One of my first workable squares was dedicated to landscaping plants. When the squares went in, the path behind the house created a long garden bed that needed to be filled. I bought a Jiffy mini-greenhouse set and got started with my seedlings. Have I mentioned that I become obsessed with things and don’t think them out thoroughly? This particular greenhouse, although mini, held 72 seedlings. I’ve since downsized because having to plant 72 of anything takes some of the joy away. I planted Lupine, Shasta Daisies, Purple Coneflowers, Dahlias, and Salvia. I ran out of room in the square; I was planting them in pots; and some of them didn’t even make it into the ground. The Dahlias bit it pretty quick. The Lupine hung around forever but never bloomed. About half the Salvia survived and most of the Purple Coneflowers, but what really thrived was the Shasta Daisies. These, of course, take two years to bloom. The wait is over; they’re everywhere; and this is what they look like. Booooooo! Still, the seeding frenzy wasn’t a total bust; I’ll show you my Purple Coneflowers tomorrow.
