Outdoor Flowers 2017

Ginger's picture

I bought pansies this year, instead of growing them from seed... From seed, I need to start them at New Year's, and run growlights for a couple months for them alone. Just didn't bother this year.

Flowers I grew from seed: impatiens, gazanias.

I didn't get a picture of it, but apparently a volunteer hollyhock will bloom this year, too. Calibrachoa and snapdragons and columbine volunteer in the garden. I dug out some calis from the railing planters and put them in 6-packs to grow up in safety.

Not many pansies left, but

Not many pansies left, but lots of lovely volunteer flowers filling in - hollyhock, many calibrachoa, a couple vinca, plus the impatiens and  gazanias I grew from seed, and a few things I bought. This year's hollyhock is shell pink again. Getting compliments on the flowers. The middle of the garden bed still looks a bit barren from the pea season's end a couple weeks ago.

It's been a rough season. But

It's been a rough season. But the pansies are still going. The volunteer calibrachoa have started to bloom. A volunteer hollyhock will apparently be shell pink again (hasn't bloomed yet).
