With autumn settling in and nature settling down, the time for planting trees and shrubs has finally arrived. Cooler days and more frequent rains remove the stress that summer plantings may experience and they give us more time away from the watering hose. Autumn takes care of the plants so you can take care of everything else. To get started on your fall planting, give us a call at 314-890-9492 or fill out the Consultation Request form on our website. . . . #landscapearchitecture #landscape #landscapedesign #landscaper #gardendesign #garden #landscaping #landscapedesigner #landscapeconstruction #landscapersofinstagram #outdoorliving #landscapers #Stlouislandscaper #stllandscaper #landscapelifestyle #backyardgoals #horticulture #mastergardener #freshstartoutdoors

This is how I start all my sweet potato slips for my summer garden. First, I determine how much sweet potatoes I'm actually trying to grow. Then, I head to Whole Foods and buy a few different varieties of sweet potatoes and then the process begins. I usually cut them in half (but leaving them whole as shown is another option) and then suspend them in water. Around 2-3 weeks later I have slips have reached around 6" or longer. That’s when the slips are ready to be cut from the sweet potato and ready to go in the ground. You will plant the slips that you cut in the ground (not the entire slip) plant about 2-3 inches in the soil. Depending on how many pounds I am trying to grow determines whether or not I repeat this process. 3-4 months later Its time to harvest. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• . . . . . . . #UrbanGardenCoach #GardenCoach #MasterGardener #GardenActivist #Houston #Zone9A #UrbanOrganicGardener #CityGarden #EatWhatYouGrow #GrowOrganic #Growing #KitchenGarden #EpicGardening #GetGrowing #HoustonTxBlack #GrowFoodNotLawns #GrowingFood #EdibleGarden #GrowYourGarden #TheHappyGardeningLife #GardenGoodies #GrowItYourself #GardenLife #Planting #GardenBeds #GrowSomethingGreen #OrganicGardening #GrowYourOwnFood #TexasGarden #SweetPotatoes
We left hunger in the dust! 🏃 Just finished the @feedingsouthflorida Outrun Hunger 5k in 3rd place for my age group. We are going to outrun hunger any way we can, on the race track and in the garden! We will win this race. Many of you may not know, I went through a period in my life where I experienced a lack of abundance. Many days I did not have money to eat. The struggle was very real, it's hard to admit what I had to resort to, eating only one McDouble on the dollar menu a day, if I was lucky. I see why so many Americans eat fast food when a 600 calorie cheese burger is $1 and an organic apple is $1.50. There is something wrong with that 🤔. And unfortunately, it keeps the poorest among us down. We are working relentlessly to change that. Patiently and persistently, we will make a difference. So, needless to say, this is a cause very near and dear to my heart 💓. Now I am blessed enough to eat fresh, organic food from my own gardens, way more nutrient dense than a McDouble, I can tell you that. I pass no judgement on those eating fast food, because I was there. Fast food may taste good to you, but I promise, it is making you sick. In case you are unaware, there is a health crises in this country because of these issues. It is possible to break this cycle, and we are going to do it. I want to share the fresh organic goodness I have found with you all! So thank you @feedingsouthflorida , @feedingamerica and @tonyrobbins for your wonderful mission. Thank you to all the volunteers that make it possible. Thank you to all the supporters of this cause. Thank you to all the farmers all over the world 🌎, the truck drivers, the people at the grocery stores and restaurants. Thank you to all the chefs, amateur and professional that feed us every day. I don't take it for granted. Much gratitude to you all 🙏 If you're eager to get your own garden started, now is the time. Come out to our super special edible plant sale today in West Palm Beach, and we will hook you up! DM for directions. 🖖✌

The soft, morning light as captured on this Sedeveria 'Letizia', a hybrid of sedum and echeveia.

