Tomato Starters, Tea Tree and Roses GardenChat Live
Streaming live in the 20-foot geodesic biodome on this beautiful day in May. Find out more about the dome on this website.
The uncut version of this video was a live stream on the Facebook GardenChat group. The edited version is on Bren Haas YouTube Channel. If you are on YouTube I’d love your support so please subscribe and comment.
In the post I had to narrow down to just a few topics to cover and I still went over 15 minutes gabbing. Didn’t I say I could stream all day sharing about gardening! Below I have a few of the main topics highlights.
Tomato starters are doing amazing in the dome this year. I’ve got so many I hope I find enough homes for all of them. In the video I share how it is important to give those tomato babies room to grow meaning pot them in a container that the roots can grow deep. A few tips I shared today are listed below:
- Give the tomato starter enough space to grow strong roots. I love those Jiffy type pots that break down in the soil nice letting the roots climb out.
- Water from the bottom meaning I sit my containers in a tray that is hole-free. I had water to the bottom as high as I need to go so that the roots are getting a drink.
- Keep those tomato babies warm as they grow. Mine will be in the dome which average about 80*F during daylight until they get put in the garden outside in late May.
I share more about the Tomato Seed Starters on my site including videos at Bren Haas Tomato Plants.
Roses in Containers
I’ve been growing roses in containers since my ‘bouquet rose’ share back in 2013. Today I grow a 1/2 dozen in the dome year-round. Below are a few photos. I need to do a video highlighting this experience. In the video on this post I do share a few pointers about growing in containers.
I hope to share details about my containers in the controlled garden space soon. Look for a dome update soon!
