    Venus Fly Traps

    Yea I have heard some similiar things but I did have a fellow gardener who said that one plant survived much better with the fly trap around one plant compared to another. So we will see. I can always sell them back on ebay!

    Venus Fly Traps

    I bought 10 on ebay bare root for about $28. I can give you the name of the seller if you want. You just have to look for a good deal. We used to sell them at my work for $8 each so it's a good deal.

    male or female flowers? before they open?

    Here is a link to a photo. The bottom of the flowers appear to be different so I think you should be able to tell the difference. http://www.mobot.org/gardeninghelp/plantfinder/sshow.asp?ssid=2&slddtl=1

    male or female flowers? before they open?

    I had about 3 or 4 squashes on each plant. I didn't know that the flower stays on when the squash is being formed. Since last year I didn't have ANY squash. I only have about 1 flower with no squash on it so I'm assuming that it's a male flower?

    male or female flowers? before they open?

    How do you tell the difference? Last year I had two plants and no squash and this year all 6 of them are producing squash from what I can tell. I just can't keep the ants off of them!

    How to get rid of green cabbage worms?

    I have hand picked about 4 or 5 green worms and several little white balls that I am guessing are the eggs. How do I keep them off of my collard plants for good?

    tomato plants drying out??

    If you just cut off the brown leaves, it will be fine. I had one alot bigger than that and after I got rid of the dead leaves it thrived. If you leave the dead leaves on there then yes it will kill the plant.

    My veggies 2011

    Very nice. I have little cukes growing as well as tomatoes which are taking forever! The recent tornadoes that passed through us haven't been helpful either.

    Strange Weeds

    I keep having strange weeds grow beside my cucumber plants that look like little cucumber seedlings. However I just planted my cucumbers and there is no way that I dropped any extra seeds because they were transplants with no flowers on them. Every once in a while a little weed blends in that...

    Aloe Vera Plants

    Where is a good place to put two Aloe Vera plants if you wanted to keep them inside. I have heard that they need to face away from the sun and others say direct sun. Will they survive inside my house?

    tomato plants drying out??

    This could, I doubt, but could be from root worms. If you think you have done everything right and they died for no reason then consider root worms. These worms tangle up your roots in knots. But you will have to pull out one of the plants to see if this is the problem. I am thinking that's what...

    Organic pesticides

    I am about to start growing haberno peppers just to use for a very hot pepper spray. I prefer the garlic spray because it doesn't burn your skin! Boil hot water and put in about 4 whole garlic cloves and let it sit overnight in a gallon pitcher. Put it in a spray bottle and just spray the...

    When are potatoes done?

    Glad you asked this question because I am about to plant some potatoes. The good thing about Georgia is that it's really never too late for anything. Everything just thrives around here.

    Keeping my own seed

    Did you buy the seeds or were they given to you? Usually heirloom seeds are very expensive and hard to find. The nursery shops around here in GA don't sell heirloom starter plants so you would have had to plant them from seed more than likely. What are the variety names of your plants? Someone...

    My bell pepper plants have blackish or purplish looking spots in the crotch of the plant. I found a similiar photo on the internet that looks like mine but have found no answer as to what it is or how to cure it. Any help is appreciated.
