In Topic: What is an ornamental pepper?

20 May 2017 - 02:54 AM

My outlaws have had 2 ornamental pepper plants growing for years, dont know why but the damn things produce fruit all year round ...year after year??
I was always led to believe the ornamental peppers were bred/grown purely for aesthetics suited for pots to be placed on a balcony or porch etc

In Topic: Tips for keeping dogs away from my plants?

Does anyone have any tips or tricks for keeping my dogs away from my plants? Perhaps even a home remedy that isn't as expensive as some of the sprays ive seen online? One of my dogs busted through the plastic garden netting i have around my raised bed and dug a hole and damaged a couple plants. My peppers are all in pots and i dont know if they would bother them but i do see them eating grass and weeds often and i would be pissed if i came home to chewed up pepper plants. Any thoughts? Thanks

What breed/s do you have Edmick?

If your using compost/manures in your soil mix chances are you will never stop your dogs from wanting to get at it,they are attracted to the smell.

I had to relocate all my plants in pots to the front yard out of harms way of my dogs as the bacteria in compost/manures can make them very ill or even kill them if they eat enough.

Just got back from my roasters with the usual bag of Mysore Nuggets, he knows my palate and strongly recomended me trying some 'Honduras San-Marcos' beans, so came home with a bag of them also.
Anyone else tried the HSM before ?

Some type of crab spider would be my guess.


Google this (yellow thomisidae crab spider) and hit images?
