The last few

Here are a few pictures of what was flowering in my garden today.

Abelmoshus Manihot just opened. If this warm weather stays around for a while as predicted maybe I'll be able to harvest some seeds from it.


I started this ROS from seed 2 years ago. It has finally flowered. Anyone know which one it is?


Simply Love Hibiscus is always nice.

Very nice! There's a possibility of the "F" word here this weekend. Hope not. :(

RE: The last few

My favourite is the Simply Love Hibiscus. Your picture looks much nicer than the one on the Veseys website.

Did you start them from seed in the house? If so, would it be difficult for someone who's only started from seed in the house once, and it was marigolds?

RE: The last few

When I grew it the first time I started inside under grow lights. I planted that one in the garden and it always reseeded. Then we moved and I wanted another one. Since they reseed so well, I winter sowed it. I imagine you could actually plant the seeds directly to. I prefer to w/s because I can then control the environment and keep mice/rabbits or other pests away from the seedling. If you want some seeds, I will be putting up a trade list soon and I have some.
