I received an email in December 2014 from a volunteer in the School Fund Raising Events team in America:-

Thank you to Cindy, who did some research on her own and found this page - http://www.topiarytree.net/greatgardendingresources.php  It has a lot of great information on different types of gardening and these students found it especially helpful!  
Thank you to Cindy, and the rest of the kids at their youth center.  They have been learning about gardening and found this article about different types of gardening that they sent to me.  Good luck with your plants, kids!

 

"About School Fund Raising Events:-
SchoolFundRaisingEvents.com has been a leader in fundraising resources and information since 2008. The site was started as a partnership between several parents who had dealt with school fundraisers for years. They noticed a lack of good resources that covered all of the basics of fundraising and provided assistance to those who were trying to plan successful fundraisers. During a discussion after one particularly stressful fundraiser, they decided to create a resource for other parents that provided the basics and helped them find help with fundraisers. They pooled their fundraising knowledge and created SchoolFundRaisingEvents.com. Since then, they have gathered more information from other parents, students and teachers and the site continues to grow today.

Our Mission

Our main mission is to help connect volunteers with schools to assist with fundraising. These volunteers will help with fundraising for a variety of different school activities and programs that enrich the lives of the students involved and further their education in ways that traditional classroom learning might not be able to. Many schools have seen their arts budgets slashed in recent years, resulting in the loss of music, art, dance, and other vital programs. To that end, we strive to find the perfect fundraisers for each program and match these programs up with volunteers who will be able to help them achieve their fundraising goals." from School Fundraising Events in America.

 

in reply:-

Your students might like to create a flower clock as detailed in the following page:-

http://www.ivydenegardens.co.uk/offbeat%20glossary/offbeatglossaryu.html

and then you would have a clock the students could see outside the window during the spring/summer, instead of looking at their watches!

Thanks for your email,

Sea Magic Organics wrote the majority of the following on their website about seaweed:-

The use of seaweed in farming and agriculture has a long history. Seaweed has always been harvested in coastal areas to be used as mulch in vegetable gardens and to supplement feed for animals.

It was not until after World War II that systematic research into the benefits of seaweed took place. Even though seaweed has been researched for over 50 years now, the exact mechanism through which seaweed exerts its positive influence is still not fully known.

Initially, the thought was that the benefits derived from seaweed use were mainly caused by the trace elements.

Seaweed contains all elements. Some in substantial amounts like potassium, but most only in trace amounts. Minerals leach out through the effect of weathering from all landmasses. In the long term these elements invariably find their way into the sea, where they are used by the plants growing there. In seawater you find a natural blend of all the minerals available on earth. Unfortunately seawater contains levels of Sodium Chloride (Salt) that are too high for land-based plants to tolerate in any substantial amount, otherwise seawater would be an ideal fertiliser.

Sandy soils are leached of most of their trace elements and therefore gardeners can have the most potential benefit of using sea minerals in the form of seaweeds and fish. These nutrients are high in the same elements that have been steadily leached and eroded from the soil.

Seaweeds, unlike plants growing in soil, take up the majority of their nutrients from the medium they live in: the seawater. They absorb nutrients directly into their tissues. The 'roots' on seaweed have the main function of anchoring the plant. Seaweed takes up all the trace elements, and stores them in a bio-available, or chelated form. This means that when the breakdown products of seaweed are presented to a plant it will be able to utilise these nutrients. Chelation is a process of incorporating a mineral element in a protein molecule to stop it from reacting with its environment. This means it is in a stable form, and won't react with other elements in the soil, which could make it unavailable to plants.

For most of the trace elements scientists have not worked out exactly what role they play in human, animal or plant nutrition. Until fairly recently only the trace elements Zinc, Iron, Manganese, Molybdenum and Copper were considered to be relevant for human and plant health. Now this list has been expanded to around 20 elements, but the majority of trace elements are still 'irrelevant' according to major nutritionists.

