    Does a saguaro cactus sound feasible for your garden? They require minimal water and can be used to remove those unsightly neighbor cars.

    Tater,

    Aren't those the species of cactii that people go into the desert to find big ones of and dig them up to sell them to people as landscape plants?

    I know a well established Canary Island Date Palm can sell for well over $10,000.
    I've seen two that went for $40,000 EACH (bought by a very large and well to do Baptist Church, they look phenomenal in front of the sanctuary).

    I wonder what one of those big ass cactii go for?

    And how the hell would you dig it it up and transport it and re-plant it without getting all fooked up?

    Life is crazy when you get too into plants!!!!

    What's the best way to murder grass so you can plant there, without much in the way of tools? (seriously, I don't even have a shovel anymore)

    I was thinking about just pinning down some garbage bags over the area and starving the grass to death, but I don't know if that would actually work.....grass is hard to kill. This is itty bitty just started growing grass, but it's still annoying.

    Or I could just go buy some tools, lol.

    That's actually the best way to do it. That should kill everything in about 7-10 days.

    Grass killer spray, which you can combine with dish soap and some other stuff for a powerful kill concoction works within 1-2days. The downside is that there will be chemicals lingering in the soil for a period of time; meaning, a wait time before planting.

    I'd throw a tarp over the area, stake it down, and leave it alone for a week.

    Yes, but its totally illegal. Saguaros are only found in the Sonoran Desert.
    Saguaro Cactus Fact Sheet.

    What a lot of people don’t realize is that many of Arizona’s native plants are protected by law. These protected plants may not be removed from any lands, whether private or public, without the permission of the land owner and a permit from the Arizona Department of Agriculture. While land owners do have the right to remove native plants on their land, there is a process that must be followed. Protected species notification must be given to the Arizona Department of Agriculture and a permit must be issued prior to removal.

    1. Highly Safeguarded – These plants are threatened for survival or are in danger of extinction. Protection includes not only the plants themselves, but their plant parts such as fruits, seeds and cuttings. A few examples of species in this category are saguaro (Carnegiea gigantea), Arizona willow (Salix arizonica), and some agave and cacti (Agavaceae and Cactaceae families).
    If you are caught, the fine for uprooting them is something like $10,000 per plant.

    Plus you may have to defend yourself against a 10,000 needles attack!

    They look kick ass and they may kick your ass


    How about getting some native seeds for your garden? Its a wonderful way to support biodiversity and ensure you have plants that are well adapted to your conditions.

    I'm thinking that I want to somehow encourage dandelions to grow at least in one part of my yard.. they're a bit annoying plants, but the FLOWERS make some awesome recipes. One of these days I'll have all my little gardens set up around my house.

    I'd love to have a wildflower garden of weeds and flowers that grow naturally..
    A nice gothic and evening garden near my house to enjoy in the evenings.. All those black-colored flowers and evening bloomers. They look so amazing, the darker flowers.
    A nice hummingbird and butterfly garden would rock, but far away from the house :3 I'm scared of bees!
    A nice, traditional "I can eat this shit!" garden would rock.
    And of course an herb garden

    ....I wonder where I'll find time for all of these gardens.

    We have rose bushes in my gardens, like, the front garden and the back garden are the two gradens with my house in the middle, they're mostily red and pink and have been there since the 1960s, but I did plant a tequiler sunrise hyrbird rose bush last year and it looks cool this year, plus I mow the lawns and keep it tidy and keep down the ivy and dig up the weeds and such... We also have a bonfire and there is a concreted brook that still runs along the back of my garden, the path to it is the banks of that.
    Only ever flooded once in my lifetime.

    Jasmine and Honeysuckle both smell amazing, even if they aren't as interesting to look at.

    I've always wanted to try to grow tulips, but have never had the garden space to do so. Derp.

    I have a houseplant right now, a shamrock.
