I really love moss roses because they are one of the easiest pest and disease free flowers a person could grow. They are easily started from seeds,need full sun and moist well drained soil. I just sprinkle the seeds over the soil since they are so tiny during spring and water in lightly pressing them in. I will share more of these later.
The Hurricane wasn’t as bad as we thought. All it did was make a mess in our garden and I am so thankful for the fact our lights stayed on and we didn’t get flooded out. In 2016 I lost all my plants to a flood and now I am working on restoring my losses by growing seedlings. I have plants that are survivors of this climate and bad weather to use for the pollen and pod parents. This will ensure that I have plants to enjoy for years to come.
Red Sunflowers in bloom
I am glad I supported the sunflowers because they made it just fine and are blooming this week! These sunflowers are some kind of autumn mix and I saved seeds from one or two plants with multiple budding and I hope to get more plants like this. We will see in the next week or so if I get some nice multi bud sunflowers. I will update the sunflowers again later. I will conclude with a picture of one of our daylily beds. I enjoy the iris in early spring, daylilies in spring and early summer and then caladiums and elephant ears with perhaps a few annual plantings for rest of the year.
