Just curious - how are your annuals doing?
I had trouble finding decent-looking annuals this spring, so I feel like I started out behind the 8-ball to begin with. I did, a few weeks after buying some, find a garden center with some great looking stuff, and bought another round, so I felt a bit more confident.
But now the annuals in my pots aren't looking so great. Some are doing well, and some okay, and some look exactly the same as they did when I planted them in June. And then there are a few that are eaten and brown and scrawny. I have few in the ground as well, but they aren't doing much better. Overall it just doesn't seem to be a good year for them.
I'm not talking so much about rudbeckias and cosmos and zinnias, etc., - those I start from seed and put out in the gardens and they are doing well. But I guess I mean more of the typical pot-on-the-front-steps kind of plants - petunias, geraniums, ageratum, dianthus, lobelia, begonia sweet potato vine - you get the idea.
My marigolds, on the other hand, are spectacular :)
Just wondering... oh, and pictures are always appreciated!
P.S. Sure do miss my impatiens! :(
