    I bought a windmill palm earlier this year. A little sprig came up next to it that I didn't recognize. I let it grow. This is what it turned into. I can't find it anywhere. Anyone know what it is???

    This plant was growing profusely in Duck, NC USA. Appeared to flower in both full sun and medium shade. Assume it is a perennial as was found in large, established-looking beds. Any idea what this is? Marshall

    I have had this cactus for actual decades now. Planting cactuses in pop-bottle terrariums was an activity one day during Sparks, the youngest level of Girl Guides.

    Plant ID?

    I received two plants from my sister, cuttings from a prolific plant she's had for a while but has no idea what it is or where it came from. The larger plant initially looked similar to the smaller one but was struggling more, so I put it on the balcony for more sun and it promptly … Read more »

    I have noticed that the leaves of my Pittosporum tobira have started to curl. I have looked online to see what could be the cause, however unable to find why this is happening. Can anyone help explain why the leaves are curling like this? Is it normal or is there something wrong? Any advice … Read more »

    Front Yard, Grass Improvement

    Last night It rained, thundered, and the sky lite up with lightening! This is so unusual in Southern California. I wonder if we are still in a drought. Perhaps our lawn will be greener before January or February. I was thinking we had to take out the whole lawn area and replace it with red bark ...

    Tomatoes in Autumn

    Although our summer tomatoes are gone, this bush seems to have one last harvest! The tomatoes are green thus far, but I hope they ripen. I last counted 25 of them.

    Grape Harvest Coming to an End

    We were so very happy with our grapes this year! They were sweet and tender, with a melt in your mouth skin. We will have to get used to store bought grapes again, until we try planting and harvesting grapes again.

    Greener Lawn Days

    Red Dog is sitting on our green lawn. We are trying to get this lawn back to greener days after these few years of water rationing and drought in many Southern California cities.

    Grape Ladder Make-Shift Trellis

    Here is the ladder my husband put in as a make-shift trellis to allow the grapes to have a wider span. (Also to not interude on the neighbor's fence.) Thus far, this seems to be working.

    Just starting

    I know next to nothing about plants.  I never really had much of an interest, the garden was always my Dad's domain, but recently I've been diagnosed with a mobility disorder.  Certain tasks are very difficult and there is no cure- the only thing that might help is certain "low impact" exercises. ...
