A lady is coming over to help me with the garden and planters in a few minutes.
New 13:46
got extra lobelia this year
New 13:52
Annual or perennial lobelia?
New 13:53
I love the dark blue annuals...
New 13:54
The red perennials, too, though they are short lived....
New 13:55
I tried the perennial blue, with the unfortunate name (Lobelia siphilitica), but it turned out white....
New 14:16
I'm not familiar with perenial lobelia. The blue is so common, but still spectacular. I'm looking for colour in my planters. Also it flowers for a long time. It's semi arid here, so not very plant friendly.
New 14:16
It's also hard to buy plants here. There's only a couple of nurseries and they're not that good.
New 14:50
You can always buy stuff online..

Fantastic if you're into roses and other kinds of shrubs
New 14:53
New 14:53
If you're into herbs and stuff

And for next year, you can sign up for Canning Perennials

They send really big plants....
New 14:54
And of course Botanus in BC
New 14:55
Their good with bulbs..
New 15:09
If you have a lot sun..and like poppies... you can buy a bunch of different varieties and sprinkle them in the dead of winter....
New 15:09
You'll be quite surprised...
New 15:09
Sorry Ole.... another obsession..... plants...
New 15:24
We have such a thick blanket of purple lupin going up and down our section of our road that we're wondering if some neighbor tossed seeds out along their walking route.
New 15:25
OR MAYBE it's the last gasp of a plant in a drought year
New 15:58
Yeah I'm thinking of something bigger online. Also geraniums. But that's another story. Right now it's bedding plants for planters.
New 16:45
I'm assuming by geraniums, you mean pelargoniums (annual)?
New 17:09
yes zonals - but they're not annual
New 17:10
I'll probably have to get seeds, but I'd really like plants. The one on the top of my list is inqinans.
New 17:12
pelargoniums is quite a specialty and plant stores don't seem to know about them
New 17:12
they just have some generic "geranium" and don't even know the name of the hybrid.
New 20:20
Surely their annuals in your gardening zone?
New 20:21
they're
New 20:21
I once tried to obtain a rare pelargonium which flowered in fall
New 20:21
Fragrant flowers
New 20:21
I have a few fragrant ones...
New 20:22
Rose scented
New 20:22
every time I brush against them... I feel it's June....(roses flower in mid June over here)
New 20:48
I've had a number of fragrant pelargoniums over the years. It's an oldfashioned plant and was a standard houseplant in Denmark for my grandparents generation.
New 20:48
usually called rose geranium
New 20:49
some pelargoniums are more cactus like with stems that are thicker than the foilage
New 20:50
Oh I see, what you mean by annuals. Yes, they don't winter outside. My interest in them is inside wehere they go for many years.
