Her gardening advice is wrong, wrong, wrong for Houston. So, although her declaration that she would be out of prison in time to plant her spring garden showed me that she is a real gardener and doesn't just play one on TV, it is too late for us to PLANT a spring garden. That does not mean that we cannot BUY a flower- filled, absolutely gorgeous spring garden. Nurseries all across the area have a mix of cool-weather and hot-weather bloomers now. The cool-weather bloomers - spring garden to Martha - are in full bloom. Annuals such as petunias, snapdragons, stock, alyssum and primroses will probably not thrive past the beginning of June. Some references, even local ones, list marigolds as hot- weather plants, but they really are happier in cooler weather. Annuals complete their life cycle - from seed to bloom to seed - in one growing season. Unless they reseed, they will not be back next year. Since there's not a lot of time for these plants to grow, buy big ones. Look for ones that have open flowers and lots of buds. Perennials bloom for a short time once a year, then, with the right conditions, good care and luck, they bloom again in the following years. The conditions that cause problems for perennials are our summer heat and/or our lack of cold. Some plants just need cold dormancy to bloom. Fuchsias, for example, don't make it through the summer; no matter how hard you try Enjoy one, then send it to a friend who lives in a cool, moist climate. Geraniums will stop blooming in the summer, but if you keep them in the shade and move them back to the sun when it cools down, they might bloom again. It does not get cold enough here for ft MORE INFO Garden and Yard Club 713-661-6378 or 713-863-1066 Urban Harvest www.urbanharvest.org Texas Extension Service texasextension.tamu.edu/ag_nr.html tulips to bloom again, but amaryllis and some kinds of daffodils and lilies will come back. MOST BUSHES THAT ARE FLOWERING now will not flower again this year. To avoid transplant shock, which causes the flowers to fall off, dig a hole and put the pot in the hole. As soon as the flowers fade, take the plant out of the pot and plant it properly Some gardeners I know recommend cutting off the bottom of the pot, slitting the side half-way-up, then putting the pot in the hole. After filling the hole half way with dirt, cut the rest of the way up the side and remove the pot. I am certain I would hurt myself, so I have never k tried it and do not know if it works. ^ It is not too late to plant seeds for summer-flowering annuals. Cosmos, zinnias, celosia and sunflowers are really easy to grow from seed. Others, such as periwinkles and begonias are tricky, but are available now in small pots. The plants will get big soon enough if you feed and water them regularly You may plant gladiola, dahlia, ginger and caladium bulbs (or tubers) now. Gingers and caladiums prefer shade. Many vegetables and herbs are decorative and edible. Lettuces do not like hot weather, so buy plants. Tomatoes set fruit when nighttime temperatures are below 70 degrees, so grab some of the already potted plants of many varieties are available now. I bought one that has flowers already Peppers and okra are easy to grow from seed, as are melons, cucumbers and summer squash. They are so easy to grow, be prepared to deal with lots of whatever it is you are growing. There are varieties of watermelon that produce small fruit, but the plant is still big. Vegetables and herbs require a lot of sun. The first rule of successful gardening is "chose the right plant for the right place." Add, "plant it at the right time" and most of the battle is won. There is plenty of help for novices. Any good gardener in your neighborhood will be glad to give you advice, and the lesbian and gay gardening club (Garden and Yard Society) meets the second Friday of each month. Urban Harvest hosts classes and gives great advice about gardening here. Books are full of gardening inform- tion, but use a local one. When Martha starts her show up again, turn the TV off when she talks about gardening.
