Ask the Reader: What is Your Favorite Plant?

.

We're going to change Tuesday's topic here at Mule Shoe Farm. We've had enough of writing about invasives and weeds gone wild. How many time can you say, "cut it off, dig it up, attack it in the late spring and it doesn't belong here"?


The new Tuesday topic will be Plants We Love to See More Of.


So I am asking you, dear readers, Please tell me what plants you would like to see more of. What are your favorite flowers, vegetables, shrubs, low-maintenance houseplants, etc.


Send an email to apouliot@gmail.com to make a suggestion.Your suggestions will be posted here with a suitable photo. If you have any photos that you would like to see on the web, send those in the email and we'll post them. One per week. On Tuesdays.


If you have any growing tips, cuttings or anything else that you want to make sure I mention, include that too. You can also post a comment below. Anonymously if you wish.


No, you don't have to write the article, just post your ideas.


Special Note

Since January is almost upon us, many gardeners are thinking of what they would like to start inside in January/February. I will have an assortment of plastic pots and starter flats in many different sizes with me this Saturday. If you post an idea in the comments below or send me an email about your favorite plant, you may choose your free flats or pots on Saturday.

My favorite:

Flower: rose

Vegetables: potato, pumpkin, cucumber

Fruits: pear, watermelon, banana, mango, letchis

Houseplant: lucky bamboo (I'm still looking for one)

That would be all for the time being. Have a nice holiday.

Thank you for your comments. I think I will start with the potato and go on from there.
