As posted earlier, not all of the bulbs that I re-set last year came up. Actually, most of them came up, but less than half bloomed this year! Does anyone know if it's possible that I traumatized them in the move and that they'll recover in a year or two? It seems like I remember reading that somewhere. Or maybe I planted them too deep? Anyway, lots of green, but not a lot of blossoms. Here's pictures of some of the things blooming, though.
And my forget-me-nots are AWESOME! I wouldn't mind if they took over my flower beds. I remember my Grandma having lots of forget-me-nots and I loved them!
G. bought some tomato plants at his school's Ecology Club plant sale, and since the remodeling isn't done in back and I don't want to risk planting something and having siding dropped on it, I thought I'd put the tomatoes out front--in the middle of the flower. We'll see how that works!
Unfortunately, that one truly invasive, awful plant that I can't identify to save my life, poked through all the paper I laid down under the mulch :( so I wasted three bags of mulch and it's still coming up! I even sprayed it with Brush-B-Gone, which is supposed to kill, well, BRUSH! It still didn't work.
Finally, I transplanted mint, too. I see two plants came up. I think I must be the only person in the world who can't grow mint! Everyone else calls it invasive, but I'd love for it to take over around my patio. No luck...
