Neighbours talking over the garden gate has long been a tradition. They share gardening tips, complain about the weather and pests yet are ever eager to discuss their gardens. That is what I had in mind when creating this blog. So stop by my garden gate to find out the latest happenings in my garden.

Happy Gardening!

Palm Trees

Palm Tree
October 7, 2010

Palm trees are very popular where our vacation home is.  They are rather problem free, tolerating the heat and humidity well.  Pictured is one of the palm trees near our vacation home.  Now palms actually come with one itsy, bitsy problem.  They attract palmetto bugs aka American cockroach.  I am not impressed with palmetto bugs at all even though I know they don't bite or do damage.  They are huge and they will come up sewage pipes.  We have had two come up through the toilet at the vacation home so I am definitely not impressed.  The last thing I need before having coffee in the morning is to have a visitor in my toilet, thank-you very much!

Happy Gardening!
