Good morning everyone,
As I said in the previous posting, a bit late today.
Rather busy this week, so it could happen more often...
Here is today's harvest of gardening programmes.
Oklahoma Gardening has the following...
This episode features plants for the new gardening season, including Native and Tropical Euphorbias for the Landscape, a native spring blooming tree, rose alternatives, trial gardens at The Botanic Garden at OSU, the Hardy Ice Plant, and the Passion Vine.
The Backyard Farmer is also back.
Here is what they have got...
This program focuses on roses, insect pests of roses, garden clean up and an interview about wild bird seed.
Querbeet made an insect hotel, tested robot lawnmowers, looked at snowdrops and bougainvilleas, made an ice bowl with leaves and berries in it and looks ahead at the coming year.
Clips of the individual items from the programme here...
And Kaffee oder Tee has a clip about membersof the almond family and their blossoms.
Have a lovely day!
Cold wet and grey here at the moment, and getting colder over the next few days.
But at least spring is getting a bit closer every day.
Here is what I found on the web...
Decouvertes Jardins has been spring cleaning and renovating.
Kaffee oder Tee has a clip about how to look after plants which have been brought indoors for winter.
They also have a clip about bonsai.
Have a great day, whatever you're doing!
It looks like winter is coming here today, brrr.
No snow yet though, fortunately!
And very little gardening on the web today.
Kaffee oder Tee has a clip about herbal teas which will make you feel warm.
And I found a multi-media gardening special from a German regional broadcaster.
It's supposed to have pictures, text, audio and video.
Haven't had time to explore yet though.
Have a good day!
Hello Ginger 2,
Welcome to the forum! This is a lovely forum, full of very helpful people, so if you have any questions, or simply want to chat about gardening or plants, just go ahead!
Yes, I really like Gardening Australia, and it always surprises me how much of what they have on the programme is really useful here in Europe too.
Pity they have a break at the moment.
I quite like begonias too. Not just the ones which are grown for their flowers, but the ones with the coloured leaves too. I have some of those as houseplants.
There is at least one other member from Australia on the forum. Her name is Pat E and she often participates on the Hello Forkers thread. That is the thread for general chat, where we can talk about all sorts of stuff, and not just about gardening.
I too like growing stuff from seed and I know thaty many others on the forum do so too.
Lovely to hear from you all the way from warm and sunny Australia, while we are at the start of a cold spell...
Have a lovely evening !
Hi Ginger welcome, hope you get as much from this site as I do. So much knowledge and we have an Aussie , Pat she is north of Sydney, I think near the Snowies (?)
we used to live in Melbourne and I tride all sorts of ways to grow bulbs. I missed my spring bulbs so much. However I had to give up and enjoyed instead bulbs I couldn't do in Scotland. Lots and lots of freesia
Hi Ginger 2. I live on the Monaro! About an hours drive south of Canberra. Which region are you in? We have something in common at the moment with the heat, but we had some rain come through late yesterday which has helped to cool things down quire a bit. Welcome to the Forum.
Kleinpieper, thanks for letting my know about the other Australian on the thread. I hadn't seen your very helpful thread before, so that something to keep in mind when I'm bored with TV.
Sorry about the name spelling - I have a permanent problem with my spell checker.
Good morning Lily Pilly and Pat,
Thanks for your lovely welcome posts for Ginger 2.
I hope he or she will come back to read them.
Pat, I hope you'll find some nice programmes on this thread. Sometines there are really nice things on the web, and before we know it Gardeners' World and Gardening Australia will start broadcasting again too!
