Among the vegetable container bins, we used a few for flowers this year. Thanks to the following two packages that did not come up, we’ve reseeded that empty bin with more turnip seeds.
On the side of Mom’s house, we also tried to plant the following package of flower seeds, but they did not come up either.
The following pictures are of Benary’s Giant Zinnia’s flowers which are doing really well both in a bin at Mom’s and in a bed in front of Grandma’s house. Because they have not flowered yet, I’ve included a picture of what they should look like from the Seed Savers website where we purchased them.
They are going to be gorgeous when they do flower!
Two types of Clematis blooms ready to blossom as well as multiple buds ready to bloom as well….
Johnny Jump Ups:
These were planted from seed too and we’re unsure as to how big they will get or what they will look like. We have lost the seed package and a google search shows them looking like this….
I can’t say that our plants coming up look like this, but we will see.
We’re calling the flower gardens a poorer success because only 50% of the flower seeds we planted are coming up. The rest of the flowers that are doing so well, have been established for 2+ years now and belong either to Mom or Grandma and can’t really be counted as part of our successes.
Bring on the Bees!
