HIDALGO COUNTY HERALD FRIDAY, JUNE 27, 2014 5 Grow your own backyard paradise in By MELINDA MYERS Create a backyard escape with the help of container gar- dens. Whether you're .look- ing for a visit to the desert, an English garden or tropi- cal paradise, a few planters can help create the mood. Reduce your workload and increase your enjoy- ment with a bit of planning and proper planting. Select a container with drainage holes and one that mimics the color and feel of the location you are trying to recreate. Use troughs, stone or other containers made from neutral colors when growing succulents. The container should complement, but not over- power the simple'beauty of the desert, plants. Keep things warm and natural ~vhen going for a more tropical feel. Wicker, bamboo and other natural material:s work well with the English cottage setting.

Washburn to compete with NHS Rodeo Team Braiden Washburn, (above left) a 10th grade student at Animas High School, has earned a position on the New Mexico state Na- tional High School rodeo team and will be traveling to Rock Springs, Wyoming, July 13-19, 2014 to compete at the 66th Annual National High School Finals Rodeo (NHSFR). He will compete in the team roping competition with his partner, Derek Runyan, from Silver City, NM. After a year of competing at high school rodeos through- out the state, they earned their position on the team by winning the state team roping title at the finals in Lovington, NM. Braiden is the son of Owen andTriciaWashburn of Animas, NM. Courtesy photo pot these plants. Plant any orchids added to your backyard tropical paradise in a potting mix designed for these plants. Use an orchid mix that has excellent drain- age and aeration, yet retains the moisture and nutrients these beauties need to thrive. Check your planters daily and water thoroughly whenever the top few inches of soil are crumbly and slightly moist. Allow cacti and succulents to go a bit drier. Mulch the soil in tropi- cal, herb, vegetable and an- nual container gardens. Spread a thin layer of shred- ded leaves, evergreen needles or twice shredded bark over the soil surface. Use fine pebbles for cacti and succulents that like things hot and dry. And don't forget about garden accents. A wattle fence and arbor of twigs and branches work well for an English garden setting, while a water feature can enhance a tropical paradise themed garden, and some southwest garden art can com- plete the desert scene you're go- ing for. So start your vacation this year with a trip to the garden center. Invest in a few contain- ers, the right potting mix and plants. Then plant your way to the retreat of your dreams.
