Now we needed soil. I had seen 40qt bags of nutrient rich potting soil on sale at Sam’s so hubby picked up 3 bags, which filled the garden box about half way full. Next he made a trip to Lowe’s to get 3 bags of topsoil to fill up the box.
It was finally time to get some flowers! My girlfriend and I made one more trip to Lowe’s to choose the flowers. After much discussion we decided to get Techno Heat Lobelia for the back row, Pentas for the middle row and Lantana for the front row.
When we removed the Lobelia from their pot to separate them and replant them, they were very root bound. We weren’t sure they would survive. It took them about 2 weeks to settle in and “look alive” but now they appear to be doing well.
So far, so good, my flowers are growing and doing well. I am enjoying seeing the color in my dull yard and this makes me happy. Do you have a garden? What flowers do you like to grow?
