The rose. What flower has inspired more poetry or more romance,? There is good reason why roses are everybody’s favorite flower. From the delicate little Cecile Brunner with it’s picture perfect pale pink buds, to the magnificence of a the mighty yellow and peach blooms of a Peace rose in full bloom or the blowsy indulgence of a Pierre de Ronsard as it trails over arbours and up trellis, there is a rose for every garden, in every colour and style.

Now that Spring is in the air and the soil in our garden is warming up, so the roots of our favourite plants are waking up from a long sleep. It’s time to don the gardening gloves, grab the secateurs, and make sure we give our roses the best possible chance for healthy growth and a long-lasting bloom of flowers in the summer and autumn months ahead.

While rose growers living in warmer climates generally prune over winter; for those people living in a cold climate, April is ideal the time to prune. Wait until the leaf buds begin to swell. For cold climate dwellers, this is also the time to clean up around the base of the bush, removing any old leaves or mulch that was used to protect the bush over winter.

The best time to feed your roses is at pruning time, so for those in cold climates this will be in early spring. Use a good quality all-purpose rose food. For those in warm climates, who pruned and fed their roses over winter, hold off on applying new fertilizer just now. This should be done in early summer.

In early spring it’s important to look out for aphids on new growth. If these tiny green insects appear, clustering on the new growth, use insect spray such as Pyrethrum or Confidor to deter them.

When buds start to appear on your roses, you can apply a foliar feed to encourage them. Try spraying them with Peter’s Multi Purpose Fertilizer or Miracle Gro Multipurpose Fertilizer. If you find any evidence of Black Spot on the leaves of your roses, use a fungicide spray to tackle the problem head on.

As the weather warms up, it pays to mulch well around the base of the plant with a pea straw or lucerne hay. As these mulches break down they add much needed nutrients to the soil, as well as protecting the roots from drying out. You will enjoy a magnificent flush of blooms by mid spring, but keep an eye out for black spot!

As your roses bloom and grow in the warmer weather, a constant deadheading will ensure a steady display of picture perfect roses well into summer and autumn. Now is the time to get out and visit gardens and see other roses in their full glory – a perfect opportunity to make note of all the roses you want to plant in your own garden for next year! Happy gardening!

Gardening With Raised Beds

Author: RobertCorter

At a time when mobile home parks and apartment complexes are steadily growing, it is difficult to find a 50 feet by 20 feet piece of land to set up an ideal farm or field. Raised bed gardening is a welcome option. Known by various names, it has widely been in use in the Oriental countries. The Chinese, Indians and Japanese have been using it for over four centuries. Ancient Babylonians used this in their famous Hanging Gardens while the Greeks, some 2000 years ago, wrote an elaborate treatise on this technique. The French know it as the Biodynamic French-Intensive method. The colonial Americans also were aware of this technique; while the Oneota used ridge-till farming which is a form of raised bed gardening. If you want to know more about this topic, you can read the tips and guide below.

Also known as the Square Foot method and the Growing Beds method, this is emerging as a dependable alternative for today’s world. Raised bed gardening is very space effective and is also economical. The advantages of raised beds in gardening as opposed to in ground gardening are many.

Some of the uses of raised beds are:

* Prevents soil erosion and compacting

* Decreases soil fertility problems

* Maximises yield

* Conserve water and nutrients

* Can be built on slopes and terraces

* Less weeding: seasonal tilling is not required as there is no soil compaction. If proper care is taken weeds disappear gradually

* Permits soil modification: can be built in places like parking lots, terraces, steep slopes and other places where the soil is compacted.

* Low maintenance: a concentrated space means better management of fertilizer, water, mulch and other nutrients, ensuring no waste

* Increase in growing season: well prepared beds mean that the plant roots can breathe better. Raised beds catch better sun and warm up faster, properly made beds facilitate better drainage. These factor amend for a longer growing season

* Protection of plants: the typical structure of raised beds helps protect the plants from foot traffic

* Accessible to the physically challenged: the typical raised bed structure enables better access for people using wheelchairs or those who have a bad back.

