For years my brother has been banging on about his preserved lemons, I have been nodding gently and looking impressed, but secretly wondering what on earth you actually DO with preserved lemons. For example, to pinpoint the exact position of the lemon tree on the top right of the illustration here, the tape measure was laid out at right angles from the top fence (the tree is three metres in), and then the tape measure was laid out at right angles from the side fence and that distance is four metres in (this is noted on the paper).

I usually meet old friends there every time I go.” –Anne D. “You have a great selection of plants, some of which I have never seen!! Creating layers of vegetation with understory trees and large shrubs is an important element of shade planting. In sandy soils that don’t contain enough organic matter and are made up of rocky sandy mineral content but don’t have the organics content that do the job of absorbing water or nutrients and retaining that water and nutrients in the top upper most soil where the root system of your lawn or vegetable garden or flower garden are.

While spring officially begins March 20, the just completed warm (sometimes hot) February means gardeners in southern California need to get an early start to the growing season. Then there's the cost of buying and installing the plants, stones, pavers, fencing and other landscaping features. The conventional view of landscape design is a detailed drawing specifying the location of each shrub and flowerbed. Consider the reproductive biology of the plants selected for your garden, or the ways in which particular species can be maintained to lessen the risk of their unwanted spread (for example, deadheading or removing the flowers off Agapanthus as soon as the flowers die). 7.

Apply grease bands to the trunks of apple, pear, cherry and plum trees to stop wingless moths climbing into the trees to lay their eggs. Depending on their composition, they (like sponges) have the ability to catch and hold water. As they grow, the lower portions of their stems die but remain attached as the upper stems branch and spread, creating an interwoven mat. These little clown collars completely upset any sense of visual flow that may have been present in the yard; when we circle trees we instead create individual little eyesores, and completely annex the trees from the overall landscape.

If you run several rows close together (only a few inches apart) to create a bed culture, consider using one drip hose if it is up to 18 inches wide and two drip hoses if it is 24 to 36 inches wide. If your trees or shrubs carry berries, like verbena, holly or firethorn, leave the pruning of these until the spring, so garden birds have a food source over the winter. The idea here is pretty basic and works very well with almost every garden. At this stage think about the size of the plant and the look you want for a particular location, rather than the specific plant.
