My Hydrangea

They make such a statement in a garden , I love them because of the big flower . They are great to cut and place in any room in your house.

You can easily make more plants from clippings .

You can change their color just by placing a nail( from your tool box  not your finger nail ! LOL) near the base of the plant .  The color you get depends on your soils PH .

This is a picture of our lemon tree in Florida .

This variety blooms all year round . Some of the lemons grow to a size of a grapefruit ! In order to get a good yield its important to fertilize every 3 to 4 months and to water generously and make sure the water doesn`t puddle around the plant for long  ...good drainage is the key to a good citrus plant .

When transplanting from the container to the ground its important that you never plant them lower than their original container and when watering it should be right to the roots and not use a sprinkler

My wisteria in full bloom

 I love Wisteria , so vibrant & fragrant  . Today I was surprised to read that it comes from the pea family . They love to climb on wires best but on a trellis will work nicely to . I prefer cutting them down and growing them in a tree form , It requires a bit more work to trim them more often, but the reward is worth it . 

Wisteria`s  do not transplant well at all , The few times I have transplanted them it took 3 years to look healthy again , I kept thinking they were going to die on me,  but frequent watering  and constantly  talking to them finally perked them up again. its ashame that they do not bloom for very long .
