Cool weather flower

first_imgIt’s always discouraging to spend time selecting flowers,preparing soil and doing the best job of planting that you knowhow, only to see the flowers die or just not grow well. If youdon’t have a natural “green thumb,” pansies are almost foolproof. Give them a try. I bet you’ll like what you see. By Jim CrawfordUniversity of GeorgiaAmong all the flowers in our Southern gardens, one of the mostpopular, if not the most popular, is the pansy. I’m very fond of them because of the unique patterns and reallybright colors. They come in just about every shade from yellowto, oddly enough, black. I particularly like the yellow ones withthe “faces,” while my wife likes the violet shades. Plant alone or in bunchesPansies have many applications in the landscape as drifts ofsingle color or as massed planting of mixed colors. My wife and Iused them in masses across our front flower bed when we wereselling our house. If you watch the real estate shows on television, you know thatthey advise you to have a pretty “street appearance” when you’retrying to sell a home. I can’t say that the flowers turned thetrick, but the house did sell so fast we had to hustle up ourmoving plans. Another great thing about pansies is you can plant them in tinyor large spaces. Pansies are attractive planted under evergreens,around trees, around the mailbox, in window boxes or in planters.Multiseasonal bloomersNot only do pansies come in a wide assortment of bright andgorgeously mixed colors, they bloom in the garden up to sixmonths during the fall, winter and spring. Few other annuals canmake that claim.Pansies do best when the night temperatures are below 65 degreesand can withstand temperature as low as 2 degrees. The time toplant pansies is when the heat finally tapers off. Pansies come in a variety of sizes. Generally, pansies withsmaller flowers tolerate heat and adverse growing conditionsbetter than the large-flowered types. Some varieties that growwell in Georgia are Springtime Yellow Blotch, Universal PlusYellow Blotch, Happy White Face and Imperial Pink Shades. Now,who couldn’t like a flower that has a catchy name like that andproduces eye-catching splashes of color all winter? Prepare the soilPansies love to grow in full sun, but they will also grow andflower in partial shade better than other annuals. They willperform very well if you’ll do a good job of preparing the soil.Choose a well-drained location and work organic matter such asgarden compost, peat moss, commercially composted manure, pottingsoil orwell-rotted leaves into about the top 4 to 6 inches of dirt usinga shovel, tiller or hand trowel. It would be a good idea to get your soil sampled so you’d havelime and fertilizer instructions. However, since pansies like alow pH and that describes most of our soils, you could just amendthe soil and plant. Pansies don’t have a high requirement for fertilizer. One and ahalf pounds of bone meal per 25 square feet is helpful. You canuse either a slow-release fertilizer or 1.5 pounds of 10-10-10fertilizer per 100 square feet.Prepare the soil, hand-packPansies should be planted in beds about the same level they weregrowing in the packs or just slightly higher. Spacing is a matterof personal preference, but I suggest planting them about 6inches apart. After planting, don’t forget to lightly water and hand-pack thesoil around the plants. This ensures the soil is in good contactwith the roots and the stems are supported so they stand up. And itallows the soil to retain the moisture longer, giving the plants abetter chance for survival.Next, place a couple of inches of mulch around the plants. Soilmoisture should be monitored for the first three weeks until theplants have established good root systems.last_img read more

Hogg gets Glasgow over the line

first_img Press Association Glasgow gained revenge for defeat in last season’s play-offs with a 22-20 Guinness PRO12 win over Leinster at Scotstoun Stadium on Saturday. The game got under way with probably the quickest replacement of the season, in just 42 seconds. The unfortunate man was Leinster centre Noel Reid who went down under a tackle with a leg injury, to be subbed by Ian Madigan. Glasgow centre Mark Bennett missed a long penalty in the ninth minute but the hosts looked the most adventurous in the early exchanges and this approach brought the opening try in the 17th minute, through stand-off Horne. The move came following a disrupted Leinster scrum, with Bennett and Pyrgos involved before left winger Tommy Seymour offloaded in the tackle for Horne to score, which Pyrgos then converted. Gopperth then missed a straightforward penalty for the visitors and soon after dropped a simple pass. From the scrum, in the 25th minute, Glasgow sparkled before Gray was heaved over from short range with Pyrgos unable to convert. Six minutes later the third Glasgow try was dotted down, by Strauss who broke a tackle 30 metres out and ran in for Pyrgos to convert. Madigan got Leinster on the board with a penalty in the 33rd minute but the half ended with Strauss held up on the visitors’ line and Pyrgos unable to convert the subsequent penalty. Despite coming close from the restart Glasgow could not get the bonus-point try and Leinster’s first attack of the second half, in the 51st minute, ended with Gopperth kicking a penalty. Glasgow dominated the first half and their sparkling handling was rewarded with tries from Peter Horne, Jonny Gray and Josh Strauss, with Henry Pyrgos converting two. They came very close to getting a bonus-point try but it proved elusive as Leinster gradually came into game. Jimmy Gopperth added a penalty to one in the first half from Ian Maddigan for the visitors. Then in a two-minute period Leinster scored tries through Jack McGrath and Tom Denton. With Gopperth converting both, Leinster led 20-19 with four minutes left, but Glasgow’s blushes were spared by a penalty from replacement Stuart Hogg well after the 80 minutes had registered. Glasgow’s backline was disrupted with the loss through injury of both Horne and centre Alex Dunbar, with Hogg and Sean Lamont coming on. As the 70th minute approached Leinster established themselves around the home 22 and in a two-minute period scored two tries to take the lead. First, the pack got over from a line-out with McGrath credited. Then another pack replacement Denton got hold of the ball at a line-out and dived over. Gopperth converted both scores. Glasgow responded by going to the Leinster line where immense pressure was finished off by a penalty kicked by Hogg to win the game. last_img read more
