This is mainly Rudbeckia and Butterfly Weed. I didn't WS the Marigold nor the Bonfire Euphorbia. I have heard it said that in the first year of a plants life it sleeps, the second year it creeps and the third year it leaps...I think some of my Ruds went straight to the leaping stage. LoL
This area is filled with WSn plants as well. Only the Dahlias and Liatris were not wsn. This bed has Hollyhocks, Malva, GreenEnvy coneflowers, Petunias, Blackberry Lilies, Butterfly Weeds and Gaillardia. My favorite is probably the Gaillardia.
Thanks Mom2Golden, it was so much fun to have seeds to start during the winter. I am trying to come up with different containers for WSing this year. I'm looking forward to doing it again the winter.
Do you have pictures of your garden?
I have some WSn Milkweed that is full of aphids. I debated if I should treat the aphids but decided againtst it. Now I have two huge Monarch caterpillars.
Huggergirl, I cannot believe how close we are! This is perfect WSing weather today with all the snow.
Terese, I have mostly 2 litter bottles. I like the gallon jugs better...more space for seeds and easier to cut. I have even used the same concept to start seeds inside. It's the perfect container to start seedlings.
What brand of potting mix are you using? I've run out and hope to get some more on Thursday. Also ran out of milk jugs but have accumulated 4 within last 2 days. Might have to go scavenger hunting one morning early or mid day before the recycle trucks come.