It is not inconceivable that in future the role of more elements might be discovered. The same goes for plant nutrition. The role of most chemical elements is unknown, but supplementation of even the most obscure elements in trace amounts give substantial boosts in yields and in plant health. It is therefore a good idea to provide the widest range of elements to plants that you can think of. Even elements that are considered to be toxic might play an important role if they are provided in trace amounts. In this way seaweed fertilisers act as a 'nutrition insurance', you know that all the trace elements, even the ones you don't know exactly the function of, are provided. Liquid concentrates are usually applied in such limited amounts that there is no fear for toxicity.

Liquid seaweed concentrate is used either as a soil conditioner or as a foliar fertiliser. It can be applied in concentrated form or much diluted. Use of liquid concentrate for soil conditioning gives quick results, but not necessarily long lasting. For problem soils; a seaweed meal might be more beneficial in the longer term. The cost of seaweed meal applications are considerably higher than for concentrate applications, which is a point that has to be taken into consideration for larger gardens.

Liquid extract is used for almost immediate effects. When applied as a foliar spray the nutrients are directly available to the plant, but as a foliar application also causes the plants to increase its uptake of soil nutrients through the roots there is a longer term effect as well.

The importance of trace elements lies mainly in their role in the formation of enzymes. Enzymes play an important role in all living organisms because they act as catalysts, without which many important functions such as the sugar production in plants would not take place. Most enzymes contain an inorganic compound. Often there is just one atom of a metal in the complex molecules with dozens and sometimes hundreds of atoms of Carbon and Hydrogen. Without this one metal atom in each of these enzymes it would not be able to function at all. Without these atoms of metals the enzymes could not function, the organism would not function properly either and start to show signs of disease. Sometimes these elements are only needed in concentrations of 1 in one-million or one in ten-million or even less. They are still needed and if not provided the whole system could be harmed.

Another major component in liquid seaweed extracts are the hormones. The main hormones in seaweed are auxins, gibbelerins, cytokinins and betaines. The roles of these hormones are also essential to plant health. Most of them are required in only very small proportions. They occur naturally. Plants are sometimes able to produce these hormones themselves. There are many different auxins and they all have their specific roles. Their main functions are the balanced control of speed of growth. They have both growth stimulating as well as delaying functions. They stimulate root-growth, prevent bud-forming or opening at the wrong times.

Seaweeds can even play an important role in the production of the plant's own auxins, because the enzymes formed with the help of trace elements from the seaweed often play an important role in the formation of these auxins.

Cytokinins are another powerful group of plant hormones. They initiate and activate basic growth processes. The cytokinins available in seaweed stimulate growth with greater vigour, because they mobilise nutrients in the leaves. They also provide protection from marginal frost (to -3 C). Cytokinins also retard the senescence (aging processes) in the plant.

Betaines play an important role in the osmotic processes in plants. They help to increase the water uptake in plants and are extremely helpful in dry or saline conditions. Betaines are particularly helpful to plants in stress.

 

Soil conditioner

Seaweed and especially the alginates in the seaweed act as soil-conditioners. The alginates react with metals in the soil and form long and cross-linked polymers in the soil. These polymers improve the crumbing in the soil, and swell up when they get wet, and retain moisture for a long period.

 

Foliar feeding

Nutrients are absorbed through leaves more speedily than through its roots. A foliar spray can also work as a stimulant for the plant to take the nutrients up through its root system.

Seaweed and /or fish emulsion sprayed on a bed can have an almost instant effect on the health of the plants. A dramatic increase can be achieved overnight.

Many farmers use the fish and/or seaweed as soon as they find the start of a pest infestation. The day after the foliar application the pest have usually disappeared or are not feeding.

Caution

Seaweed should not be seen as a panacea for every ill. On some gardens, especially the ones with low pH (Highly Acidic) or extremely low Calcium levels (Peaty soils), there has been hardly any benefit in applying seaweed and fish.

Combining seaweed extracts with fish emulsion

Fish emulsion, with its high Nitrogen content complements seaweed extracts well. Fish emulsion also supplies bulk organic matter, which helps to buffer the nutrients available in seaweed. In combination they provide both the trace elements, main nutrients and essential hormones.