One has to be very careful while choosing material to make the boxes for a raised bed. There are aesthetically designed, affordable boxes on the market. They are food grade (to stop chemical leaching), UV stabilized polyethylene boxes. If you want to home-make your raised bed boxes, you might want to use simple timber sleepers and bind them together with steel rods. You need to make sure to use untreated hardwood to prevent chemicals leaching into soil. You can consider using planks and rebar or concrete blocks; or you might want to wattle or you can simply use some 20-30 sandbags to make raised beds for your garden. The ideal size of a typical raised bed measures 6 to 8 feet long and is 6 to 8 feet high and has a width of 3 to 6 feet.

Its time you chose to take this option and hope you enjoy your time with raised beds.

Best Plants for Containers

Author: RobertCorter

Nasturtiums, Strawberries, Petunias, Licorice, edible flowers and even some vegetables. So much can be grown in pots and containers! Gardening with containers is a brilliant alternative for those who love gardening but do not have the space to create one. You could plant small flower plants.Also, vegetables like sweet potatoes, tomatoes and more. The best part about them, unlike the in-ground ones, is that being comparatively smaller, they are easy to carry around… an option that suits those of us who live in apartment complexes and have to change from one apartment to the other. There are many plants which you could plant year-round. You could even design your own beautiful, small kitchen garden. You could use simple home-made mulch and loam for your plants. Try using boxes and colourful hanging pots with attractive looking strings. Try and pick the right kind of plants. The very same plants planted in a way without innovation and artistic taste look so dull. The charm is gone from your garden. So, make your garden look aesthetic, smart and fabulous by designing it with panache. That will enhance the look of your patio or porch. You could try some elegant looking raised beds with covers or you could use the versatile Hypertufa to tastefully design your garden.

Your garden could look bright or dull. The trick is in your choice! Gardening with containers is so much more fun. Choose your containers and their shapes according to the types of plants you wish to plant. Most of the domestic plants fall under three categories, depending on the shape in which they grow. They grow vertically or horizontally or they cascade. Combining all the three gives a rich, complete and wholesome look. If you are a person with a taste for the bold antique, you can try planting just one thick clump of bamboo in a container. Plant some beautiful Bonsai (and prune it well) or false cypress on either sides of the bamboo. You can also experiment flanking it with feather reed grass.

If you are planning a soft look for your flower garden, you may experiment a combination of Salvia, Verbena and Wishbone flower. You may want to flank them with small shrubs or large perennials. Plants like the golden sword combine with almost anything. Try a combination of golden sword with bergenia or with redtwig dogwoods. You may also like the idea of dividing your garden into smaller sections. You could plant varieties of cactus in one, boxwoods in the other, in the third, a combination of ornamental year-round plants with flowers and vegetables in the fourth.

If you live in dry areas, you may try combinations like the sempervivum or the agave shawii or the hibiscus in different pots surrounding the upright equisetum fluviatile in a medium-sized pot in the center. There are no thumb rules in this. You can master the art of gardening with containers through practice and experimenting. Have fun and enjoy growing with your garden.

One of the coolest things that you can do today is start a nice and healthy garden. Whether you have a large backyard, front yard, or you have an offsite location where you can cultivate some soil and get moving forward with growing things. At first glance, the idea of learning how to start an organic garden may seem like a difficult task but it really is a matter of setting up a few steps and moving forward. A little patience goes a long way, that’s for sure, but overall, it’s not a complicated matter, if you know what to do. Consider the following quick steps to getting this done today.

Break Up The Soil

The first thing that you must do, no matter what you’re trying to grow is break up the soil. Soil has to be broken up in order for roots to take hold easier. Make sure that you do this far in advance of your planting, and if the soil is too rough, hard, or seems to be lacking in nutrients, than make sure that you add additional soil. Visiting your local hardware store’s garden section will help you with this. Make sure that you also invest in plant food and get the soil work done properly. After this is done, add some water and make sure that you dampen the area, but do not flood it, this will also help with the cultivation process.

Seeds or Plants

The next thing to consider is whether or not you’re going to plant seeds or you want to have pre-existing plants and then place them in rows. This is a matter that is up to you. For those that are patient, planting seeds is a great option, just make sure that they are organic seeds. As for plants, the same criteria goes, but make sure that you purchase plenty of natural potting soil so that you can mix the existing dirt with the new stuff and the roots can take hold properly. The transfer should be quick and easy. Once this is done, make sure that the plants or seeds get a little water, and wait for the harvest.

