PRACTICAL ADVICE FOR HORTICULTURE

Plant Labels:

SAVE THE PLANT IDENTIFICATION LABELS! 

 

Keep a written file of the plants that are bought with identification, even date that it was bought. Labels usually have height of plant, width, exposure -sun, semi-shade, shade, water requirements, where it was purchased.

 

When sowing seeds, label the seeds and when seeds were planted.

Forcing Branches:

“Forcing” flowering branches is the term used for bringing plants indoors to bloom. The term may be a tad too strong for cut branches. Forcing flowering branches requires more of a gentle encouragement than a strong arm.