In recent research, fish emulsion by itself has been shown to increase the growth of plants through the stimulation of some bacteria strains. The bacterial and actinomycete isolates were capable of producing auxins, gibberellins and cytokinins and appeared to use fish emulsion as a source of nutrients and precursors for these Plant Growth Regulators( PGR). PGR levels in plants following combined treatments of the bacterial and actinomycete isolates and fish emulsion were found to be significantly enhanced over other treatments. The effect of fish emulsion appeared to be more related to its role as a nutrient base for the bacterial and actinomycete isolates rather than to the increased activity of the general microflora of treated soil. According to the research report this was the first report of fish emulsion as a nutrient base for plant growth promoting rhizobacteria. These results also indicate that the successful treatment can be effective and economical for horticultural production, especially in sandy soils (Khaled A. El-Tarabily: Fish emulsion as a food base for rhizobacteria promoting growth of radish (Raphanus sativus L. var. sativus) in a sandy soil).

At Sea Magic Organics we use mainly shark as input for our liquid fish fertiliser, and use a natural, enzymatic digestive process to hydrolyse the fish. Because we use mainly shark, we have to avoid using the fatty tissues and the livers, as sharks are at the top of the food chain and tend to accumulate the toxins in their livers and in fatty tissue. Our product therefore does not have the thick consistency of other fish emulsions, but as the meat is completely digested the final product is completely liquid and still contains a considerable amount of oil.

The enzymatic digestive process is anaerobic. Because of this the final product has a distinctive anaerobic smell. We are currently working on different microbial cultures that are still anaerobic, but produce a less offensive smell. The process needs to be anaerobic, because in an aerobic process too many nutrients would become volatile, and in an anaerobic environment a substantial content of auxins is preserved/created.

Manure:  

In the 16th and 17th centuries, everything had to be transported by ship and it was also before commercial fertilizer's invention, so large shipments of manure were common. 

It  was shipped dry, because in dry form it weighed a lot less than when wet, but once water (at sea) hit it, it not only became heavier, but the  process of fermentation began again; of which a byproduct is methane  gas. As the stuff was stored below decks in bundles you can see what could (and did) happen. 

Methane  began to build up below decks and the first time someone came below at night with a lantern,

BOOOOM!


Several  ships were destroyed in this manner before it was determined just what was happening.    

After  that, the bundles of manure were always stamped with the term 'Ship High In Transit' on them, which meant for the sailors to stow it high enough off the lower decks so that any water that came into the hold would not touch this volatile cargo and start the production of methane.   


Thus  evolved the term

' S.H.I.T '

(Ship High In Transport) 
, which has come down through the centuries and is in use to this very day.

The Bulwer-Lytton Fiction Contest (BLFC) is a tongue-in-cheek contest held annually and is sponsored by the English Department of San Jose State University in San Jose, California. Entrants are invited "to compose the opening sentence to the worst of all possible novels" – that is, deliberately bad.
The contest was started in 1982 by Professor Scott E. Rice of the English Department at San Jose State University and is named for English novelist and playwright Edward George Bulwer-Lytton, author of the much-quoted first line "It was a dark and stormy night". This opening, from the 1830 novel Paul Clifford, continues floridly:

It was a dark and stormy night; the rain fell in torrents, except at occasional intervals, when it was checked by a violent gust of wind which swept up the streets (for it is in London that our scene lies), rattling along the housetops, and fiercely agitating the scanty flame of the lamps that struggled against the darkness.

The first year of the competition attracted just three entries, but it went public the next year, received media attention, and attracted 10,000 entries.

There are now several subcategories, such as detective fiction, romance novels, Western novels, and purple prose. Sentences that are notable but not quite bad enough to merit the Grand Prize or a category prize are awarded Dishonorable Mentions.

There are 720 roses in the Rose Galleries; many of which have the above series of pictures in their respective Rose Description Page.

So one might avoid the disappointment that the 2 elephants had when their trunks were entwined instead of them each carrying their trunk using their own trunk, and your disappointment of buying a rose to discover that the colour you bought it for is only the case when it has its juvenile flowers; if you look at all the photos of the roses in the respective Rose Description Page!!!!
