We bought our home last year and I had all these Big plans to plant veggies and flowers. Didn't know much and don't have much money to work with, and still don't so this fall I'm hoping to set up a long cinderblock rectangle in the back yard. Our neighbors have magical Green Thumbs so they can help with advice :)
So far I have planted:
Several cuttings from my mother's, and uncle's Rose of Sharon
(Rose of Sharon is my absolute Fav!)
They seem to be growing and are mostly purple a few are white. The flowered a few gorgeous "hibiscus" flowers, so we think they are rooted.
Hydrangea, I'm not a huge fan but my husband wanted it and its a staple here ;)
One Lilac bush (Think we need to buy another to xpollinate)
I'm a big Fan of these, I want them all over!
Dark Purple Butterly bush.
A few were sitting loooking about to be dumped we didn't want pink. She sold us the purple for half off the price (looked like garbage..darn my non-existant bargaining skills)...It is still green while everything is dead.
Winters here in NJ have been Wonky, One big snow after a Major hurricane. Everything is mushy.
Hoping to get enough courage to fight off mosquitos in Spring and plant my Morning Glories and Hollyhocks.
I have a Bunch of houseplants and I want so many more. Green inside the house adds so much warmth and life, my daughter is calling me Crazy plant lady..Need more windows ;p
*Sorry for long text but I'm just excited about growing anything and nowhere else ever gave me the chance to talk about it