Issues To Look Out For

There are some issues that you will need to consider when you are learning how to start an organic garden and they vary. If you have insects or any other types of pests, you’ll want to find a way to stop them with natural herbicides. There are a lot of home remedies for this, and exploring what’s available may help. Not only that, you may encounter bugs, and other things of that nature. To help offset that, purchase earthworms and put them into the soil and allow them to help create pockets for your plants, and food for birds and other animals that may find them better than your crops.

The above preliminary steps are just a few things that you can do to start moving forward with your garden today. Just remember, the best way to grow something is to simply go forth and do it. A little trial and error can go a long way, that’s for sure.

Aquaponics is becoming a very popular home&garden topic these days. Most people are familiar with raising their own vegetables at home and all of the many benefits that provides. However, when you add raising fish to your vegetable garden you enjoy an enormous amount of benefits. Here is additional information on this “green” method for gardening.

Aquaponics is more than raising your own fish and vegetables. When it is done properly, you create your very own eco-system with plants taking care of animals and vice versa. As fish live in water they produce waste material in the form of ammonia and nitrates. When these things are allowed to build up they can be very bad for the health of the fish.

Fish waste material happens to be good for plants. When plants are allowed to remove these nutrients from water, they are nourished. At the same time, the water is cleaned and safe for the fish to live in, and the cycle is continued.

Many modern day farming businesses are making the change to aquaponics. When plants do not have to actively search for food they are more efficient. Plants thrive in this type of environment and grow faster.

Many states are concerned with water conservation these days. Modern aquaponic operations use far less water than the same amount of plants grown conventionally. In fact, it can be as much as ninety percent less.

Growing vegetables and fish starts with establishing a good system first. This includes the proper filtration methods. Filters need plenty of beneficial bacteria to operate properly.

Starting your own aquaponics operation may take a little work, but it is not as difficult as most people would imagine. It is important to get the system running before adding the fish. Of course it is much easier if you take the time learn and understand about this fascinating pastime.

DIY Aquaponics is not hard to learn as there is a great deal of information online. One of the best ways to learn is to start small. For a reasonable price you can easily purchase a small aquaponic system online. You also can purchase inexpensive systems for kids, to introduce aquaponics to the entire family.

There are some excellent videos and “how to” guides if you look in the right places. You should draw out your aquaponic plan first. This gives you a good plan to follow. You also will need piping or hoses for your water. Your plants need a tub to grow in and you need some type of container for the fish. Gravel is essential as well as the right pumps, along with a source of electricity. Larger systems should have something like a green house for best results.

Try to make sure that your home&garden aquaponic system is about waist high. This makes it easier to work with. You will not have to bend over a great deal or work from a ladder, this way. As long as you do your homework beforehand, you should have few problems with your new aquaponic system.

Sciatica Causes

Author: LaserSpine

Recognizing Common Sciatica Causes

As just about anyone suffering from the condition knows all too well, sciatica causes a variety of extremely frustrating, and occasionally debilitating, symptoms. In order to effectively treat these symptoms, however, it is incredibly important that you turn to a medical professional to develop a comprehensive treatment plan that gives you the best chance of overcoming your condition. The wrong approach may prove completely ineffective and a waste of time, or worse, it might make your symptoms increase.

What is Sciatica?

Before we can discuss how to manage sciatica, it is important to understand what this condition actually entails. For starters, sciatica isn’t a condition itself, per se, but a collection of symptoms that may arise as a result of the compression of the sciatic nerve in the lower back (lumbar spine).

The sciatic nerve is the longest and thickest nerve in the body. This nerve horsetails off the spinal cord in the lower back and extends down through the buttocks, hips, and legs, before culminating near the toes. In short, the sciatic nerve is extremely important because it is instrumental in our ability to walk upright. The problem, however, is that sciatica is extremely common as a result of either damage or deterioration to the lumbar spinal anatomy.

Causes of Sciatica

Over the years, the anatomical elements that support the spinal column gradually deteriorate. This wear and tear is extremely normal and an unavoidable part of the natural aging process. The vertebral joints that connect adjacent vertebrae can become arthritic; the intervertebral discs that cushion and support vertebrae may become worn and ruptured; muscle can weaken; ligaments could calcify, and other problems might arise. The lower back is one of the most common places for problems to develop because the lumbar spine is both highly flexible and also supports a significant portion of the body’s weight. As a result, degenerative spine conditions are particularly common in the lower back, which can directly lead to the compression of the sciatic nerve and causes sciatica in the lower extremities.

