I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.
I have heard a few reports from the Central Ohio Home and Garden Show and so far the reports have been positive.
Now I am all pumped up to attend tomorrow.
I did get some more seeds sown indoors last week. I am going to mention them here so I will have a record of them for my winners and bummers list. LOL!
If they do not germinate it is usually my fault but I am one stubborn gardener and hate to let a teeny tiny seed get the best of me. But there are times when I have gotten seeds from certain companies that have not done as well as other companies. I keep records in my seed logs and if after all my efforts they just do not do well I have the name of that company where I purchased them and do not buy from them again. I am sure you all have had similar results with seeds and even with buying some plants.
Anyway, here are the seeds I sowed last week.
By next spring these should be blooming for me.
Although it is hard for me to wait on seed grown perennials to come to maturity lets face it seeds are cheaper and you get a bunch of flowers from them to stick all around the garden or to pass along to other gardeners.
A Bellflower mixture was also sown so when ever these bloom it is going to be a surprise on the colors that germinated. All three colors well fit into my garden so it really does not matter much which grows.
Chaenarrhinum “Summer Skies”
This is completely new to me and I have not grown it before so I do not know what to expect with this annual. I thought it would look pretty spreading out of the sides in some of my containers.
In April I plan to sow a Torenia “Kauai” mixture for some shady containers.
Impatiens and some vegetables will also be sown then to later put out in the garden the last of May. The weather has been nice this year to tempt me to try to get them out earlier but here in Ohio the weather changes all the time so I will hold off no matter if they have moved our zone 5b to a 6a zone.
The petunias and geraniums have sprouted indoors and are doing very well.
So some gardening has been done and my hands have been into the soil but what I really want is to get outdoors and get to work on the flower beds. It will not be much longer now since February is at an end. For the shortest month this has seemed the longest somehow. So I am glad to kiss February goodbye this week.
Everyone have a great week and…..
