This stunning Camellia is a sport from the extremely popular red Yuletide Camellia. Large, wonderfully fragrant, deep pink blooms are centered with bright yellow stamens - making a beautiful addition to the cool season garden. Float blossoms in a bowl to enjoy the fragrance indoors. An excellent choice for a colorful hedge, espalier, or border shrub.

The signs that fall are coming are showing up daily. Soon our trailing petunias will need to be pulled and the pumpkins are out at the nursery.  We have created a fall container section to help create that special piece.

Here by popular demand. One of the planters built in todays seminaar, lovely mixed planter accented by violas and variegated osmanthus with blue cypress as a center focus.

As the investigation into the whereabouts of the missing gnomes continues, we decided to see why Smokie hadn't chased away any wrongdoers. We found her loafing on the Woollypocket living wall planters. Not only do they make beautiful vertical gardens, they are comfy too.

Heidi’s Hints
Heidi loves roses!  She’s been enjoying the first wave of flowering.  To get more flowers, Heidi recommends cutting back the old bloom stems to just above an outward facing leaf with 5 leaflets.*  We call this deadheading and it’s great to do on all your flowering plants and perennials that rebloom again.  While you’re out deadheading, apply another application of fertilizer.  Heidi likes Espoma Rose-tone, which contains alfalfa meal, a rose favorite.  Roses like 2-3 feedings a season, the first time when just after they leaf out and  the last application no later than the end of July.  Heidi says it’s a good time to treat for black spot, rust and aphids.  Rose Rx 3 in 1 by Bonide is a safe way to treat all these pests.  Do you have aphids and no disease?  Captain Jack’s Deadbug Brew, containing spinosad (a by-product of rum distilling) is a safe, effective way to kill those aphids. Speaking of rum, Heidi’s work is done and she’s going to relax with a Pina Colada.  
*Some rose leaves only have 3 leaflets.  You get best rebloom when you prune right above a leaf with 5 leaflets.
