posticon Busy day of planting and transplanting!


Today was a day to play in the dirt. DH and I planted 10 cladium bulbs (the package said there were 8, but we got 10!)

Planted 5 Lily bulbs
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--

One package of Enlgish Daisies (a perennial), in mixed colors. One package of Lubella, in blue. One package of stemmed Phlox in mixed colors. The English Daisies went into one of the flower beds in front of the porch, the Lubella and Phlox went into a redwood planter (they're annuals).

Then, we transplanted 2 Scheffleras and my big Aloe, and pulled up some of the babies under the big Aloe, and repotted those...

It's been a really good day, and we got a lot accomplished!

Re: Busy day of planting and transplanting!


Today, DH got at least the lettuce bed planted! As well as 2 fig tree cuttings from a fig tree my Dad had grown. His was HUGE, and had the BEST figs. The tornado of April 27, 2011 took the tree, and what was left of it was bulldozed down when we had the property cleared. We had got the cuttings 2 weeks before the tornado. We got 3 cuttings, and all 3 are growing [sign in to see URL] have been in pots for almost a year! DH planted 2 of them in the same spot, and one of them already has a single fig on it and the tree isn't but maybe 4-6 inches tall!!!! I'm SO happy!!

I cut off some dead branches from 2 rose bushes, so hopefully they'll do better now. I also weeded around them.

I got my herb stakes laminated and [sign in to see URL]'m happy with how they turned out. I'll eventually get the herbs [sign in to see URL] may get done next week, if I have time.

Re: Busy day of planting and transplanting!


Queeny, we're sure hoping we get some good color. I love the pinks, purples and blues, but we needed something really vibrant to just kind of showcase certain areas. We planted some caladium and red lilies on either side of the porch, then the remainder of the caladium, we put out next to the arched trellis, where my Stargazer Lilies and some other stuff are [sign in to see URL] for some color variety. Really hope they all come up and look good where we put them.

Yes, getting my hands in the dirt is theraputic for [sign in to see URL] sure! It's as energizing for me as being in the sunshine is.

Congrats!!! emoticon

I seriously miss having a garden. Hopefully we'll be buying a place soon and then I can garden to my hearts content.

In the meantime, I am filling just about every container I can find with soil for planting in the next month.

Re: Busy day of planting and transplanting!


Curious, if I ever had to live where I can't have an actual flower garden, or flower beds, I'd have to do some kind of container [sign in to see URL] least for flowers.

I'd most likely also do a few veggie [sign in to see URL], beans (one plant each), radishes, strawberries (something I've never grown, but want to)
And, of course my herbs! GOTTA have my herbs. Even if all I use them for is to make the house smell [sign in to see URL].

Queeny, I think so, too. I have a LOT of green in the yard, some purple, pink, yellow, [sign in to see URL] not a whole lot of red, so these will really brighten things up some, I think.

Looking good! I need to get some caladiums. I haven't ever grown them at this house, but I really do love them. It was something my mom always had tons of growing up - all varieties you can imagine. She still does it at the farm. I just love them!

Re: Busy day of planting and transplanting!


I have some Caladiums that are sort of purple on one side of the [sign in to see URL] we planted some of the Blaze there, as [sign in to see URL] put most of the Blaze on the other side of the porch, where I have some Astilbes (that the frost also got :angry: ) a hosta, some bumble bee lilies and something [sign in to see URL]'t [sign in to see URL], thankfully none of that had come up yet when we had the frost so I think it's all OK.

If these Caladium do OK, I may see about getting some more for some of the other areas where I'd like to have something easy to grow.
