Growing Ginger

Growing ginger – The ginger (Zingiber officinale) plant is an herbaceous perennial native to the tropical regions of Asia and India. The root has been used both in Asian cooking and in Chinese medicine for many centuries. Ginger is also grown in Jamaica and West Africa. In the United States, ginger is cultivated in Hawaii.

Ginger is a member of the Ginger plant family Zingiberaceae and is related to turmeric and cardamom. It should not be confused with the wild ginger (Asarum canadense) that is native to North America. Although not related botanically, the roots of the wild ginger have a similar pungent flavor and can be used to cook.

Cucumbers: Must-Have Vegetables In The Garden

Cucumbers: Must-Have Vegetables In The Garden

Before growing cucumbers in your garden make sure you give them plenty of room or provide them with something to climb on. Cucumbers are vine plants that usually grow on the ground and will spread to well over six feet in length. If you do not have the kind of room for these trailing vines you can train them to climb a fence or a trellis. A trellis trained or fence trained plant will produce better formed cucumbers.

When you get around to growing cucumbers you will have a large selection to choose from for planting. There are narrow, large cukes for eating right off the vine and short, fat cucumbers for pickling. But you can also pickle the long, narrow ones and the short, fat variety can be eaten raw in a salad.

Tips To Create A Focal Point In The Garden

Tips To Create A Focal Point In The Garden – In the garden people should instantly feel that they are in a tranquil place of beauty, calm and enjoyment. One way to make sure that this is the case is to make sure that the visual aspects of your garden are attractive in all the right ways. What this means is that your eye should be drawn to one place as you enter the garden. Your eyes should also be drawn in a certain way in different directions within the garden. As you enter the garden, your focal point should be somewhere in your field of view. It should not be straight ahead of the entrance to the garden, but it should be that it is off either to the right or to the left side as you enter the garden. This is important because as you enter the garden this feeling of tranquility should be immediate.
