Default Re: What did you plant today (other plants)?

Tally Man . . . Great idea. I just thought of this myself, then when I got to the top here, I saw that you already started ! What did I plant today, or: A day in the life of a plant nut !

I grow plants for the retail trade. No matter how many hundreds of plants I may be potting, I mix the soil for each specie seperately by hand. Today I'm potting starters of Allamanda dwarf (small green leaves on low bushy plants with Canary yellow flowers) (known in Puerto Rico as "Canario").

Into the mixing tray (an old wheel barrel without legs) mounted on a table at waists height. In goes half a bag of Natural Cypress Mulch. I pick out big sticks and chunks. In goes a 2 gallon nursery pot of river sand. I mix this well (by hand) and then about a 3 gallon pot full of previously broken up Canadian Peat. Mix again. My paid helper, or more often my free help (the wife) fills 4" pots into 10" x 20" trays.

We place previously grown plants on a table next to trays of newly filled pots. With a pair of clippers, I cut short 3" new groth cuttings, trim a few lower leaves and stick in a pre-poked hole two cuttings per pot. The trays of new cuttings go to another table to be watered and then placed in a location under a sprinkler in morning sun. ( Shade in Summer, morning Sun in Winter). In one week these cuttings are dependably rooted. Now they get a drenching of "Blue water", 3 tablespoons of Peters 20-20-20 per 2 gallon sprinkler can. It will take 5 to 8 weeks to be ready to sell.

Today, we completed 300 4" pots of "Canario" If I had not taken so many "coffee breaks" we may have done 400 !

Tomorrow we will divide and pot up Heliconia "Jamaican dwarf" which might be a bit more exciting ?

Business might be a bit monotonous, but its nice being your own boss. I cannot think of anything els I would rather due day after day than working with plants.

Where do you have the room for all this stuff?

Can we go 'outside' for a second and talk exterior plants?

mskitty you might be a little surprised to find out that I'm one of the few folks up here brave enough to successfully grow and transplant one of the trees that are fairly common in your neck of the woods- Mimosas!

My father had an addiction to mimosas when we used to go canoeing in TN and NC back in the 70's, and he (I'm sure) illegally brought a few back one year to plant at our farm.
The only time we had problems at all was the bad winter of '76 and the blizzard of '77, but they did come back eventually, sometimes not until JULY!
Who knows! If 'global warming' is really happening (which I believe it is NOT man-made)
I'll then be READY up here with both Nanas AND Mimosas!

Are you kidding?
You've got lots more mimosas down there than I do!

F.Y.I. -We drove to Hilton Head SC in June of this year and I told my wife that I'd like to get another 'variety' of mimosa from a nursery somewhere down there, just to 'diversify' what I have in our own yard a little.

(I also have 15 mimosas growing that I will use in landscaping projects in the area in the future)

So I found a nursery called 'The Greenery' on the way back in Bluffton that had a different type of mimosa. The thing was that it was 7 feet tall and I had to trim it down to fit it in to our Saturn Vue!
( The kids in the back seat were P.O. ed!)

So...addictions can indeed go beyond nanas!

g'night!

Today I planted 32 5" pots of cuttings to root of Confederate Jasmine. (trachylospermum jasminoides). I hope to introduce it to the garden centers of Puerto Rico since no one here knows the plant.

This is where I usually check in after loging in, so I thought I might ask if anyone has Gardenia radicans "Variegata". I am desperate for cutting material or rooted plants. I will trade my first born child or anything on my web-site: w. plantcollectors. net . . . Logos
