Awww, ya gotta collect some see off those sweet peas and send me some!

On your daylily, I have never seen that one before, but it sure is lovely.; See those green pods forming on it? Those are the seed pods. Watch them and you can collect some seeds off of it and have a brand new hybrid. It would be an open pollinated daylily hybrid, of no name more than likely crossed with your other daylilies in the garden. Anyway, when the pod is more mature, pick them...they should be abit larger and the pod will crack. You need to get them at the time of if not just before the cracking otherwise they will fall into your garden and grow later and you will have new plants in your old clump! I have a ton of Stella de oro that I need to pick.


This is my coleus cuttings! Funny, I got a pair! LOL!

You can take paperbags and put the pods in to dry them and put them in your GPS. When they are thoroughly dry, plant them. I usueally plant them in the next season in the spring. But if I do that then I have to store the seeds so the meeces do not eat them.

Man, you should see KONG now. That coleus is sporting 3 flower spike stems! It is huge! I will have to take my boots and put them together to compare the sizes for you! The ones in the boots are the smaller variety of coleus. remind me later to do that...right now I gotta get to the office, sheesh I am soo behind!

Terri - you are getting to be quite the expert at provided links for us to morph to LoL.
now, those crocosmias look like they are ready to be transferred from the yard to vase (hint, hint)

achillea - Cherry queen, I think. Terri - I had some white ones in my white planter, but they got too aggressive, so I had to pull them out. But, if you have lots of room in your new white garden, that may be a good choice if you don't have any already.

Blossom, what is that wire thingy by the coleus display, is it for topiary?

Pretty Echinacea Dianne, I still have one alive with some leaves on it!
Thanks for the Achillea suggestion, I used to have a yellow one but not any more. I'm not keen on the smell!
The new flower bed I'm planning isn't going to be that big, but it will be an Island bed, so I'm looking for some white flowering plants with a nice fragrance when you walk all the way around it! We can dream ... lol

These white Nicotiana smell so nice!

Thanks Sally, here is a new open pollinated seedling daylily.. I think its parent was a daylily called Dallas Star hence the lavender color and the cross parent was a daylily called Frans Hall giving it the bi-color petals. Frans Hall is yellow and rust... but it is lovely. I hope it is prolific. It will be a new hybrid then in the future fromour garden to which I can name myself and register if so inclined! Right now its a one of a kind

Sally, do show us your african violets! They sound awesome. I tried doing them once and did not have the green thumb for them. That was in our old farm house. Maybe one day I will try again. But right now.. too many other plants going on. I am going to try to winter over some of my wax begonias and coleus as houseplants this year, but I am not sure what kind of luck I am gonna have in the livingroom!. I also have spider plants and baby sunroses and christmas cactus in baskets that I hope I can salvage througe to the spring!

My daylilies are what does the best here in my lil flood plain! I have been collecting them and trading them for 20 some odd years! I am afraid it is a serious addiction!

I need to get back the my GPS and do some divides. Pop in on my thread there if you have the time. We are on part 4!

Well Sally tired or not they and you are awesome! I like the violets, I think though my water here does not like them. It is high in iron and calcium, very very hard.

Anyway, love that name of that one...Sunlit Sugar Plum, that is catchy!

I have a two year old seedling un-named open pollinated hybrid that is out of Frans hall again. and its color is lovely. Sorry to say the pic here does it no justice. It is a lovely pastel bi-color. I love Frans hHall for crossing on other hybrids for its bicolor genes!

I even have a tiny Frans hall that has Stella De oro charactoristics in that the plant is dwarf, but the color is Frans!

The one in the pic below is quite tall. I am glad it is showing promis to be a good multiplier.

Thanks Sally, got more coming. Been doing this for years!

I was disapointed in my overall dayliles bloom this season. We had a very cold winter and I think the bloom was about half down on a better year. I did have some great performers but still over all the garden was lacking. Then of course, it was a horrible year for weeds.

Last season I feel the bloom was better. But this year too, between the standing water for so long, that did not help.

This is Connie Sue, she did the best she has done ever. But was overcome with grass.

