Pedigree-Based Question

Posted: 04/02/2017 at 19:51

I have several 6"- tall African marigolds in need of bigger room, but they have been raised from ordinary, unnamed seed. Is it any good pinching them so as to produce considerably shorter plants, or it matters nothing, as the ultimate height should depend on the cultivar? Thank you.

What is eating my avacado plant ?

Have you looked for weevils?  They are a common greenhouse pest.

The first two are echeverias, the last tal thing is still a mystery.

I´m not sure... It looks a little like Fittonia to me.

What is this and how do I look after it!

Very like the ubiquitous Trachycarpus fortunei, Chusan palm, one of the hardy palms. I think you do nothing but remove dead leaves, but let others more acquainted with it advise you.

Although not always reliable, gladioli occupy little room and are always a pleasant scene at festive occasions.

Thank you, nut. I will try removing the stems of the red flowers...

We have a rose bush which is like Black Dragon, but my mother does not like it, so it is a bit neglected. It has recently grown a single pure yellow rose, apparently from the graft, not the stock.

Is there a way to keep this reversion? We like it more this way!

It took me too long to place this potted Salvia patens in the ground, and small as it is it started producing flower buds.

As summer is coming now to the southern hemisphere where I live, should I

1. nip off the buds?

2. pinch the growing tip?

3. do both?

Thank you in advance !
