When to Dig up Outside Plants
  • I think outside roses should be dig once in a week by which nitrogen can enter the plant.
  • I'm not sure about the peonies. I've never heard of anybody digging them up. The roses should be cut back and then you buy covers for them from most hardware stores or garden centers. Also you can dig a trench down along the roots and then out away from the plant. Then bend the plant down and bury it. Make sure you dig deep enough beside roots so you don't break them. Then cover with dirt and mulch. I've done this and it works. When it warms up in spring just uncover and stand back up and pack dirt back around the roots.
  • Its always best to dig them up in the spring of the year before they start growing, I have done it a million times. You can divide the peonies into 2, and that way you will have more plants.
  • Most perennials (plants that come back each year) can be moved safely while they are dormant, which is during winter and very early spring before they grow their new leaves and flowers. Peonies, specifically, do not like to be disturbed. If you divide or move them, they will sulk for a few years (no kidding).
  • You can dig up roses when they are dormant (have no leaves). Cut them back and replant them with fresh compost. Water them in well. There is always a risk when transplanting. If plants are very old they won't transplant very well.

Lady Bugs are good insects. If you have roses they will eat the tiny aphids that get on your plants. They are also valuable on tomato and other plants. They do not eat the leaves of the plants they eat only the bugs.

Tomatoes need a lot of sun so indoors won't work well for them.

photosynthesis can take place in the plants for which good amounts of raw materials are supplied (for example raw materials like sunlight, oxygen etc.,). when these raw materials are provided photosynthesis (or starch preparation using raw materials) can take place. as these conditions are provided outdoor photosynthesis can favorably take place in outdoor plants.

Some good "get well soon" flowers include daisies, peonies, and hydrangeas. Daisies stay in bloom even after the patient gets better, peonies are the symbol of healing, and hydrangeas represent perseverance.

Yes. But keep them by a window and make sure they have a good size pot for roots. Make sure to water them! Good Luck!

It is a good idea to deadhead spent flowers of a peony. Compost the spent flower.

because they are used to the close, low light conditions that are normally found indoors (when compaired to outdoor plants).

Clean air is not good for roses because the roses get 'black spot fungus' that can easily survive and grow- due to the clean air- this black spot fungus kills the roses.

"Stopping to smell the roses," the gerund phrase, is acting as the subject of the sentence. WHAT is good advice? Stopping to smell the roses is good advice.

Roses are among the most difficult plants to grow and you many want to start with something easier. To successfully grow roses, you need good soil with appropriate amounts of sand, peat moss. You may also need to add nitrogen, phosphate and other fertilizers.

Outdoor furniture is expensive so $500 is a good deal for a set if its good quality. Wal Mart does have cheap outdoor sets but they're not that great of quality.

Salt will certainly do the plants no good at all and may kill some of the more delicate plants. I am baffled as to why on earth anyone would wish to add salt (a polutant) to a fresh water pond.

Yes it is, but not as good as cedar.

There are many plants that have special structure to protect themselves from human and other animals. A good example is the poisonous ivy which produces urushiol and roses that have thorns for protection.
