I have a clump of 'Halls Pink' which I've neglected to divide for
eight years. It hasn't bloomed in two years and is tightly packed in
a clump. I would like to divide them now, but I live in Texas and
starting in a few days it will be in the 80-90 degree range. In June
it stays high 90s till the end of October.
Can I divide them now and if so, will they have any chance of blooming
this year? Also, should I just wait till fall and give up this years
Thanks. I know these are tough plants, but I've got little to no
experience with them and I think I've now got the bug.
Okay, will do. It's such a nice flower and I am moving alll the
drought tolerant plants up to the front gardens. I'll have mostly
succulents and daylillies, with some datura and other very drought
(once established) plants.
Is therre anything other than fish emulsion because I'm on the path to
vegan and want to eliminate all animal derived products from my life.
Wait till I tell Mark I want to get rid of the Thomasville nubuck
furniture. That ought to be a fun discussion!
seaweed emulsion, but it's not quite as good. i use it on the
houseplants, because i have cats (& puppies) and who wants a
house that smells like the hold of a trawler anyway? ;)
i'm not vegan, but i've never been a fan of leather
furniture. it's cold in the winter (up here in the
hinterlands. ymmv) & sticky in the summer. the newer bamboo or
hemp upholstery fabrics are quite nice... the few upholstered
pieces i own are cotton twill however.

I pinged a host that wasn't there
I always add black strap molassas to the seaweed and I only buy the
sulfured molassas. Our pH is high down here in TX.
Our leather furniture feels like suede it is very soft and not like
polished leather. It has a slight nap to it. I just don't want it
any more. I suppose I can always have it re-upholstered, but what I
really want it a modular pit couch. I have some pieces of cotton
twill, almost canvas or duck from Ikea which I really like very much.
As for heat and cold, it's so hot in summer I don't know people who
live here without air conditioning. I'm sure there are some poor
folks because they are always collecting fans every year go give away.
For this heat the leather stays cool in summer so is nice. I simply
don't want it any more.
Water well first, apply about a cup of pellets to a fairly large
and then water lightly again.
The pellets will swell up and start to fall apart. Each time you water
they will soon disappear.
They have a growth hormone, lots of trace minerals, and help to make
your soil nice and "fluffy".
They're just like getting the cow manure, except you are bypassing
the cow part!
I get them at the local feed store,
