My Spring Garden

posted by Andrea | 06/4/2010

I decided to be very unproductive today and spend time taking (and editing) lots of picture from my garden!

They turned out great; hear are a few of my favorites:

Wave Petunias

Verbena


Pink Verbena

Chives

Iris

Columbine

Clematis

Snowball Verburnum

It seems that the “fruit” of all my extremely hard labor is finally starting to show…and I’m excited!

We’ll see what turns up the rest of the season.

What are you growing in your garden this spring and summer?

    WELL, YOU’VE CHOSEN SOME WINNING PLANTS! I ALSO LOVE THE “ENDLESS SUMMER” HYDRANGEAS. THEY WILL FLOWER ON BOTH OLD AND NEW WOOD ALL SUMMER. I PUT DOWN ALUMINUM SULPHATE TO MAKE THEM BLUE.
    DON’T FORGET TO PUT “PREEN” ON AFTER YOU HAVE PLANTED YOUR SEEDLINGS. IT SAVES HOURS OF WEEDING LATER. SUNFLOWERS ARE ANOTHER TOUGH ANNUAL, AND FUN TO GROW. I EXPERIMENTED WITH LARGE CONTAINER PLANTINGS THIS YEAR, AND HAVE BEEN VERY PLEASED WITH THE RESULTS. I’M EVEN GROWING PUMPKINS IN A LARGE POT. ANOTHER LARGE POT HAS A ROMA TOMATO PLANT, CILANTRO, AND MILD PEPPERS, FOR SALSA. I GET TOMATOES MUCH EARLIER IN THE BIG POT BECAUSE THE SOIL WARMS UP SO MUCH FASTER. ALSO, USE THE MOISTURE CONTROL POTTING MIX TO HOLD THE MOISTURE IN YOUR BASKETS AND POTS LONGER THAN ORDINARY POTTING MIX.

    Thanks for the tips. I actually have a few hydrangeas in my front yard…and I always use Preen!
