in my garden right now

poorbutroserich(Nashville 7a)March 30, 2014

Hello. I'm attaching a photo of my cutting ghetto of HTs. This is behind my garage. On the left you can see my HPs past the AC and some of the stuff I wintersowed.
If you look to the left of the lovely brick-0-blocks you can see gallon pots of stuff I got half price last fall and overwintered.
Lots of Palace Purple, Cranesbills, Tickseed, Phlox, Nepeta, Thyme...
In the foreground left is my new fan trellis...going to send Msr. Paul Lede up that one. In the foreground to the right is one of three small cherry trees I have.
I have some other photos I will put on photobucket and share the link.
New Austins on multiflora are in the foreground too. Golden Celebration, Charlotte, Tamora, Munstead Wood.

Oh, yes, full of life and promise! Would love to see pictures when everything is blooming, too.

Spring is such a grand time, Susan. Sounds like everything fared well through your winter? Gean

Yes, it's definitely amazing to watch everything come to life from what were only dead brown sticks two days ago...2 days of rain and weather in the 60s always brings about the blooms.
Gean, I was surprised at how well most of my roses did. One Safrano had to be cut way back. Most of the 2Gs I got from ARE in October died or had to be cut way back. I think I've lost Cramoisi Superieur....Lady Hillingdon went...
I'm just plunging ahead.
How about your gardens?

Boy I sure hope so! I wish I were this passionate cleaning house and exercising!
Will post more when I get blooms.

You've got a great location for your pot nursery. Mine rambles along my driveway. Fingers crossed for tender beauties! Carol

Thanks! I got lucky with that spot! Mine were all in my driveway last year (and likely that's where the once bloomers shall return after their show).

hi, Susan,
Plunging ahead is exactly right.

My only casualty was the tea rose, Devoniensis, which I cut back after the top died. It is now coming back from the roots for the second time - it "died" once before a couple of years ago. Gotta love that rose, even if it may never get more than 8 inches high. I may dig it up and put it into a pot in the greenhouse. I think it would be happier there. Did I tell you I got a greenhouse! Just a little one, but boy, it's great having a warm spot.

The dianthus and cornflower seeds you sent I wintersowed and they're going gangbusters! Thank you for them. :) Gean
