new to this gardening passion
Tonight I cut some flowers for my mother in law. I haven't cut flowers since I took a rose to my fifth grade teacher. We recently moved out to the country (a temporary home) on my M-I-L's lot. I cut some bright yellow daises(those bushes so many people here seem to hate), purple irises and summer(?) snowflakes, along with some asparagus fern, love-in-a-mist and some ferny-weed-thing. I don't know what of it will last, for how long BUT--OH MY GOSH--It was so fun!!
Now the question-- It gets very hot here and our house is "coming" in about 2 weeks I have no garden- (except wild grapes and river willow oh yeah-elderberry) but want to start one right off. What would you guys recommend that would do well in my summer heat? or do I just have to wait till next year. We were in the 80's this week but today it was "cold" again (65 or so). Our property is on the St. John's river in the central Valley of CA.
Thanks so much,
