Do you currently have or will have Cape Jasamine bushes this sprint

If you are asking about Tabernaemontana, no we do not have that species at this time. If you are asking about Gardenias, yes we have several varieties from which to choose.

Hello,

do you have any of the what i call the old fashion Coral Vines?

PlantMaster Reply:

JBD, so far we have not shipped any of the Coral Vine. I suspect that it is because they are not up to size and showing any flower buds, which is a requirement that we have on most blooming vines. Please submit your request at the store where you usually shop and allow our buyer to see that you are interested. Perhaps we could find some before they are normally ready.

Love the geraniums!!!

Mary MidaniApril 23rd, 2010 at 12:43 pm

I am wondering about the large gardenia, not the small ones. Will there be any this year. I am referring to the ones that look so good as corsages, now the dwarf ones. Would love an answer.

PlantMaster Reply:

We have ‘August Beauty’, ‘First Love’, ‘White Gem’ and ‘Veitchii’ Gardenias in most stores which all have the larger flowers, as opposed to the Dwarf Radicans Gardenia type.

Any chance you can give me some advice for those awful white bugs that are on the Crape myrtles?

I do not like using poison. Any natural item that can be used??

@Noelle Baranowski,
It could be White Flies or Scale. Malathion would take care of the insects but you’d need a fungicide if the plant has a fungus. It might be a good idea to take some of the affected leaves, wrapped in a plastic baggie, in to our Information Center for a positive identification. They could then show you products suitable for control.

@PlantMaster, Thank you! I will wrap a sample up and take it to you.

@Noelle Baranowski,
My husband uses orange oil in his pump sprayer for all insects, including white flies, scale, aphids, you name it. It’s totally natural and smells good, too. He mixes it with water according to the directions on the bottle.

I really like geraniums. I am interested in the maverick geranium. I am thinking as a border for our landscaping. Will it tolorate full sun, and maintenance. Any deseases that I have to look for. Thank you.

Betty, Geraniums in the Texas sun usually last for several months and remain in color nicely with minimal watering and feeding. However, once the nighttime temperatures stay above 75 or 80 and the daytime temperatures hover in the 90s and 100s, they begin to stop blooming. When the temperatures return to more moderate levels in late Summer and early Fall, they often put on more flowers until the first frost. Otherwise, with minimal care, there are relatively few diseases or insects that are bothersome.

Thought the Maverick geraniums were heat tolerant for our Texas weather? Will they bloom in the hot summer months? Also will the Strawberry Sizzler/Voilet geranium from Bexar Co. grow in the heat of the summer, as advertised?. Do you carry the Sizzler?Thanks Julie M.
