Coleus & Snapdragons & Lettuce

Around August 20th, I planted coleus and snapdragons in a Park Starts block, set between my minis. These plugs are similar to the AG3/6 bound-peat sponges, and work as replacement sponges. At that time (and maybe still not in stock at this time), there was no such thing as a Master Gardener kit for the mini. Anyway, these are slow-growing ornamentals, so wanted to keep my old flower garden until the replacement plants grew a bit.

The lettuce gardens really have nothing to do with the coleus & snapdragons, except proximity. I've grown a lot of lettuce gardens, though.

Toy Choi & Flower Cuttings

I planted these right before going on vacation - toy choi (a 5" pak choi) to the left, and cuttings from my Pandora's Box pansy (grown from seed and planted outside) and twinkle phlox (from my English Cottage Garden - my fave of those flowers). To my amazement, this is what they looked like when I got back from vacation - the pansy flowered! These are just shy of two weeks old.
