Let's see your fall arrangements! Mostly I just have dahlias left here in the mts. of west md.
Fall Upon Us 2011
Very lovely, Candee. Are your zinnias all gone? I should have some mums blooming in a month or so.
I hardly had any zinnias this year. Something got all the seed and I seeded them 3x. I finally did some in pots but all that was left were the giant whites so not much color for arrangements this year. Thank goodness the dahlias are doing so well.
I don't have any mums, never had a good thumb for them as I managed to kill them all.
Mums need a lot of fertilizer adn dont like gettigntheir feet too wet through the winter. I only have a few varieties.. several I grow in a flower box that have wintered 2 years now and a very very hardy tall variety..
Guess the fertilizer is my problem with them cause I sure can't keep them thriving. They will winter in our area as I see them all over the place, just not here!!!
They like lotsa nitrogen.. have you tried them in containers???
Yes containers and in the ground, think they just don't like me!
I have one that is so hardy it is blooming now.. its very tall.. makes a nice vase flower..
this is interesting to see your flower blooming because it is just the same feeling as our son become more older.
Welcome salbulba - nice of you to stop by and admire our vase arrangements. We are all lovers of dahlias.
