It's very important to provide support so here the p's are carefully tied to wood stakes using natural, biodegradable garden twine. My p patch isn't large and there seems to be only one p per pot. (Just when I thought that I wouldn't have a pot to p in if I kept spending money on plants...) I've used lava rock mulch on one and pebble mulch on the other. For those of you who are musically inclined, you'll think that the greenhouse is a quiet place (pianissimo.)
Below are some of the recent blooms in my garden. I brought them out just for the recent tour. These mostly live at the glass shop as samples for the class I teach in how to make them.
Except for this one which has been in my garden for ages, usually covered with foliage because I use it as a plant stake.
This year's Danger Gardenette is a bit different from previous years as plants have grown and some decided to stay in the greenhouse or people house for the summer. The agave in the middle had a serious problem with scale this winter. I didn't know what was wrong until the infestation was extensive. Because this is one of the very first agaves that I got (4" pot many years ago) and it had grown to be quite stunning, I didn't want to throw it away. The systemic insecticide application seems to have taken care of the problem and hopefully spending the summer outside will help the plant to regain it's former glory.
How's that for a random post?