A much better shot of Orange Vols...however, the thing in real life has a more yellowish glow to the orange. Very brite and very vivid!

Sally I think some of the hybridizers have an amazing sense of humour when it comes to naming their daylilies! I would have a terrible time doing that!

This little cutie is called Double Almond. Its a really lush golden brassy color in real life!

Every year! I make cuttings from the ones in the ground and pull up the old plants. I also cut back the ones in pots that go in the greenhouse and root those too. I have coleus in several places as I have quite a few shade beds. The ones I posted here are all in my actual "Coleus Bed" (except for the ones by the pond)

BB I believe that of all of the daylilies Double Bourbon is now my favorite.
Yardqueen your coleus looks so healthy and happy, mine end up all eaten up and dirty looking what is your secret.
Morning glories LOL, they and the trumpet vine are the two plants I wish I had never introduced into my property, I have overcome with both and just can't rid either of them.
I heard on 60 mins. or something that morning glory seeds are now the new marijuana plant or something, that there is something in the seeds to make one "happy land" or something and that a lot of vendors are being bought out? Anyone else heard anything about that?

Here is a link to the article that says chewing the seeds releases an LSD type effect.

Sorry about last night, and not replying... We had rain REAL RAIN and my internet tower got struck by lightning or something and it was out till now! We did get a fabulous rain though. I would say at least 2 inches or more! I had several pots blown over!

Anyway blossum, I am about to do a few coleus cuttings myself. Some of the ones in front of the pond are too tall! I have grown them in the "Plant room" of my house before. That is where we wintered stuff over before I got my greenhouse. Keep an eye out for mealy bugs, though...

Don't know about the morning glory seeds... I will look at your article, but I always thought they were poisonous. Never did LSD or Marijuana so I won't do the morning glories either! LOL

yardqueen, those are stunning.

I never did the druggie things either. Got my kicks in other ways. If I wanted to see purdy colours I yanked out the ole kodachrome and shot them. Been a fetish ever since HS. There sure are a lot of plants out there thought that should be in the class of MJ. ... or worse. Some can kill you if you do stupid with them.

This is for sure.. LOVE IS.

I like your glad BTW!! yummy!


Hmmm mealy worms... I always thought it was white flies to look out for. Well, I am gonna put them under lights on my plant stands and what comes in the spring will be what comes if it dont get tossed before then! I ma gonna have a bucnh to bring in... gads. I got baskets up the kazooo!

Silly doggies, well hope it helped the tummies, ha. My poodle used to pick tomatoes from the vines, the small ones. She saw me do it and figured, hum, I can do that! ha. I never minded a bit.

I did mind a little when she tried to pick peas. They are hard to get off of the vine, so she would PULL... messed the vine up a bit. That's ok. I knew one day I would wish I could watch her do that again.

She lived to be 14. Doggies are wonderful.

Well, here is my miscanthus gigantus.. the privy fence is 6ft... Id say mines gonna be 14 at the plume! Got a long way to go before it blossoms. We put it there to hide that ugly fence. The fence is not ours and it is hideous

hey, Terri - if you are letting any of those godetia go to seed, can I have some, pleeeasse?? I would love to try growing them again.
Do you want any purple larkspur seed? It may have been years since I have sent any mail to London - we had an Englishman visiting us for a year years ago, but can't remember if I ever mailed him anything.

Sorry - no plants on your wish list growing in my yard except for a 4 inch pot of Liatrus with only leaves. Nasturtiums are all gone for the season. I have pretty much restricted my plantings to either cut flowers or flowers with fragrance, and fruit trees. Not quite a monoculture, but not a huge variety. Tuberose is almost opening, though. and still some gardenias and some Meyers lemon blooms with wonderful scents wafting throughout the backyard. Naked ladies are up!! Watch for them in the yard and vase thread...

Blossom - do you eat the young loofah? They are a common Chinese vegetable, and my mon used to grow them, but the critters always ate them before she can pick them so she gave up. I loved eating them.

Ok, I can do more laitris and trumpet vines.. but thats all I got of your other requests!!

