GARDEN SUCKERS -


In the garden suckers (basal shoots) are new plants that emerge, not from a seed, but from meristem tissue in the root system or at the base of a mature plant. 

Suckers can be an excellent way to get new, identical plants, or they can suck the life out of a marginally healthy tree. 

In spring, it is not uncommon to see a cluster of new stems emerging from the base of the tree, several feet away from the trunk, or sometimes in the “V” of your plant. 

Removing suckers diverts that energy back into the tree or fruit plant. The  best way to remove suckers is by ripping the sucker from its attachment. By tearing, the bud is more likely to be damaged, reducing the chances of it coming back.

HOW TO DRY LAVENDER


To harvest, snip off the top tips of the plant while the leaves are green, avoiding the tougher woody section found further down the stem.

Spread the leaves out on a clean dish towel or paper towel and allow them to air dry for several days.

Once dry, store them in a brown paper bag, or a glass jar tucked into a dark cabinet.

As long as they have a noticeable color and scent, they’re good to useImprove your health… Eating more fresh fruits and vegetables is one of the most important things you can do to stay healthy.
