homes; we can allow Mother Nature to take care of some of this, outside, for now.  
    Move some of your orchids, holiday cacti and clivia outdoors for the remainder of the season because we can initiate bud set through managing day length and nighttime temperatures.

  • Favorite fall perennials

    There are some perennials that I can’t live without because of their fabulous late-summer and fall performance.  
    Plant them in your garden now because you will overlook them at garden centers come spring.
    My mixed perennial beds look the best this time of the year (barring any unpleasant summer drought; and please ignore the weeds!)  The black-eyed Susan’s, Russian sage and various species of Aster, Salvia and Nepeta are prolific but they are only mediocre anchor plants compared to some of the other species that come on this time of the year.
