"A weed has mastered every survival skill except for learning how to grow in rows." (Doug Larson)
"Bulb: potential flower buried in autumn, never to be seen again." (Henry Beard)
"'Vigorous' is code for 'has a Napoleonic compulsion to take over the world.'" (Gardening Nirvana)
If you have ever had any of these thoughts or experienced any of these situations, the Master Gardener organization can help you sort them out. Please note this exception: the last statement about "vigorous" refers to wisteria, which is this writer's nemesis! And no, my fellow Master Gardeners have been no help in bringing it under control.
However, I have learned tips and tidbits for the other problems, and even some other plants described as "vigorous." If you would like to broaden your gardening horizons, watch for an announcement regarding the start of another class, usually in January, with classes in February and March. It's more than just work, though. We're a fun-loving group and, of course, gardeners know all the dirt.
In the meantime, take advantage of the beginning of fall and go play in the dirt.
