Since spring is already here and flowers are now blooming I thought it would be a good idea to have a gardening thread in here.


What's your favorite plant/flower?
Are you currently growing something?
Got any cool tips and tricks you want to share?
Or maybe you are looking for advice?
Got any cool plants you want to share?

This picture is from an Amaryllis I got a couple of years ago, it started blooming yesterday

If there seems to be some interest in this thread I might post some of my other plants
 
I like any plants, as long as they are in a garden with a low fence ;)

I'm kind of a newbie gardener. I got into it last year when I grew some strawberries from seeds. I didn't expect them to even sprout, but they did it.

Plants still look healthy this year. Hopefully this is the year that they start producing fruit.

Don't freak out if the strawberries look green, that's kind of normal during the first year of fruit production, if this happens try using some nitrogen fertilizer and then switch to ammonium nitrate during August.
If you don't want to use chemical fertilizers you could use humus but it won't be as effective. :)

Oh. Good to know. Thanks for the tip.

I think Blaire would love the everliving shit out of this thread to be honest. She loves her garden a lot.

*Don't freak out, perfectly legal in Canada (up to four plants)*

Other then that I have Perennials in the yard that pop up every year, have no idea what species..
Will have to post a pic in a week or two, they're the first to pop up before anything else.

Hope you don't grow it indoors, that plant is stanky as hell

I usually grow squash. I grew Seminole Pumpkin last year which really isn't supposed to grow that well this far north but I actually got about a dozen of them off one plant.

I have a friend at my college who's got a small hemp garden himself. He keeps them in his dorm with UV lights. To no surprise he's majoring in Botany, and tells us he only grows them for personal research.

ah classy thread.

Snow is still piling up the ground here in the northeast, so maybe early April Ill begin to condition my larger pots with peat and fertilizer.
This year is going to be another massive harvest of jumbo tomatoes. I tried some "hot" peppers last year, but they were mislabeled. ended up being just a southern bell pepper.
small pots of basil will go in with the tomatoes, giving off a natural pest control. I usually have my eye on my crops daily so Im not too worried about insects.
White sage freaking flourishes anywhere I plant it, and I use it to burn when Im outside enjoying a cold one.
my flowers are all perennials, Ill see those babies soon. gotta remind myself it hit em with root-blast.

I live in Massachusetts and weed is legal. though it isnt technically legal to grow outdoors, the law never stopped me from growing other things.
Ive done a couple yields over a couple summers with a neighbor, so I plan on going easy with 4 or 5 feminized hybrids.
I dont really partake in the marinara so Ill just give my yield to my friends.

That's so cool!

Yeah I find the plant itself is beautiful, even if I'm not successful I'll get a cool looking hemp plant outta the deal:cool:

He says research is pointless if he can't enjoy the learning experience. XD

Planted some Egyptian Cucumber seedlings around two weeks ago. This is what I have so far

Supposedly you can eat the cucumbers but I don't want them for that, if you let them get fully ripe they get super fibrous and you can make rags/sponges out of then like in this pic

For anyone interested, the soil is a mix of peat moss, perlite, tabaco powder, humus and osmocote

Yup, it's called Luffa. It's great for your skin!

I have a green thumb, pretty much anything I touch grows really well. I just hate gardening :'D

Are we moomin, or are we dancer?
My imaginary garden I can't afford (because I can't buy a house yet) would have cherry trees, lilacs and wisteria.

I think I'll need to be about 60 before I can imagine affording any of that though. :[
