They're beautiful, Randall! And what are the pink flowers - honesty?

Daniel: I gotta prove I "grow" irises, too! Happy Memorial Day, everyone. Enjoy your gardens.

Daniel, reading about Ning growing pussy-willows made me nostalgic for my youth.

We played by the snake river a lot, and there were many pussy-willows there.  I loved the little furry catkins, and dad taught us how to make whistles with the branches.

Glad to read they are easy to grow.

I hear ya, King. I'm having the same problems. And my dog makes things worse by digging after them.

Enjoying chives, cilantro, and, of course, asparagus!! Strawberries next.

For some reason, these turned out very nice this year.

Comment by Joan Denoo on May 24, 2014 at 3:08pm

Spud, keep us posted on its progress. 

Comment by Idaho Spud on May 24, 2014 at 3:04pm

Thanks Joan.  Unwinding the roots is something that I've heard before, but had forgotten.  I might have remembered it when I went to plant it and saw the winding roots.

Comment by Joan Denoo on May 24, 2014 at 2:35pm

Spud, my guess is that last year's trees in pots are OK and only if you unwind the roots. As the tree grows, the roots will strangle each other if you do not unwind them.

The tree and shrubs that I have planted from pot-bound plants have survived very well if I pull the dirt out of the roots, then plant them on a mound in the hole I dug, spread the roots out over the mound, water them in, fill the hole with dirt, step on the soil firmly to get a good contact between roots and dirt. Build a little dam around the outside of the hole, soak the soil until the well is full and let it soak in. Continue to keep it moist as it grows new tiny roots.
