Greenhouse Gardening

I love  to garden in the greenhouse for many different reasons. For One I control the climate. I also control the amount of water and fertilizer that my plants need. Gardening in the greenhouse is all together different from gardening outdoors. Animals will usually not enter the greenhouse so I don’t have to worry about them eating everything to the ground. After all there is nothing more frustrating than to put  in a whole bunch of work on a garden only to find out weeks later that the animals have already eaten everything to the ground before you could get any produce at all. You can only imagine how angry I was. So I moved my operation indoors. With much success I might add. Not bad for my first year greenhouse gardening.

The Greenhouse Effect

When spending any length of time inside your greenhouse remember to always have good ventilation. Because greenhouse gases will build up and can make you very sick or even pass out. You might not even know and then you’re laying on the ground. Gases come up from the ground  and get trapped inside the greenhouse. The gases can become very dangerous if not ventilated properly. It’s true I found out the hard way. Trust me ventilate. Plus if you don’t ventilate it can get up to 140 degrees in there and that alone will fry every plant in there.

Build a Greenhouse

When planning a greenhouse consider building it yourself out of recycled materials. This will save you a lot of money which you can then use on plants to fill it with. I built mine using recycled windows and recycled wood, but I did use some lumber that I bought and roof panels  that I bought. Try to grow using all organic methods and practices. You food will taste better and be healthier done the old-fashioned way. But that’s just my opinion and I’m old school I like doing things they way my father and grandfather taught me. They are the best methods and still work today. Heck I still have seeds from when my father used to garden over 25 years ago and some are still viable. Talk about heirloom seeds.

Bamboo Privacy Screen

Bamboo For Privacy

A bamboo privacy screen may be just what you’re looking for. Bamboo has many different uses but the biggest one of all is Privacy. People are tired of being scrutinized by every move they make. And in our own yard we have the right to some privacy. Why all of a sudden people can’t mind their own business is beyond me. Because as busy as my life is I don’t have time to worry about what someone else is doing. Bamboo will give you all the privacy you want while still looking beautiful all year-long. Take for instance a

wooden privacy fence will need to be painted year after year but a bamboo grove may just require a little watering from time to time. I would much rather water than scrape and paint every year wouldn’t you. Plus a bamboo privacy screen is much more eco-friendly because you don’t have to cut down trees to get the fence.

Deck Privacy

Even if you have a deck that is a couple of stories high or a second or third story window that you want to block, bamboo privacy screening is the answer for many bamboo will grow to great heights. Just make sure you find the right bamboo for the right application. There is one that will work for every situation, at least above zone 5 that I know of.  With a wooden privacy fence there are restrictions on height but not with a living fence. There are no restrictions to my knowledge. Personally, I would rather look at some beautiful living growing plants than an old board fence but that’s  just my opinion.

Fast Growing Trees

When bamboo starts it’s shooting it only takes 3 months to grow their full height for that stage in their life so if a mature bamboo shoots it can grow up to 40-50 ft tall in just 3 months. I’m telling you it’s the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen in my life. I’ve seen my bamboo grow to over 2 1/2 ft in 24 hours. It sounds crazy but  it’s true. If you’d like more info check out my other blog at mybamboogrove.com or hardybamboo.org or makemoneygardening.org   We have many different species of cold hardy bamboo for sale. Just call (859)468-5625 ask for Jeff.

Transplanting Bamboo

Transplanting Bamboo

When transplanting bamboo it’s always best to get the whole plant in one big root-ball. Of course we all know that sometimes this is impossible. Because the plant gets extremely large so sometimes we have to take the root-balls in manageable sizes. It’s just that the plants taken separate will have to start over and if left together they will grow much faster and continue to size up, and the others will have smaller canes the first year or two. But if you do have to separate take advantage of this time to spread them out and divide them to make your screen longer and wider. Just be prepared for a few years before you see any significant growth. Good luck and keep on growing.

Transplanting Bamboo Get a Good Size Root-ball

It’s been said that what one man can move takes 10 years to mature. What ten men can move takes 1 year to mature. So you should always try to get the largest root-ball that you can possibly handle for the best results. But also remember that if you put it in the truck you gotta get it out of the truck so get one that you can handle lifting twice. Transplanting Bamboo is very hard on your back so be careful.

