I managed to plant all the flowers John brought home from his brother’s greenhouse. He spent 3 weekends helping with watering and other dubious tasks. I must say, I am quite pleased. With all the rain we have had in the past week or so, everything is lush and green. I barely even had to water in the pots as rain fell almost immediately after I finished.
I takes a lot of time and thought to figure out which plants to put together into which pots. And then I wonder if the flowers will keep blooming in the places I put them. Our yard is quite mature, and some of my pot spots don’t get 6 hours of sun. I always have to watch them carefully to get their full potential. If they don’t do well in their original places, I move them to more appropriate spots. Of course, my deck is very shaded and I am able to grow at least 2 flats of impatience around it. This year they were quite leggy and I had to cut them back. I planted them only 3 days ago and they are already flowering. Such healthy plants… Here are the pictures.
