sobeena5 created a new topic ' Garden for my house!' in the forum. 1 month ago

Hi all, I love to travel. Last month I visited Calgary and saw some beautiful landscapes maintained in few houses. I really loved it and would like to have the same in my house too. On inquiring, I came to know that the designs were from one of the commercial landscaping contractors in Calgary [ infinitygardens.ca/residential/about ]. As I am not really aware of the contractors and designers here, could anyone here please help me to do this? I would like to have a small waterfall too. I also have a plan to make a peony garden in my front yard. Could you please share about the ideal conditions for growing them?

I am sorry that, It is already too big and 10 years old I guess.

I completely agree with walter. You would take time to keep the plants live again.

Thank you. It was a quite informative post.


JoseVenn created a new topic ' Mulches' in the forum. 1 month ago

Hello all,
I started gardening last year. That was my first gardening experience. My garden seems to be unhealthy and I don't understand where it went wrong. My wife said that it could be because of our soil. I was thinking of buying mulches and garden soil from garden soil suppliers Toronto ( www.essentialdisposal.com/landscape-supply/soils-and-mulches/ ). Does anyone here know how to prepare homemade mulches?? It will be really helpful if you share the information that you know. Thanks in advance.

I am not sure about the preventive measures. But I would like to share few which I've heard. Do not water the marigold from above. Also try to plant marigolds that are labeled powdery mildew resistant.

HI Chan - here's a great article about Staghorn Fern care from Walter Andersen in San Diego maybe that will help.

The temp outside has been dropping below 30 and icy, so I slowly brought my fern back indoors via bringing it into the garage at night. After a few weeks of doing that its now in the house enjoying a steady temperature of 64-73 degrees.

Every winter that I do this - I lose a few leaves. How often should I be watering? Once a week? Here's a picture of one of the leaves:

Any ideas/tips for preventing any further damage?


carol palmer created a new topic ' Polycarbonate garden roofing panels' in the forum. 4 months ago

I am planning to replace my present garden roof which is galvanised/corrugated one with polycarbonate. Will there be building code issues or runoff? Please suggest me good light weight roofing services. Any suggestions on roof lines east inc ( www.rooflines.com/services/commercial-roofing/ ) Are they reliable? Suggestions on polycarbonate panels. Thanks in advance


carol palmer replied to the topic 'Re:Overwintering' in the forum. 4 months ago

cover them with thick layer of mulch, or dig and move to a cold frame or cool basement. In case of container plants outdoor, overwinter them , packing them in large boxes at the center packed full with leaves.


carol palmer replied to the topic 'Trash into treasure' in the forum. 4 months ago

Excellent idea. We need to encourage such innovative ideas which would also ensure that waste is handles in a sensible manner.


carol palmer replied to the topic 'Dumping garden wastes' in the forum. 4 months ago

Disposing waste in unethical manners can lead to huge environmental impact and thereby serious problems. Leachate produced as a result of waste decomposition causes pollution.
