Growing with the Times: How Local Plant and Garden Companies Adapt to ChangeTuesday, July 03, 2018
A few have been doing so for more than a century.
“It was like we went straight from winter to summer,” said Janna Pemberton Schmidt, who runs Pemberton Greenhouses with her siblings, Ashley Pemberton Herndon and Colin Pemberton, and her husband, Jeff Schmidt. “It’s been a strong but fast year, because of the late freeze.”
The plastic-covered greenhouses at Pemberton, located off Georgetown Road, are loaded with cascading hanging baskets and long rows of bright geraniums, begonias and other popular blooming stock this time of year, along with packed tables of tropical palms, orchids and ferns.

Schmidt and her siblings are the sixth generation to run the family business, which was started in 1871 and passed to them in recent years from their mother, Judy Pemberton. The nursery has evolved multiple new services to address the regional community’s plant needs, including plant rentals and storage services, for residential and business clients who don’t have the time or space to keep their planted invest-ments thriving for the entire year.

The company also contracts to supply plants for multiple local... http://smileypete.com/business/growing-with-the-times/

Mystery flower can be grown outdoors - INFORUMSunday, February 11, 2018
I have not had a problem since I started doing this. - Dorothy Broste, Bemidji, Minn.A: I hadn't heard of Epsom salts effect on flavor. Previously I quoted North Dakota State University's view on Epsom salts: "Blossom end rot is caused by a deficiency of calcium. Epsom salts contain magnesium sulfate - no calcium at all. Adding Epsom salts to the soil may create more rot since magnesium and calcium ions compete for uptake into the plant."Most of our soils have sufficient calcium, but it's the tomatoes inability to absorb the element that creates a problem. My mother always added eggshells to plants, just as you're doing. The sharpness of crushed eggshells on the soil surface helps deter slugs, also.If you have a gardening or lawn care question, email Don Kinzler at ForumGrowingTogether@hotmail.com.
