Need help with "let's identify my every Perennials"

Postby dj_backq » May 27, 2008 9:26 pm

You may already know this about me, but I'm more of a veggie gardener and am able to answer lots of questions about veggie gardens and organic techniques.

But I don't have much experience in perrenials and my property is loaded! I know how to maintain them but the problem is that I don't know all their names!! I want to map everything out this year, but it's real hard as I can only identify a few plants on my own.

Anybody's help would be much apreciated! I will post pictures all summer long about the new things that grow so that anyone of you may comment. I will also add numbers on the pictures to help point out what is what. Keep in mine that I know the names of some of them, but will ask anyway to confirm.

I will start posting pictures tomorrow, hope somebody is up for the challenge!!!!

Thanks!!!!
Andre

We are always up for a challenge Andre! I would suggest that you post your photos in either Garden Galley or Plant Talk.
I'm going to move this post to PT. :wink:

Sorry Lyn,

My thinking was that the mapping of my yard is one of my big projects this summer, since I'll be posting on it all summer, just thought it would be better in projects. I don't want to keep disturbing people in PT by always bringing my post up the list when I update it.

But it's find here, I'll maybe get more responses.

Well it certainly would be a big project to map and get the names of everything!!

PT just gets more hits than Projects....

Agreed! Have about 100 plants, bushes and trees to map out!

LMAO.I am pretty sure she ment play name that plant game,not that she would pay him. :) You could also take peices of the plants to the local green house and find yourself a landscaping person.They should know what they are doing and what the plants are. :D