Transplant

Always dig your hole about twice the size of your root-ball so that the ground around it is easy for the rhizomes to travel in and they will establish much faster and stronger. By the end of the year you should be able to see the difference. Within 3 years you should see a big difference. But you will thank yourself if you took the largest size root-ball because you will be seeing extraordinary growth. We took these from a 4-5 year old grove with special made shovels and it was the easiest bamboo we have ever dug. Needless to say we will be purchasing some of the shovels real soon.

The Bigger The Better

For Best results with your instant bamboo privacy screen. The bigger the plant you start with the better it will grow. Bamboo stores massive amounts of energy in its culms and rhizomes. So the bigger the plant, the more energy it has stored away for next years growth. When bamboos are shooting the energy goes to the new shoots. Then after the shoots are finished growing the energy is going to growing its rhizomes or roots. I always compare it to solar panels and battery storage. The leaves of the instant bamboo privacy screen take in the sun(solar panels). The rhizomes are the batteries that store this energy. Saving it for later use when the plants shoot or grow rhizomes. The plants we have for sale right now will create an Instant Bamboo Privacy Screen.

Vegetable Seeds

Starting Vegetable Seeds

Vegetable Seeds

Vegetable Seeds

Vegetable seeds  are easy to start and grow. Vegetable seeds are a lot cheaper than buying the plants already grown  for you. And you can grow vegetable seeds organically if you’d like. I choose to grow organic because I think the fruits and vegetables taste a lot better. But it’s really up to you. I feel better about the veggies I eat if I grow them myself and I’m sure you will too. I use only rain water from my rain barrels to water my vegetable seeds and I only use compost for fertilizer. I also grow my veggies in my greenhouse so that I actually get to eat the vegetables I grow and not feed the local wildlife.

Saving Your Vegetable Seeds

If you know you’re going to have a garden the next year you should save some vegetable seeds of the plants that you know you will be growing. Then the following years you will save more money gardening your vegetable seeds. I save my vegetable seeds every year and I’m always glad I did. You should also try to  grow enough to can your veggies it really saves money to have canned veggies in the winter time. They will always taste great too.  I will usually wait till about the end of the season to save the seeds because of their viability. The longer vegetable seeds sit the less viable they are. This is not true for all seeds some seed stay viable for thousands of years. But saving vegetable seeds can save you money and make you money also.

Harvest Time

At harvest time you will be happy to go and pick your fresh vegetables and put them right out to eat. The taste is amazing. A tomato grown in your yard and a tomato bought from the store don’t even compare. The taste of the home-grown tomato is out of this world and the taste of the store-bought tomato is so bland you can barely taste it. This is because the store-bought tomato is picked before it is ripe and the home-grown tomato ripens on the vine. There is a huge difference in the taste and that is a fact. Don’t forget to save your vegetable seeds. For more info check out http://makemoneygardening.org/

Bamboo Plants In The Ground

Bamboo Plants In The Ground

A Bamboo plant in the ground will gain its full hardiness by the time it is established. By that I mean that it has many of its own culms around it for protection. In order for this to happen the bamboo plants need to grow and spread out. So if you’re looking to grow some very large canes or culms be prepared to give your bamboo room because it will need many canes to get large. Once it has established you will be amazed at how fast this magnificent plant grows. It’s one of the most incredible  things I have ever witnessed and I get to do it year after year after year. And with 39 different species of bamboo plants I get excited many times a year. So Plan a Visit To Gabelmans Gardens to check it out. It’s something you won’t soon forget.

A Bamboo Plant in a Pot

A Potted Bamboo Plant is different from Bamboo in the ground. A bamboo planted in the ground is a very durable plant. However, a bamboo in a pot is a very needy, under-developed plant that if left to its own devices will most of the time die.  It will  require extra  care because the pot will dry out faster and it will need to be fertilized more often. Just over-all harder to take care of.   Bamboo in the ground will mostly survive on their own.

Bamboo Plants

If  the pot is left out in the cold to freeze solid, many times it will die. But bamboo plants in a pot that is protected from the elements will survive without much care. But bamboo in a pot will always  be less hardy than bamboo plants in the ground.

Learn All About Bamboo Plants

When you visit we will teach you everything you need to know about growing, containing and maintaining Bamboo Plants. We love to teach you what took me many years to learn and you’ll learn in just a few minutes. But the best part is getting to see the giant canes   it always takes people’s breath away. Bamboo plants come in many different  shapes and sizes and we have some of each.