I made all of these drinks with a watermelon that I grew 🍉👨🏾‍🌾 1️⃣. Watermelon Thai basil smash- muddle basil & fresh watermelon in shaker. Add ice, spirit, & sweetener. Shake & strain into glass filled with ice. Garnish with more watermelon & basil 2️⃣. Watermelon, pineapple, & ginger juice- just juice all the fruit & enjoy 3️⃣. Watermelon & lime infused water- add pieces of watermelon (muddle) & lime then pour in water 4️⃣. Watermelon & mint lemonade- muddle mint & watermelon, then squeeze juice of 1 lemon, add sweetener & water then stir. Garnish with more watermelon & mint... this one would also taste good with a spirit of your choice. Any other suggestions? . . . . . . . #UrbanGardenCoach #GardenCoach #MasterGardener #Houston #Zone9A #UrbanOrganicGardener #GardenGram #IGDrinks #GetGrowing #DrinkPic #DrinkGram #DrinkHealthy #EpicGardening #FarmToTable #HealthyDrinks #Instadrink #DrinkUp #FreshJuice #HealthyJuice #HealthyRecipes #Juicing #Watermelon #Cocktails #Lemonade #Herbs #Drinks #InfusedWater #Spirits #Fresh #SummerDrinks
Early fall is the perfect time to divide or move perennials. The reasons for dividing are endless. Many perennials grow quickly, forming large clumps. If you don't divide them every three to four years, these clumps can die out in the middle, leaving a bare hole. Overcrowding these perennials can lead to fewer and/or smaller flowers than their well-spaced and divided counterparts—division keeps the blooms bountiful. Dividing vigorous plants will help keep them from overwhelming their neighbors. Dividing also leaves you with more plants of the same variety—perfect for adding to other places in the garden or trading with friends, family, or neighbors. Be sure to do this before their foliage dies back for the winter. #homeimprovementtips #yardmaintenance #wallawallacpas #gardening #betterhomesandgardens #sunsetmagazine #mastergardener #divingplants #propigation #yardwork #fallyardcare

One of the drawbacks to flying is that I couldn’t take all the “carl” roses home with me! Or the wagon loads of plants I wanted from the plant sale! Thank you to the Saint Tammany Master Gardener Association for having me your speaker today! My time was all too short - however this quick trip gives me an excuse to come back! And eat, shop and tour your fantastic homes and gardens on the North Shore. This Farmer Gardener felt right at home! The @southernhotel was simply marvelous!!! And dinner @oxlot9 beyond fab!

Diane's Plant of the Week!!! Andropogon gerardii (aka Big Blue Stem) Big Blue Stem is a species of grass within the tall grass prairie. It may be grown as an ornamental grass because of its attractive foliage, which changes color seasonally, its good architectural height and its interesting flower/seed heads. #mastergardener #landscape #landscapearchitecture #plants #horticulture #dallas #grasses #prairie

This is the first year my hot banana peppers didn’t produce high yields, as they were covered by cucumbers vines. I found this lone hot banana pepper behind the cayenne peppers. I’ll be pulling my peppers from this bed soon, adding compost, then planting cold weather crops. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• . . . . . . . #UrbanGardenCoach #GardenCoach #MasterGardener #GardenActivist #Houston #Zone9A #UrbanOrganicGardener #CityGarden #EatWhatYouGrow #GrowOrganic #Growing #KitchenGarden #EpicGardening #GetGrowing #HoustonTxBlack #GrowFoodNotLawns #GrowFromSeed #GrowingFood #EdibleGarden #TheHappyGardeningLife #GardenGoodies #GrowItYourself #GardenLife #Planting #GardenBeds #GrowSomethingGreen #OrganicGardening #GrowYourOwnFood #SweetPeppers #Peppers

@MUExtension #KansasCity #MasterGardener Janet Day gives great tips about preserving and extending the garden harvest @HarvestersORG @MUExtensionKC
When our son was an infant, he took such long naps that I had to find something to do with my time. Just after I completed my first Master Gardener Course, which was a Virginia Tech sponsored program, I decided to build a beautiful garden with my husband. Our property had been an old daffodil plantation back in the day. Deep in a thicket on our property was the foundation of an old barn. It was overgrown with Ivy and daffodils and would soon be lost to the earth. I decided to salvage all of the old bricks and stone and created this pathway to our garden. I dug out and broke every piece of stone, hauled it and created this mosaic walkway. It was extremely hard work but so worth it to have a beautiful space to play and garden with our kids. You can check out more photos of it in my stories. Growing up secret garden was one of my favorite films. I have always enjoyed creating beautiful outdoor spaces. It makes me feel alive!👩🏼‍🌾🌿💚 What makes you feel alive? . . . #grow #farmer #mastergardener #hawaiimastergardener #virginiamastergardener #mastergardenersofinstagram #landscape #landscapedesign #botanicals #plants #trees

Today's Master Gardener training took this Husker girl smack dab in the middle of Jack Trice Stadium to learn about turfgrass...fascinating, the science behind what goes into keeping this in pristine condition. I could easily become a grass nerd! #mastergardener #jacktricestadium #turfgrassscience #grassnerdintraining
Here is another way to grow your own celery. Check out my last post to see how to regrow celery in a bowl of water. I decided to repost my own video to show another method to grow celery.
