Another Saturday and more gardening reading to give you ideas for your garden this weekend. Today we learn about Rosemary its medicinal uses, a gardener talks about plant collections in her blog, we introduce you to Star Magnolias, and bring you a list with free and commercial apps for smartphones and give you some tips for choosing fresh cut flowers.
In the article you will learn about rosemary and its medicinal uses. Rosemary is a mediterranean plant and it appears that it was only brought to England in the fourteenth century. After it’s introduction to England it’s fair to guess that later on it was introduced to Ireland. From the XIV century onwards it appears in different treatises with instructions about how to grow it and its medicinal uses.
In this blog entry Erin, from The Impatient Gardener, talks about how she started her plant collection, the plants she chose, and her motivations for it. This might be a very interesting reading for all those gardening addicts out there that stare and inspect the seeds and plants sections in Tesco and other shops around the city with completely “hypnotized”.
Star Magnolias flower in winter, but keep a very dense and continues to have leaves during summer. As the weather changes through the year the colours in the tree will change making them a great help for all those gardeners that love having changing colours in their gardens and want to have flowering garden in winter.
You love gardening and you have a smartphone, then this is the article for you. A list with several apps, some commercial and some free, for all types of smartphones: iPhone, Android and Windows phones. No matter what kind of smartphone you have you would find something here for you.
And finally a small article with some tips for choosing fresh cut flowers. If you prefer to have some cut flowers around the house instead of having a garden or just simply because you don’t have a garden, this is a good article to get the best value for your money.
