greendougherty.Blog – Friday Roundup – December 8, 2017

Another heavy period on the computer this with getting a Playlist for Picture Memories of Yorkville together. Just finished this project earlier this evening and posted a link to several groups on Facebook. It’s basically 29 videos covering hundreds of pictures collected over the years on assorted websites.

So, with that project finished, on to another for next week, here goes with this weeks Friday Roundup.

NOTE: Also, I’m still working on doing an intro for the assorted groups on Facebook under my Admin and putting a new intro for each group and the respective videos that I have related to that facebook group. Like I said, use the comment section to engage other visitors who leave comments on the videos and not only the facebook postings.

We’re getting close to getting a weekly rhythm on these blogs and the weekly roundup on Friday. I got thousands of pictures and tunes to share and hopefully I can find a way to fund the day to day operations. Having side dinero would give me peace of mind.

Featured

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

One of the more popular plants in the Dougherty Garden is that of the Hawaiian Ti plant. The Hawaiian Ti plant has two versions in the Dougherty Garden. onw is the green leafed version and the other is the pink leafed version.

Scientific Name: Cordyline fruiticosa

Common Name: Hawaiian Ti

Over the years, I have produced a few videos on the Hawaiian Ti plant and here are the lniks to these videos.

COMING SOON: Recent video of the Hawaiian Ti plants growing in the Dougherty Garden, including young plants.

Pink Leafed version of the Hawaiian Ti plant. This is part of the Cordyline series of plants. Most of this series of plants have the tell tale trunk.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Green Leafed version of the Hawaiian Ti plant. You can see from this picture this is not a leggy plant.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The pink version of the Hawaiian Ti plant add a bit of color to the Dougherty Garden. What I love about this plant is that if somebody wants to grow one of these plants, all I have to do is make a cutting and dust the bottom with some rooting hormone and pot it up and in a few weeks we have a new Hawaiian Ti plant. You can even take this cutting and place the cutting in a glass of water and in a short operiod of time, roots develop.

At this point in  time I labeled the plant #742. Here are a few cuittings that I had taken from a Hawaiian Ti plant that had a leggy look.  I cut a section away asnd cut them into several section and potted them in this pot.

greendougherty.Blog – Today in the Dougherty Garden – September 3, 2017

Featured

The first in the Dougherty Garden from the new greendougherty.Blog featuring a post from Today in the Dougherty Garden. Since I’m working with a limited library, grab the pictures as I’ll delete older piuctures so that I don’t overload the library. Cutting costs on this end. Also, Today in the Dougherty Garden will combine all plants (palms, flowers, tropical plants, and then some…) into one blog and I’ll try and do a video of each blog. Enjoy.

My three unknown plants at the moment. So many plants change hands over time that one forgets to write down the name and we’re subjected to searching the internet for plant names. I’ll do a blogs on just these plants the next time because they are so unusual.

Today in the Dougherty Garden – August 24, 2017

Another trip through the Dougherty Garden. Some of the pictures are from the collection over the years and most are from my current garden. Enjoy. Open to any questions, just use the comment box below.

This is a spent bloom of the Bird of Paradise plant in the Dougherty Garden. I took it all apart but found no seeds in this flower.

Beautiful Bird of Paradise flower in all it s glory.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

While visiting a medical center in North Palm Beach, I came across this Bismarckia palm tree that was in the midst of pumping out seed bracts. Look at the canopy of the Bismarckia palm tree and see the numerous bracts of seeds that are getting ready to fall. As I got close to the palm tree, I always look at the base of a palm tree to see if there are any seeds. I was caught by surprise and saw a bunch of seeds and several that had already sprouted a seedling. I tried to pry one or two of the seedlings out of the ground but was not able to budge any of the seedlings. I opted for grabbing a few of the seeds that you will see in the following picture, to the right, are large back seeds.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The majority of the seeds above are from the Solitaire palm tree and the small pot to the right with a few large seeds are from the Bismarckia palm tree.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

A Brazilian Needle palm tree that was the victim of a tree limb that fell on its crown that was being cut down. I cut away all of the damaged leaves and let it alone to see if the palm survived and it looks to be healthy again. this area is my shade area for plants.

Here is the tree that was cut down abourt a month or so, ago. I’m in the process of reclaiming the area for more plants that are not as big. The stump has to go.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

My shade area of the garden with a Cabbage palm tree on the right that has quite a few different plants growing in the base of the palm tree leaves. The fern that you see is very aggressive and throws off lateral shoots and in a short period of time can take over an area. The good part is that you can pull these plants out and most of the lateral roots.

Striped Leaf Plant

Striped Leaf plant that is a common house plant and that I call the plant that will not die. I planted this in the ground twice in a shaded area trying to get it to adapt. I put it back in a pot and it seems to be doing fine at the moment.

