Looking around my complex, it’s finally evident that Spring is putting her roots down. I thought I would share a few of the things happening around my own garden. Or should I call it… container city? More about that another time. Today it’s all about a few of the first Spring plants bursting forth.
First up is the Rhubarb. Looks like I might actually get to eat some of it this year. You have to be patient when you plant one of these as you can’t harvest any of the stalks until the second year or it doesn’t develop a healthy root system. They like acidic soil, as do my Dwarf Blueberries, so I paired them up in a huge old galvanized wash tub.
I have several bulb planters but it looks like the one with the Centanees Daffodils is going to steal the show. That orange and yellow combo is a real eye catcher. I offset the colour with some blue Grape Hyacinth and blue Violas.
And last but definitely not least, the plant that has been a beauty all winter, Pink Frost. Still going strong. Once the blooms are done, I will still have some really neat looking leaves as it is an evergreen plant.
All my containers are planted up with my favorite plants, a mix of potting soil and sea soil, and worm castings. All purchased from Potters of course!
