Welcome to debraq's Member Page
I now have two annual gardens, one sun perennial, one shady perennial, and two vegetable gardens. I also added a cherry tree, three lilacs, and assorted shrubs.
I love climbing vines, like morning glory, moonflower clematis, spanish flag, climbing Blackeye Susan, and I have two types of honeysuckle.
I grow herbs,corn, beans,cukes,tomatoes,( regular and heirloom) brussel sprouts, broccoli, radish, beets, and
My favorite plants of all, are anything fragrant. So of course I have 35 Stargazer lillys. I would love to find Bears Breeches ( acanthus mollis~~or Acanthus Spinosus ) but so far, have had no luck finding it.
I am also a complusive seed collecter and saver. I would love to share. I also love nightblooming flowers. I have just started with roses after a long fight with myself. I love the fragrance but hate the black spot and powdery mildew which is rampant in our area. ~~~~~~~~~Favorite Garden Quote~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ "GARDENING IS A KIND OF DISEASE. IT INFECTS YOU, YOU CANNOT EXCAPE IT. WHEN YOU GO VISITING, YOUR EYES ROVE ABOUT THE GARDEN; YOU INTERRUPT THE SERIOUS COCKTAIL DRINKING BECAUSE OF AN IRRESISTIBLE IMPULSE TO GET UP AND PULL A WEED." ~~~~~Lewis Gannit~~~~~
