Home of Stella's Gardens

We are now living full time in Northeast Iowa, and working on the new gardens. It will keep us busy for quite a while...

As an avid gardener since I was about 7 years old, that gives me over 45 years of experience gardening in this part of the world. And every year teaches me a bit more.

Also, working on a new website at stellasgardens - dot - com. Feel free to check it out and comment!

Orchid success!

Happy to report, my orchid is blooming again! Bllra. Big Shot 'Hilo Sparkle' which my son and DIL gave me two Xmases ago. I repotted it at one point, it didn't do much that year, but this year there is one nice stem. Unfortunately I'm still not keeping it quite damp enough, apparently, as indicated by some accordion pleated leaves. But it's put on a pretty good slug of new growth, from 3 bulblets up to 8....


 

The unnamed phal from the supermarket is sending up a spike, too, so looking forward to seeing that in a few weeks/months....
