    Welcome to the official site for
    Container Gardening with Rosemary Basil forum

    warning: THIS IS NOT YOUR TYPICAL GARDENING SITE!
    It is not about STYLE or house beautiful. It is about the ART of gardening, the POETRY of life's ups and downs and a PASSION for nature!

    Each day in a garden is an awakening if you slow down and watch-- a storm coming in, a vibrant sunset, flowers blooming, vines twining, seeds forming, critters playing...Come visit my New Orleans courtyard garden...See tropical hibiscus, cannas and bananas, romantic roses and moonflowers, heirloom classics...leapin lizards and hungry birds.

    Hi Yall, welcome old friends and new, fellow garden listers!
    Gardening and photography are my passions! So is writing. Won't you join me to start the day off right, during a break from gardening, or at night for sweet dreams... Inspirational flowerpoems and journal rambles, patriotic FREEDOM FLOWERS for our troops! Funny teddy bear hugs, Nawlins recipes and fun, weather drama, nature watching, foggy health hope, Rapunzelda's rants and photos, photos, photos!


    What is a gumbo?A spicy mix of flavorful sensations--Taste my gumbo-- a mixture of garden guidance and inspiration from colorful flowerpoems and funny teddy bears, tastes of spicy pepper and herb voodoo jazz and blues from New Orleans...

    To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow...
    To love life is to not take it for granted,
    To share your passion with others is to preach love and joy,
    To grow is to experience loss and pain and to keep on planting seeds of hope.

    "Hi Rose, I went to the site to see your Veterans Day tribute. It was so nice!I showed it to my husband, who is a veteran (he was in the 82nd Airborne) and he was very happy to see it too. He was a bit down yesterday because at his work just another fellow veteran mentioned the occasion. So it was great for him to see that there are others who do remember! We loved the flag picture and I read your poem to him. :-) Thanks and best wishes," Renata

    "hi rosemary,
    I moved away, I am a native of New orleans, born and raised, for 31 years, I moved to Vegas for one year, was so homesick, I almost needed medication, I moved back home last year, but the money is not there, I was scouted, doubled my salary, and moved away again, back to vegas.My heart will always be there, New Orleans is my home. I love the people, they compare to no other. Thank you so much for all of the work you do, I visit it often, it keeps me close to home, thank you, thank you, thank you, You keep me close!
    Love,
    elizabeth

    Q:Hey there Basil since your name came up on a search I've gotten lost in your site, kind of fun just like the quarter or shouldn't you really be in the garden district? 'gardless, I'm trying to find out how to ressurect my waterlogged basil plant here in Clearwater, Fla. It ain't doin' so well. Any idears would be appreciated, the tips of one leaf went black so I figured it's burnt, waterlogged or maybe misted too much..... can you give watering tips so I don't do this again, and is there anything I can do to bring the fresh green, but droopy stems back up? My basil's gone impotent! Grassy-ass for any tips sweetie,hastalabyebye...........Matt

    A: Basil likes sun and warmth and will do this in cool rainy climates, usually winter down south. It doesn't like soggy soil or too much rain. Mine had problems last summer with all the rain we got. That's why I like pots. Easy to move them under tables and chairs when it rains too hard. But I think there was a lot of black spot going around last year I heard. Even my peppers were affected. Make sure your soil is a light well aerated one. Add perlite or a bit of sand. And make sure pots are well drained with holes in the bottom and not sitting in saucers of water. Don't mist plants unless you want to try a mixture of baking soda (3-4 tablespoons to a gallon of water) Just be sure to wash the leaves when you harvest them and of course NEVER use any fungicides or pesticides on herbs. Go organic. Gardens Alive has some great solutions. Also, try different varieties. I like African blue (a perennial) and Mexican cinnamon basil best. They tolerate both heat and coolness well. Good luck! Rose ****************
    "Thank you for the detailed information about the Malabar Spinach. It's the best I've found on the internet. I live in England and have grown them for about 3 years, although I can't get the one with red stems. I propagated my original plant from a cutting I took from a bunch on sale in a grocers in London. Thanks Jo" Jo Dalgleish De nada, Jo! Glad you enjoyed Malabar. I love it! ~Rose
