We are lucky to have beautiful perennials that our home’s previous owner tended to so I didn’t do much last year by way of flowers.
Trying some plants this year though. Nothing better than learning more about plants than buying them and experimenting, so for this year I planted hollyhock bulbs around the front perimeter of the house. Will be adding some oriental/asiatic lilies and gladiolus bulbs soon as well.
From seed, I started on 4/3:
- Marigold – 2 varieties, soaked and potted
- American poppy
- Morning glory – most excited about this enchanting flower. It’s already germinated, in 2 days
- columbine mixed colors
