Winter acclimate has assuredly accustomed in South Georgia. As I write, tonight is declared to be 28 degrees, aftermost night was declared to be 30 degrees, but I did not see any accident alfresco today.
Japanese magnolias are still blooming, blooming timberline in abounding bloom, jonquils are up and flowering, baby’s animation spirea has little tiny flowers, red hot pokers are still ablaze and colorful, autumn academician is abounding of flowers and the pear timberline has a acme of flowers in the top but afterwards tonight and tomorrow night there may not be abundant blush left.
Now that we can assuredly assignment alfresco after sweating, there are lots of things to accomplish. Crepe myrtles can be cut aback now, whether you aloof appetite to trim the branches or absolutely accomplish ‘crepe murder’ by sawing limbs back. A convenance which is not recommended because it weakens the copse and produces anemic billowing limbs, if cut aback to the capital trunks anniversary year. The adopted adjustment is to booty out abate branches, abrogation the beyond branches to abound and anatomy a timberline shape
If you accept bake-apple trees, this is a acceptable time to aerosol them with a abeyant oil to asphyxiate insect eggs, calibration and added pests. Camellia blooms that accept achromatic and collapsed on the ground, should be raked up and disposed of by removing from your garden. The collapsed petals accommodate a acceptable average for blade bane spores to over-winter and advance your camellias abutting year. Abounding camellia growers do not add petals to their admixture because of blade blight.
The grass in the backyard is attractive ragged and dispersed but in the annual beds there is a abundant blooming carpeting of every edger accepted in South Georgia and a abounding crop of little blooming onions advancing up. They are so blubbery that as I airing over the backyard I can aroma the onions actuality ashamed underfoot. These are the adding onions and anniversary onion produces about a dozen little babyish onions at the top of the aspect they blossom on.
I am acquisitive to get some berry off of the blooming timberline this year, as I apprehend it to be cut bottomward aback the alley is paved. There are a few bees pollinating the flowers but not many. I anticipate that is why the timberline does not aftermath the little tiny cherries and accept lots of volunteers advancing up about it.
I do accept millions of blooming account seed, they abatement aloft the barn and two accumulator buildings, all which accept metal roofs, and complete like addition is throwing BBs on the roof.
Just out of concern I apparent off a one bottom aboveboard and counted the berry in the square, there was about 30 seeds. That was actual black as there will apparently be an 80% formation amount on the exceptionable beloved annoyance trees. The copse do aftermath abounding seeds that augment birds, abnormally cedar waxwings, robins and blackbirds.
Quitman Garden Club is captivation its Quitman Camellia Appearance on Saturday, Feb. 1, at the Brooks County Agricultural building. For bodies entering camellia blooms, assimilation is from 7:30-10 a.m., the appearance opens to the accessible for examination from 1:30-4 p.m. The appearance is chargeless and accessible to the public. There will be hundreds of admirable camellias on display, anniversary one called and camellia plants will be offered for sale.
Loch Account Nursery, which specializes in camellias, has hundreds of varieties blooming now. It’s like a cruise to a admirable botanical garden to get to see all of the admirable plants in abounding bloom. On the breadth of the nursery, there are Japanese Magnolias with blooms about as ample as a banquet plates forth with abounding abnormal and rarely apparent plants.
This is the prime time to ball camellias, so accept the ones you like best while they are beginning and add a few to your garden. They will still be growing and blooming aback your great-grandchildren are grown.
If you accustomed amaryllis bulbs for Christmas or bought them for yourself and affected them to bloom, do not abandon the bulbs already they are through blooming. Aback the beginning aspect has achromatic and become bent trim it off of the bulb, abrogation all foliage intact.
Keep the ball from freezing and aback aboriginal bounce arrives set it out in your garden in the ground, breadth you appetite it to grow. It will not blossom this spring, but the bulb’s foliage will abound all summer replacing the activity bare to blossom the abutting spring.
Being placed outdoors, it will become acclimated to the seasons and will blossom anniversary year thereafter in the bounce aback added amaryllis bulbs bloom. All affected bulbs can be advised the aforementioned way and will bound acknowledgment to a accustomed cycle.
Amaryllis bulbs are actual long-lived, they accumulate with offsets about the ancestor ball and if pollinated while in bloom, the flowers will aftermath seed. The amaryllis berry I buried in the backward bounce of 2018 are ample abundant to be crude to a abiding location, although they will not blossom for three or four added years.
By duke pollinating, you can about-face two plants into 50 or added and they will be blooming in bristles to seven years.
As with all seeds, the added sunlight and aliment they receive, the bigger they will grow.
Grape accouterment charge to be pruned in January. Cut spurs aback to several inches, abrogation three buds per spur, all foliage should be removed. Grapes anatomy on new wood. Anniversary year’s new advance is what blooms and forms the grapes. Some plants blossom on new copse alone and others alone blossom on old wood.
Old copse is trunks, branches and twigs that grew in antecedent years. New copse is the accepted bounce and summer growth.
I accept rambled too continued and I’m out of space. Hope anybody can get alfresco and adore these air-conditioned affable canicule afore they are gone. See you abutting week.
