Little Henry

Rudbeckia 'Little Henry'

I would love to try this.  We have 'Henry Eilers' and it gets floppy.

Bti

Interesting review of Bti.

I continue to use it in the garden pool, not sure how beneficial it is because there are so many other factors to consider.

For example, the bats I see darting overhead at dusk might have a significant effect on mosquito populations.

Pineberry

Would be fun to grow these as ornamental edibles mixed into the perennial beds.

Lime Rickey

We saw some spectacular hydrangeas in the parking lot at Metcalfe's today, and they looked very much like this cultivar.

Roman Chamomile

We currently have none in the garden, so maybe I should try again.

Ruby Sorrel

We have a couple in the garden, but maybe I should plant a few seeds to augment the population.
