    Your garden

    Advertisements
    I just counted 16 roses that are about to bloom I'm pretty excited. Now that we've been in our house for over a year I'm kinda starting to understand the life cycle of my flowers/plants but I'm still learning a lot.

    What do you have in your garden?
    How do you care for each of them? yes you can be as detailed as possible

    I have about 3 different types of roses (red, yellow & whites)
    I have a culantro herbs seeds that I'm trying sooooo hard to make grow!
    I have a magnolia tree which I really don't do anything special to it.
    I also have my tulip which died about two days after it bloomed
    and I have some other type of flowers that I still don't know the name.

    We just finished remodeling our backyard so now I have a space for a little veggie garden.

    I bought strawberries, tomatoes, peppers (seeds), and green beans (seeds). I'll add more once I get the hang of it. I don't have anything really special planned as far as taking care of them goes but I'm learning as I go.

    We also planted palms and bought ferns and other tropical looking plants which are waiting to get planted. We're waiting for the area to dry out more since the new sprinkler system got the planters a little too wet aka the mud puddle.

    Costco had a sale on fruit trees and I couldn't gelp myself but I bought 3. I'll keep them in nice pots so they won't get so big and keep them on the patio. We have a sweet lime, italian limon and mandarin orange. They were only $15 each.

    We also bought the palms from Costco. 2 Queen Palms for $32 each and 2 Sago Palms for $36 each. The Queen Palms at Home Depot are selling for $85 on sale. It was too good of a deal to pass up.

    As for the veggies, I can't wait to have more. I want to be able to eat something from the graden every day.

    We also have two grape vines in the front yard that I forgot about. I planted then last summer. I'm counting down the days until I can eat my first grape. The leaves are starting to grow back and hopefully we get something this season.

    We live in housing and are putting in a garden. We have also done the pot garden. We can put in a 12 x 16. I do tomatoes, cukes, peppers, and I am thinking about carrots and onions. Maybe asparagus too.

    we are renting so I'm not going to plant veggies in the ground. Plus we have cute little wild bunnies that would snack on my stuff all the time! I'm thinking I might try that upside down tomato planter deal. Its an as seen on TV thing and I saw it at Target. I was also thinking planting them in a hay bale. I've heard that works well. I am going to plant flowers around the front and back yard. Its SO ugly and brown here. I need to see some color!
