Gardening in America
July  12,  2006, Yard and Landscape

by Nancy Fletcher

Under the arbor is where I keep my houseplants. In the fall we load these up on the dolly and move to the back porch.

Close up of the Crepe Myrtle.  I noticed in some of the nicer homes these bushes had the stalks on the bottom trimmed of branches. I had no idea why so thought I would experiment. The results seem to be a more prolific blooming.

This is the second blooming for the Weigelia. If the old blooms are cut off then later on the bushes will bloom a second time. This was taken before the cedar trees were trimmed.
