Everyone loves a beautiful flower garden, but they don't get to be so beautiful on their own. While many grow them for the enjoyment, as well as for the beauty and sometimes profit, a lot of knowledge and work goes into that beauty! Ask your questions about the propagation, planting, maintenance, trouble shooting, harvesting, enjoyment, and more of flower gardening. Questions about famous flower gardens around the world are welcome, too!

Can you make a candle out of a sampaguita flower?
yes. I have never heard of making a candle out of a flower before. Maybe use the flower as a base and dip it in hot wax over and over again and put a wick in the center. However, it should be possible to extract oil from the flower, retaining it's smell of jasmine. If you had enough of them, you would be able to scent a candle. You could also embed the flower itself in the hot wax and not only get some scent out of it as it burns, but it would look pretty at the side of the candle. A bit more: I would advise letting the flower dry first, otherwise the moisture in the flower may rot inside the wax. You can dry flowers using a food dehydrator, or by placing them in the oven on the top rack, and on the "warm" setting for about 30 minutes, then turn off the oven and let them remain overnight without opening the oven door.

What are the four structures of a complete flower?
Four Parts of a Flower: Typically a flower has four structures. These are attached to the stalk and ordered as four whorls. Starting from the lowest, they are as follows. Calyx: These are the sepals and enclose the flower when it is still a bud. Corolla: These are the petals. Androecium: These are the stamens. Stamens are where pollen is produced. Gynoecium: This is the pistil, the innermost whorl of a flower, composed of units called carpels which is the structure for the egg cells that turn into seeds. In another terminology, one hears the four parts of the flower described as pistil, stamen, petals and sepal. The gynoecium, the innermost whorl is the pistil and consists of an ovary, style and stigma. A pistil one or several carpels fused together. The sticky tip of the pistil, the stigma, is where pollen attaches to the stalk. The style is supportive stalk where the pathway for pollen tubes grow from where the pollen grains attach.

What is an indigenous flower?
Rather than give you a scientific botanical answer, here's a simple one related to human beings that helps to describe this kind of plant or flower. In Australia, the Aboriginal people are indigenous, which means they come from Australia and nowhere else. They are unique to that continent. An indigenous plant is one that is unique to a particular place. For example, the California poppy is indigenous to the state of California. Both aborigines and poppies can live elsewhere if it is to their liking, but their origins remain the same no matter how long they dwell in the new location. However, unless you can prove a plant totally originates in the place that you are, the chances are that they were brought back to that country from another country, by the intrepid botanists of the 16th century to present day. Also many seeds floated across oceans and landed on other shores and eventually became indigenous. It is an interesting subject..for many that we call plants in the Uk for instance, are classed as weeds elsewhere

How do waste products help to grow plants?
That they are rich in nitrogen, which is an essential plant nutrient, is the reason why waste products can be used to help grow plants. Specifically, among the most effective waste products are those from such soil food web members are earthworms. Nitrogen tends to be readily present in the soil, but not often available to plants. It only is available for intake by plant roots if it is in soluble form. Soil food web members such as earthworms take in nitrogen, which is eliminated in soluble form due to processing inside the worm's body.

What eats prickly pear cacti?
All or most types of Galápagos Finches do. When I was in Morocco at a souk (or market) a vendor was selling Prickly Pear fruit which he had piled in a pannier carried by a donkey. When we asked to buy he used a pocket knife to peel the spiny skins off the fruit. The flesh was juicy and sweet and a bit pippy. So to answer your question: people eat Prickly pear cacti.