Here are just a few of the conditions that can cause sciatica:

• Herniated discs

• Bulging discs

• Facet disease

• Spondylolisthesis

• Spondylosis

Initial Treatment Options

One piece of good news when it comes to sciatica is that in most cases, symptoms can normally be managed effectively with a tailored regimen of noninvasive techniques. These treatments are designed to alleviate strain on the lower back and allow the sciatic compression to gradually abate. The use of low-impact exercises, stretching techniques, heat packs, ice, and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are particularly popular. In some instances, lifestyle changes may also be recommended to complement treatment. For instance, losing weight can be an effective treatment method because the weight of carrying around excess body fat can put undue burden on the spine and exacerbate discomfort.

Surgery

While conservative means are usually effective for most people, in the event that sciatica causes discomfort that does not respond to noninvasive treatment, surgical decompression may be considered. The goal of this type of treatment is to physically remove the source of the sciatic nerve constriction and also ensure that spinal stability is maintained. Historically, spinal fusion was the only real option in this instance. This type of procedure entails the opening of the spinal column in order to remove the intervertebral disc and fuse adjacent vertebrae together. The problem with open spine surgery, however, is that it is major surgery that requires hospitalization, extensive rehabilitation, and puts the patient at risk for post-operative complications, such as infection and scar tissue formation.

In recent years, advances in endoscopic technology have made minimally invasive spine procedures a new, compelling option for some patients. These procedures can usually be completed through a very small incision through which surgeons gently push aside soft tissue (rather than cutting it), which greatly shortens the recovery time. In fact, endoscopic procedures are normally conducted on an outpatient basis.

Each type of treatment has its own unique advantages and limitations, so it pays to explore your options, learn more about sciatica causes, and speak with several doctors before consenting to any one treatment.

Patrick Foote is the Director of eBusiness at Laser Spine Institute, the leader in endoscopic spine surgery. Laser Spine Institute specializes in safe and effective outpatient procedures for the treatment of sciatica and several other spinal conditions.

Grow A Veggie Garden With Ease

Author: PatrickBoswell

These days, everyone is all about eating organic and natural. Organic food, however, can cost a small fortune, and this even includes produce. It’s much more cost-efficient to grow your own vegetables. Plus, being able to eat something you actually helped to create can be a very rewarding experience, as well as one that helps you to feel connected to the earth. Even if you don’t have a green thumb, know that some vegetables are just naturally easy to grow. If you get started with these simple veggies, you’ll soon be feeling confident enough to try the more difficult ones.

Let’s start with one of the most simple and versatile of all the veggies—lettuce! You can use lettuce in salad, on sandwiches and wraps, and as a lovely garnish to any meal. Best of all, it doesn’t take a genius to grow full, lush heads. For best results, sow your seeds in rows every two weeks or so. As long as you’ve got plenty of sun and frequent watering, you should have no problem and can expect those delightful green heads to start popping up quickly! Don’t just stick to iceberg lettuce either; all different types are tasty, healthy, and easy!

Carrots are a root vegetable, and root vegetables are notoriously difficult to grow. This gives carrots an unfairly bad rep and often causes people to steer clear of growing them in their gardens. However, these people are unfortunately missing out a veggie that is tasty and surprisingly simple to cultivate, providing you give it the proper care. Be sure to plant your carrots in a place where there are no rocks or turbulent soil. As soon as you see the bushy green tops at the soil line, you can pick and enjoy these yummy veggies!

Cucumbers are great for growing too—it’s just that most people plant them at the wrong time. You should only plant cucumbers when you know there is no chance of cold nights or frost. If they get too chilly, your crop will likely be ruined, making these ideal for summer planting. You’ll also need to make sure that each cucumber plant has lots of space, since they are prone to sprawling. You can enjoy your cucumbers fresh out of the earth or, if you’re a pickle person with a bit of patience, you can create delicious homemade pickles.

While tomatoes are considered a fruit, we still think they deserve inclusion on our list, mainly because they’re so yummy and wonderfully easy to sprout. You’ll have the easiest time of it if you get a starter plant, which are widely available at any garden or home improvement store, but with a little extra care, it is possible to grow these babies from seeds. Tomatoes need little water and fairly well drained soil, but sun is the most important factor. Place them in an area of your yard that is exposed to full, direct sunlight for the best outcome.
