Peace lily and cats


Peace lily and cats lilies are grown from bulbs. Lilies of the valley and alpine hyacinth are grown from seeds. Flowering bulbs are usually divided in the spring to increase production. It's time to re-pot and divide bulbs from containers when they have outgrown their container. Lift the bulbs out of the pot and replant the bulbs into larger pots or into the ground. Divide or pry apart the clumps of soil around the bulbs to encourage division. If you pry apart the soil around the bulb, it should break apart easily. Dig holes, place the bulbs, and add soil to the base of the pot. Press the bulbs into the soil. If you don't want the bulbs to be seen, keep the soil around the bulbs hidden in the pot. This is a time to clean out the container, put it away, or replant it. Lilies and alpine hyacinth usually bloom for one season and should be dead-headed, or removed, to encourage flowering the next year.

**What do you have to do to care for your lilies?**

Lilies are an easy plant to care for, you don't need to worry about fertilizing or pruning.

**What is the best time to plant bulbs?**

It is best to plant bulbs in early spring or late fall. When planting bulbs in the spring, add a mulch of straw or leaves to keep the soil warm and moist.

**How do you know when to divide?**

Before you plant, look for a place where you can plant bulbs in clumps of three or four. A few inches should separate the bulbs, but the clump should not be broken apart. It should feel tight when you push on the bulbs. Plant when the ground has warmed and there is no danger of frost. If you replant in the spring, it is best to divide your bulbs in the fall.

**Do you fertilize?**

Yes, you should use a balanced fertilizer and follow the directions on the label. Apply the fertilizer at least twice a month.

**Do you water?**

Yes, during the first year, give your plants a thorough soaking. Water each plant every two weeks.

**How much time does it take to bloom?**

The lilies are ready to bloom when the buds start to open and the flower heads are open.

**How do you kill a lily bulb?**

To harvest a lily bulb, pull it out of the ground and leave the root in place. The bulb will grow back.

**What do you do to start seed-starting beds?**

Use a special potting mix that has a higher percentage of compost than your regular potting mix, about 20 to 25 percent. You should keep the pots about 2 inches apart, 4 inches deep in a greenhouse or cold frame. Keep the pots indoors in the winter and bring them out when the weather gets warm. Start seeds by soaking the seeds overnight and planting them the following day in the pots. Water when the soil dries out, which should be within a few hours. Keep them well watered and away from drafts to keep the temperature from rising too much. When the plants start to flower, they will need less water. Keep the plants healthy. Move the pots to the greenhouse or cold frame in the fall.

**How long do lilies grow?**

Tulip bulbs grow very large in less than a year. After two years, they will bloom. If you divide the bulbs in the fall, you will keep the bulb from getting too large and may keep your plants more productive.

**How long do hostas live?**

Hostas will live to be at least 50 years. These are hardy perennials, so they can be replanted year after year.

**How do I cut back hostas?**

You will need to wait until the stems of hostas are completely brown to know if it is safe to trim them back. Many gardeners will use pruning shears. A better approach is to use a sharp pair of gardening shears, which can be used to carefully remove the foliage. Take extra care to make sure the foliage is cut away completely. Trimming back the hosta can stimulate more flowers on the plant.

**What is the difference between a perennial and a biennial?**

A perennial is a plant that grows back in the same location for at least two years. A biennial grows for only one season. Plants that grow back every year for 2 years are hardy perennials. Plants that grow for one season and then die are biennials.

**What do I do with cuttings from perennials?**

Cuttings may be taken from the stems of perennial plants. To make this easy, you should choose a small plant that is not growing vigorously and carefully lift the plant, letting the leaves that are nearest the stem fall back to the ground. Try to get rid of the leaves you do not want to create new plants. Cut the stem off just above a node with two leaves and remove the root end. This will create a root-tip-pruning method.

**How do I grow herbs and vegetables?**

Herbs and vegetables can be easily planted together in a garden. Before planting, you should select a location where you can provide the plants with enough sunlight. If you have plenty of room, use the raised beds you created for the hostas. A simple garden bed is adequate. If you don't have enough space for raised beds, try to create a plan to plant herbs and vegetables together. Planting vegetables in a container gives you a little more freedom and is easier to move around. Planting tomatoes, peppers, and eggplants in individual pots makes them easy to find and easy to pick. You can grow a variety of herbs in pots on your deck, patio, or porch.

**What do I need to plant a flower garden?**

While most people want flowers, they often have problems with having enough space. One of the best ways to make flower gardens on smaller areas is to work with annuals instead of perennials. Annuals can be started indoors and transplanted outdoors. They grow quickly and do not take up a lot of space once they flower. Flowers need a certain amount of water to be healthy. It is important to water them frequently, especially if they are in containers.

**What do I need to grow vegetables?**

Vegetables are a lot more complicated than flowers. They require a specific growing zone, and they need to be well balanced. If your growing zone is not quite warm enough for a fall vegetable crop, choose a warm-season vegetable, such as lettuce or peas. If your growing zone is too cold for tomatoes, select a warm-season vegetable, such as corn or peas. These vegetables can be grown either in containers or in beds that are raised an inch or so above the ground to provide a little more warmth. Tomatoes can be grown in either beds or pots. Tomatoes and peppers will need trellising. Corn, peppers, squash, and cucumbers can be grown in an area that is raised enough to allow the corn to grow above the ground. Growing vegetable garden beds in containers gives you more control. You can move them easily, plant other vegetables around them, and move them indoors during the winter. Choose your garden beds wisely.

**What do I need to grow berries?**

If you have a sunny area and a little bit of space, you can grow your own berries. Strawberries need lots of water to thrive. A berry garden also
