I grow a lot of different flowers, but I purchased more perennials: 2 varieties of carnations (Dianthus), sweet peas (Lathyrus odomtus), flowers for rock garden, monarda (Monarda), blue bells (Campanula), columbina mix (Aquilegia), veronica blue.
As I got a gift, ‘The Vertical gardening’ book, I’ve bought also some nasturtium (Tropaeolum) seed.
Last fall I told myself: I would not buy gladioli and dahlias, because it's hard to keep them in winter. But again, I could not pass by the bulbs. Here are the white gladioli (Gladiolus), red crocosmia (Crocosmia) and different dahlias!
First I picked the seeds of tomatoes, zucchini (yellow), beans (yellow) and cucumbers.
If the summer is cool and often rains, the insects fly rarely and pollinate poorly. So I’ve chosen varieties of pollinated cucumbers and of a hybrid F1, that doesn’t need to be pollinated.
Tomatoes are grown only in the greenhouse, because at the end of summer might be cold at night. I picked seeds of small tomatoes. What else is important: these tomatoes are not high and are suitable for a small greenhouse.
I usually have some beds with carrot, beet and lettuce. I love to cook traditional Russian soup ( borscht ) with some beets, carrots and potatoes. So I’ve bought 3 packs of beet seed, round and long ones and also herb seeds: basil, dill, parsley, celery. But I will sow them all
a little, near my kitchen.
Now I need to plan where I'll plant and sow all my purchases!
But there is still time, spring will come at the end of March here.
What are you, my friends-loggers, going to sow and to plant in your gardens?
