What new flowers are you planting in your Potager this year?
I got some old-fashioned flower seeds in a trade that I have been very anxious to grow. It's called, "Kiss-Me-Over-The-Garden-Gate". Just the name brings up images from Victorian days, doesn't it? What a great name!
Anyone grow this? I am wondering how it will do in hot and often humid Oklahoma summers in full sun? How about on the north side of a south fence so it's feet would be in the shade and would stay more moist and cool, but the leaves and flowers would grow up toward the sun and hopefully hang over the garden fence by the gate??? :)
I also got some Helenium seeds in another trade and I am so anxious to grow them. Beautiful, beautiful flowers! Many English and Irish Cottage gardens have them. I think they would be lovely in with veggies and herbs in the Potager, too, maybe near Lamb's Ears.
These will be my two new flowers to grow this year in my Potager.
