This group does not have any discussions yet.
I started this so I can unite with other plant-folk.
I study botany, and have worked horticulture most of my life. I do some small-time farming and independent nursery work, and I collect extremely rare plants like weird Sapotaceae fruit trees, and odd strains of heirloom tobacco and vegetables.
I love to talk about organic gardening, and about home-making medicinals and botanical products.
I'd love for the group to discuss anything that interests them as it may pertain to gardening, scientific botany, making plant products at home, etc
Some examples, just to name a few:
What should I feed my cornstalks;
How can I make cocoa butter from cacao beans;
How do I pollinate my vanilla flowers;
How to cure tobacco leaves for smoking;
What plants will produce REAL, natural pest repellents for use elsewhere in the garden;
Why do I keep killing my orchids;
How to prune roses and prevent blackspot;
How to compost or grow worms and plants for compost;
How do I prevent my heirloom melons from cross-pollinating;
How to extract menthol from Mentha spicata leaves;
What the hell is pH, and why is it important;
What schools have outstanding botany or horticulture training;
Trustworthy, genuine sources of organic seeds;
This subject is kinda boring to most non-plant-lovers, so I actually don't expect a big turnout ;-D
Much love <3
