Truly an aristocrat of the plant kingdom, this palm makes a memorable impression wherever it is grown. Massive and symmetrical with a smoothly sculpted trunk this palm looks almost artificial, like a denizen of an idealized Disney landscape. But it is real and lends a distinctive air to parkways and boulevards all over South Florida and the Caribbean. In older references you may see this genus referred to as Oreodoxa but the genus name was changed some years ago to Roystona (in honor of General Roy Stone an army engineer who served in the Caribbean at the turn of the century). ::Imported into Florida in great numbers during the the 20’s and 30’s, the Cuban Royal palm (Roystonea regia) is the species most often encountered. Eight inch long leaflets are arranged in rows along the 10′ length of bright green pinnate leaves. Composed of 15 – 20 leaves, the canopy sits atop the crown shaft – a smooth, glossy extension of the trunk composed of the overlapping bases of the leaves. ::The trunk of the Cuban Royal Palm is swollen at the base. It constricts about halfway up and then bulges again just below the crownshaft creating a dramatic profile. The trunks of are a smooth light gray that looks as if it had been cast from concrete. The Cuban Royal Palm produce a large 3′ to 4′ inflorescense on which both male and female flowers are borne.

Bigger, Thicker, and Less Fiery Hot! A great “compromise” Jalapeno for folks who love that flavor but can’t take the super-hot bite! 68 days. At last, a Jalapeno that satisfies your craving for hot, pungent spice without burning out the roof of your mouth! Mucho Nacho is a big, fat, heavy pepper with less heat and more meat (robust, thick-walled flesh) than Jalapeno M. If your family loves Mexican food but one or more members can’t take extreme spiciness, this is the Jalapeno you’ve got to try!These 4-inch peppers are much weightier than other Jalapenos, with thick walls, a good crisp and juicy bite, and firm skin. You can stuff them without worrying about their collapse, and they’re terrific for pickling, giving you a few extra slices from every fruit! But my favorite way to eat them is fresh from the 20- to 30-inch vine, minced into salsa and sliced on top of nachos. You can really taste the garden-fresh bite of this delicious Jalapeno!Start seeds indoors or, in climate with short growing seasons, outdoors
Light: Excellent in the sun :Cut Flower: Yes :Bulb Size: 16-18 cm ::NEW! White petals with red stripes and maroon spots. ::The regal splendor of Oriental lilies gives the crowning touch to your summer garden. They carry your garden through the hot summer into balmy autumn with their magnificent blooms, which are at least 6″ across. The tall varieties lend an airy elegance when spotted through the back of the border. All are unsurpassed for cutting, having a very long vase life. The flamboyant flowers, with their gracefully recurved petals, are delightfully fragrant during the day, but their perfume is postively heady at night. They are very long lived in the garden and will multiply over the years. Taller varieties need staking. They prefer lots of sun on their tops and some shade at their feet, a problem easily solved by planting them among shorter perennials.
Huge Yields of Yummy Fruity-Hot Peppers! Just 4 plants will feed a family all season! 66 days from setting out transplants. This 2006 All-America Selection is absolutely the best all-around fruity-hot chile Pepper I’ve ever tasted. The plants are vigorous and very heavy-yielding, beginning earlier in the season than most others, and the handsome yellow-to-red fruits are scruptious raw or cooked!The AAS judges’ criteria for awarding Mariachi top honors were its superior fruit size (tapering from 2 inches across at the shoulders to 4 inches long, with a soft point), early maturity (7 to 10 days sooner than comparable varieties), huge yields (2 to 4 plants will probably keep your family fed all season, and a single packet of seeds will add enough extra peppers for plenty of canning, drying, and sharing with friends!), lower pungency (Mariachi measures just 500 to 600 on the Scoville “hotness” scale), and superb flavor (the heat has a rich, fruity underbite with hints of melon). This is an absolutely first-rate p

This gorgeous and tasty asparagus has taken Europe by storm! This is the creme de la creme of the gourmet asparagus world. Chefs say this is the best tasting asparagus to be found on any continent. The purple spears should be picked when young, 6-8 inches tall while buds are still tight. Female spears tend to be thinner (pencil thickness) and not quite as tender as the slightly more robust males which are best when 1/2 inch thick.. The foliage of this perennial vegetable will grow 4-6 feet . When planting, space the roots in 18 inches apart in the garden after chance of heavy frost. When cooked, the sweet tender spears turn green. ::Roots received before planting time may be packed in moist soil or sand and stored in a cool place until ready to plant. ::PLANT roots as early in spring as soil can be worked. Choose a sunny location with rich, well-drained soil. When selecting a site, keep in mind that asparagus is a perennial vegetable; a planting should not be disturbed. Dig trenches 6-8″ deep and 12-15″ wide. Set roots in bottom of trench, spacing crowns (center) 15-18″ apart in the row. Spread roots out as far as possible, and cover with 3-4″ of fine soil. Fill trenches in as shoots grow. Space rows 2 1/2 – 4′ apart. ::CULTIVATE OR MULCH to control weeds. Fertilize at least once during growingseason, and water well during dry spells. IN LATE FALL, cut tips down to ground level when they have turned brown.Do not cut spears heavily until the third year.
Drosera filiformis ‘Tracyi’ (Giant Thread Leaf Sundew) ::The tiny paddle-like hairy leaves are covered with drops of sticky goo, which trap insects that are attracted to the plant. In summer the sundews are topped with thin spikes holding small pink flowers. Sundews are winter hardy in most of the southeastern US, in cooler regions they can be grown in pots and terrariums as a house plant. ::Drosera filiformis occurs naturally in both Canada and the United States; it’s natural range extends down the eastern seaboard of North America from south western Nova Scotia in the north down through New England to Florida and Louisiana in the south. ::The 12-20 inch leaves are erect, filiform and covered with short, pale green, transparent hairs that exude a sticky fluid that aids in the capture and absorption of small insects. The leaves dry up and die back during the winter. Winter buds called hibernacula form, and with the return of proper growing conditions new growth arises in the spring. ::Wet all of the time
