I know many of you still have cold weather, but thought I'd start a new thread to bring some Spring cheer to everyone! Here's what's blooming in my garden currently. The weather has warmed up and new buds and blooms are making their entrance. :-)

This is Silver Moon Clematis! A new one for me from a co-op last year as a teeny plant. The bloom is bigger than the vine right now! LOL!

Jackie - Thank you! I can't believe my rose blooms are speckled! LOL! The pink Knock-out rose bush is producing a tie-dye type of bloom pattern. Very pretty! I should probably post on the rose forum and ask what causes it. It doesn't appear to be harming the plants. And my roses are HUGE this year! I didn't even know they could get that big. I always thought KO roses were small almost teacup sized. Apparently not! LOL!

dem - Most of the roses I grow are Knock-out roses. And everything is in containers except one lonely Don Juan rose plant. Which would probably do better in a container too. I might eventually dig that plant up and grow it in a pot! ;-)

You should try one rose bush in a container and see how it does. You might find it works well for you!

Don't forget that any roses in containers may need to be watered more often than in the ground. And fertilize regularly like you would if they were in the ground. I found out the hard way that they weren't getting enough water and had some wilted rose bushes until I figured out I needed to really soak the plants in the containers at least twice a week. :-) More in summer!

pixie - Beautiful photo from eddiedewayne. Sounds like you grow quite a variety, too. I am trying new ones every year. There seems to be an endless variety of JMGs around if you can figure out where to get them from. :-)

dem - I look forward to seeing yours and everyone else's vines and blooms this year. When do you start planting your seeds?

I, personally, like making crosses. I've had a lot of fun hand-pollinating blooms with pollen from another vine. Sometimes I get some really neat crosses. The down side is that you might get something really neat, but seeds from that new vine often don't come true with the next generation. But it's always a surprise to see what two different vines will create which certainly keeps my interest. :-)

I would caution against Oxalis here, Becky. I have some and it will quickly take over a bed. They are charming little flowers, but very invasive. Have you ever grown Phlox during the winter here? Mine have done beautifully even during our freezes. Die out when it gets hot, though.

I start planting this week, have been slowly getting things in order. Very anxious! Since I was home last year, I had the time to start even my annuals and approx 99% of my pots and borders ! started from seed. No damping off issues, really high germination rates, I was giving away eggplant, pepper, tomato and bean plants to perfect strangers! Felt good though.

Teresa - Thanks for the warning about the Oxalis. I was thinking of maybe growing some in a container. The heat here plays havoc with them though, so I don't know how successful I could grow them. I've tried growing Phlox for 3 years in a row and they just can't handle the heat of summer. They don't come back either after winter. Go figure. I think I need to stick with drought and heat tolerant plants. LOL! Your photos of yours are gorgeous! Do you grow them in a partially shady spot or in full sun?

dem - Wow! Sounds like you are certainly doing something right with veggie plants. You definitely have a green thumb! I managed to get two different tomato plants, 4 cucumber plants, and 4 sweet green pepper plants planted into containers yesterday. Also a strawberry plant. I have many more veggie and fruit plants I need to harden off outside, but it won't be until next week when I have off from work for Spring Break. :-) I am thinking about growing some watermelon in my hot front garden. I kept having issues with growing them last year because the fruit kept bursting. Apparently, too much watering! I tend to overwater everything! LOL!

I also love poppies and have had good luck with them. I wished I had more garden beds to grow more, but I sprinkled seeds in all my empty containers and they are coming up everywhere! :-) I want to try CA poppies this year.

It's annual Phlox. I got cheap packets at Dollar store and that's the best grower. I did not know they were winter hardy till two years ago when we had those horrible freezes. I thought they would all die, but they kept right on blooming. I grew different varieties this past winter, but they did not do as well as the cheap seeds. I got some more of them for next winter.

Oh sunflowers are fun and they make you smile. My grandaughters love helping me plant them and get the biggest kick out of them when they grow taller then they are!
Not sure if this will work but here are some pictures of sunflowers my DGD & I grew last summer. Give it a second and it should open to a collage of them.

pixie,, you have a very nice selection to grow. I've not heard of Fukamiso before, did the seller have a photo of it by chance? Will look forward to seeing your photos this year.. thanks for posting here.

Becky, me too, I've got a ton of sunflower seeds for this year. You will not believe what happened a couple of years ago with sunflowers here, they reseeded and I was shocked, the were annuals. The seeds survived in the soil here. It may happen to you also. There is a little tiny worm that develops in the sunflower's leaves and they eat the whole plant and finally kill the plant, so keep an eye out for those, I get them every year. If I can, I'll find out the name of those worms. I called the extension service here and I've forgotten what they were called.

Does anyone else get these worms on them? Maybe it has something to do with the nearby orchards here.

Well Gourd, im not sure now...i've gone to the sellers page and it seems they have removed the page/closed auction all together. Now im guessing because someone complained as to the name/authenticity of said seeds? Anyways it doesn't matter because I copied down the info and the picture into my files. This is the picture the seller had listed as 'Fukamiso'

Celeste my first thought on you bloom was 'Hatsu Arashi'
You will be smitten with the blues! They are my favorites, the spectrum of all the colors are great but the blues...yum!

Thanks Imzadi Becky & Dem, i'm looking forward to growing them but am trying to figure out what I will use for them to climb. I already have a fence that I use, trellis and I think i'll have DH string some chicken wire type fencing on the side of the shed this year. Maybe i'll cover the whole thing. LOL

Thanks Dem.
Oh yes, my hubby bought him a silver piggy bank in the shape of a TRACTOR with his initials engraved on it. He put Susan B. Anthony, Sacagawea, and several 2011 half dollars in it to go towards the purchase of his 1st tractor. LOL
