Love Lowes garden dept! they have such a variety and take good care of the plants too. Im thinking of getting some bareroot lilacs at TSC, they are small, but you get two for 4.99, I have no experience w/ these, do they grow fast?
Today I planted 5 Thompson Seedless grapevines. Tomorrow hopefully I will have my raised beds realigned, and can start getting the soil ready, before this next rainstorm. Chickens helped out a lot by eating hundreds of grubs and other bugs :)
I have a favorite, its called Mary Rose, (my avatar) also have many of the ones you have, some just planted but not enjoyed last year because the deer discovered them!!!! :( I used to have iris all up our front drive as a child, and loved iris time, they were ice blue with dark purple...
I have a Cecil Brunner growing on a trellis on the front of my house, I love it! Huge rain and wind storms here too,,,,Im glad the cherry trees arent blooming, my neighbor has hundreds and last year the crop was ruined. I want more fruit trees!!!
Raining here too, so much for planting my grapes and plum tree, still a few left bareroot at Lowes! I dont think youre any crazier than someone who still hasnt painted their coop that was built last May...:lol:
thank you, that is just gorgeous, you did an amazing job in the desert! i wish we had that blue sky here...cold fog is just not very motivating, its supposed to end today though! then I can get to the garden bed renovating :D
I have a Cecil Brunner, its really worry free and pretty flowers. I would love to see a pic of those Iris if you have one...;) Tomorrow Im planting more lettuce.
I would like a bigger garden this year, want to extend out into the pasture where the grass doesnt get watered anyway. Also...
I think theyre happiest outdoors in the ground, I couldnt make mine do anything inside, maybe not enough direct light...anyway they went berserk once I put them in the ground in full sun, or at least morning sun.
I planted myself into my truck and drove half an hour up the hill to get out of this cold miserable valley fog! I got my indoor starting trays though and will start some early tomatoes, peppers, and some kind of flowers probably tomorrow! Love this thread ;)