Today in the Dougherty Garden – August 22, 2017

I’m still toying with the idea of what to use for a header picture on this garden blog and may have to go to designing one that I’ll make up fom all the pictures. That is still up in the air and I’ll probably see how it looks without a featured image as they call it for this post. For now, let’s get back to Today in the Dougherty Garden.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Garden Area C is presently going through a renovation and cleaning of the weeds that seem to be very heavy this year. This is the area that I hand  cut the edging and the reasson that it is so jagged at the moment.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Another section of the Garden Area C where I have a few Buddha Belly plants sitting in the sun. Waiting for September to do the edging for this area.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Typical Cabbage palm tree found in a commercial landscape all over South Florida. Most Cabbage palm trees will survive in a few colder areas north of our area in South Florida.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Garden Area C with a Hawaiian Ti plant with green leaves close to the ground. The Solitaire palm tree has two plants at the base of the palm tree. The one on the left side of the palm tree is that of a Climbing Orchid that has two flowers at the moment. The plant to the right at th base is a Climbing Cactus plant that I’m in the process of attaching to the Solitaire palm tree.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Climbing Orchids with blooms. On the bottom with two terra cotta pots flipped on their sides by the local birds looking for food, are a few baby Climbing Orchids that I separated from the mother plant a while back.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Close up view of the Climbing Orchid plant on the Solitaire palm tree.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The center terra cotta pot has a Cycad seed in the middle, light beige, that just put out a young leaf with the rootdown in the soil. This is a Cardboard cycad.

DCIM100SPORT

One of the edging areas in the Dougherty Garden that was easy to edge.

The above is a collage of sorts of a Fern growing through a Mushroom plant in the Dougherty Garden. I’ll see if I can get a better close up picture now that I had cleared away a lot of the weeds in the area.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here are the pots that I put a few garlic cloves that are having a hard time putting out a stem. I’m wondering if they were genetically modified?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here is the remains of the Sleeping Hibiscus plants that I had removed from the Hibiscus Hedge a ew months ago. These were the remnants of the base portion of the plant that i had removed from the ground where the hedge was located. Apparently, the roots were still active and here is the proof that I have a few Sleeping Hibiscus plants..

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

NEW01 is the seeds that I received from my friend in California for Mexican Bird of Paradise that seemed off to a good start but fell to the extreme heat of the South Florida sun and all baby seedlings dried out.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Three plants from left to right are a pot of Queen palmseeds, middle plant is that of two Hawaiian Ti plants and a potted punknown palmseedling.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here is my Wandering Jew ground cover that is getting comfortable in it new location. I put down a fresh load of no float mulch to hold back soem of the wees that are growin very fast, even witht he hot sunny days that we have been having lately.

That covers the latest from Today in the Dougherty Garden and what plants are making my day in the Dougherty Garden.

Today’s Plant in the Dougherty Garden on August 10, 2017 – Bird of Paradise

Featured

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is the Bird of Paradise in the Dougherty Garden as of August 11, 2017. It’s not a completely sunny area because the plant is surrounded by a Coconut and Solitaire palm trees but seems to be doing alright in this location. There are about ten Bird of Paradise plants in this cluster planting. I love when they sell these plants in garden centers to get the buyer’s attention because of the amount of plants in one pot. If you check the mature Bird of Paradise plant below, You’ll notice several Bird of Paradise plants in that large plant.

The Bird of Paradise plant is a plant that once it is comfortable, it will produce little pups from the base of the plant. The Bird of Paradise loves full sun and grows with out any problems. I did not have pest problems while this plant was in the Dougherty Garden. If you are careful, you can capture one of these little pups to give to a friend as long as you are able toget a section that has roots at the bottom.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

After taking a picture of the Bird of Paradise plant I took a picture of the most recent bloom om the plant. I’m anxious to do a disecction of this bloom when it dries out to see if the seeds are being produced.

This series of blogs will record for posterity some of the plants that were part of the Dougherty Garden over the years and some that are still are part of the Dougherty Garden. One of those plants is that of the Bird of Paradise. I originaly had a white Bird of Paradise and spent the beter part of a day removing it from the space that it as in in order to ret anothe rplant in the Dougherty garden. Last year I received a Bird of Paradise with a yellow flowers.

My beautiful picture

This is the Bird of Paradise with white flowers that was a part of the Dougherty Garden. The Bird of Paradise was still a very active plant in the Dougherty Garden in 2011 when this picture was taken. It was a few years later that I decided that I had to remove the Bird of Paradise because it was growing really tall with new shots coming out on the bottom.

553 Bird of Paradise with White Flowers on 090109

It took a bit of time to remove the Bird of Paradise because I had to use a fold a way hand saw with a nice serated cutting edge to cut into each plant that was about four inched in diameter. After I removed all the top growth, I had to use the saw to cut into the rot system to make sure thsat I had completely removed the Bird of Paradise. IT’s a beautiful plant but I do have second thoughts thinking about what it wil look like in a few years.

553 White Bird of Paradise Seeds on 101110

When I was taking the Bird of Paradise out of the ground I figured that it was an opportune time to capture as many seeds as possible before the plant was completely removed form the garden. Here are a few o the seeds that I was able to save at the time.

More seeds when I finished with the Bird of Paradise.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

And the final view of my Bird of Paradise plant from the Dougherty Garden. If you have any questions about the Bird of Paradise, I’ll try and answer your question. I’ll be making an index of sorts for all the plants that will be listed in the Dougherty Garden Plant of the day.

Enjoy growing green every day,