Gonna try yo plant some ornamental kale.. dont know if it will be too late to do it or not. Never tried it this late.

Here first though is the wisteria. It has a few lonely blooms and is sporting beans too!

OOOObah dioooo...

Hi Dianne, I'll collect some seeds for you and any others if there's anything anyone wants from my garden. I've never done a seed swap thingy..LoL!
I didn't know you could eat loofahs or loofas? learn something new here everyday!
Sounds lovely and fragrant in you garden Dianne, may we see the Gardenias and lemon blooms please?
Thank you, I'd like some of your purple Larkspur, it does well for you. The ones I bought from the lottie shop were very disapointing!

Thanks Blossom, I bought a trumpet vine once, it was lovely but it died over winter!

Ok, here are my four oclocks in a huge pot.. Some of the other flowers in the pic are some gomphrena in the pots below the 4 oclock, they have petunias in them but I just sheared the petunias back so I cut all the blooms off for the next wave of blooms to come.

Hi Steven, You've got a colourful garden, it looks great!
So many lovlies there, what is the one growing up the trellis? Are they Nasturtiums in your hanging basket? I've fallen in love with Nicotianna this year, the scent in the evening is so nice! what veggies are you growing?
The Amaranthus has tassles... lol. this one is quite small.

Thanks Blossom!


Terri, On the trellis is Clematis 'Chantilly' it's a very soft pink/lavender...here's a link http://www.raymondevisonclematis.com/main/product.asp?productId=13# . Ooo, I never noticed that site was British so I guess you could order from them! This ones a favorite of mine http://www.raymondevisonclematis.com/main/product.asp?productID=18 . And yes, those are Nasturtiums in the basket...the one on the right is called 'Copper Sunset' and the red and the yellow(in the back) are from seeds I picked up at the dollar store called 'Jewel Mix'. Next year I really want to try the fragrant red nicotianna :)
We've got to large tubs planted with veggies and we have: 3 Arkansas Traveler Tomatoes , 4 or 5 Cucumbers, 1 Black Russian plum tomato, 3 King of the North red peppers, we got our seeds mixed up and ended up with only one bush bean and also have Oriental Breeze Basil, Dill, Cracker Jack Marigolds and Pot Marigolds. The tubs are massively overgrown :)

Oh, I love your Asters Terri! Mine are in a window box and look awful :( Possibly diseased or something...maybe if I put them in their own planter they'll pick up(?). Actually all your plants look really healthy! And love the Morning Glories, I miss those ones. I used to have them but shouldn't here because it would be awful if they escaped into the meadow. I suppose I could deadhead each bloom...hahahaha

Hi Steven!
Is there a fragrant red? interesting!! I love the Nasturtiums in your basket. Nice Clematis, they will look great growing up that trellis. My Asters were looking awful until last week, then suddenly the leaves started to look healthier and now they are flowering. Don't give up on them yet..lol!

Sally, will you take your herb planters? they all look so fresh, almost makes you want to cook!!

Wow, Nice Zinnia Terri! I just saw the red Nicotian earlier...ah ha, here's the link http://summerhillseeds.com/nicotiana-perfume-red-new-for-2009-p-749.html?cPath=27...I just looked and e-seeds has a bunch as well and they're in the UK, plu they send free seeds! http://www.eseeds.com/c-54-nemesia-to-nolana.aspx?pagenum=3 . A number of years ago we had red ones that looked grew just like the white ones except for the colour. I'm not a fan of the newer dwarf ones, they seem to lack fragrance. Thanks, I'm glad you like my basket, I haven't been sure about it lately so thank-you! We actualy just got the one Clematis but I saw the red one on the web and really like it :) So your Asters did the some thing it sounds like? Cool, so maybe mine aren't defective after all! YAY!

We have moved a lot. I do usually take most of my plants in containers. I haven't been well for a while, so this is going to be very hard. I will be gettting the realtor to do many things I usually do. Hubby will be very helpful as usual and the movers do the really hard work. BUT, I have over 100 wonderful violets to move. I HOPE they all do OK!
