Flower Power Garden Hour

Sep 22, 2019

Marlene answers a variety of listener submitted questions this week. The focus is on flowers this week, with a smattering of vegetables thrown in.

  • Black tulip magnolia – not blooming, unhealthy looking
  • Mums – growing tall, but not flowering
  • Bougainvillea – growing out of control, how to train
  • Christmas cactus – half growing well, half not
  • Butterfly bushes – how to prep for winter
  • Japanese maples – browning as summer gets hot
  • “Rusty” leaves – what is causing, how to mitigate
  • Tomatoes – second harvest is green and hard
  • Avocados – tree not producing
