Well some of the seeds that were sown have germinated
and are doing very well. It is so good to see things growing
again and my fingers are crossed that they will continue to
do so.I do not have the best record when it comes to the
germination and transplanting of plants.
Some of the old faithfuls that are growing are a mixture
of Impatiens,which are a staple for the many shady areas
around the house, a mix of Verbena and Duchess Light Blue
Rose Queen Diascia for the hanging baskets and window boxes.
I have also Blue & White Lobelia, Yellow Angel Trumpets and
I may have to give up on the Osteospurmum because I do
not have much luck in germinating them.
The one in the basement over wintering is doing fine
so I will at least have one for the Spring.
Some new plants that I am trying this year is Red Easy Wave
Petunia, mixed Pentas and the Black Velvet Rose Geraniums.
I am excited about the Black Velvet series of Geraniums because of
the dark leaves combined with the Rose colored Geranium.
Also new for me and growing are:
Crescendo Mix Primrose
I have been told that Heliotrope has a great fragrance.
Regatta Rose Lobelia
I just fell in love with the color of this Lobelia.
I have many more seeds to get sowed and have determined
to get it done tomorrow. Amongst which are seeds saved from
tall Phlox, Stella de Ora Lily, Armeria, Gladioli, and some more
Some of the seeds and plants that I have just about given up on
ever doing well for me are:
Osteospurmum, Mustead Lavender, Delphinium, Larkspur and
Moon flower vines, all of which I would dearly love to grow.
My thumb is brown when it comes to germinating and
