Soil must be kept clean of "debris." They do NOT attract slugs or any other pests (Advantage is a great aid with other pests.) Colour is constant and reliable.


In addition to which they are continuously blooming and winter over rather well.

Sorry. No Q's. I decided my Cammasia quamash is really muscari I can't remember planting.

Kat, I look forward to seeing your Garry Oak every spring when we have the soup. Beautiful Quince too. I must add that to my list for closer inspection to see if I can grow it here or if it will fit in my yard! Love the Meadowsweet Betty and the Quatre chaise, Ginseng!

Loving the "Q's", and was so happy to see some posts with quince; had one at my other house and left it there, against my better judgement,,(new owner yanked it out). I have to get over feeling bad for what I left behind!

Have been looking for one around here; no luck,,so,,will look when I go to my son's, three hours south of here. They have two amazing greenhouses there, one of which is at least an acre inside, and the same amount outside. Gardener's heaven!

No Q's here to share. I tried Quince once - but didn't seem to like it here much. Ginsing - really like your colorful Muskoka chairs!
