Well after an entire day of nothing but rain, it was nice to see the sun again. Don’t you miss tinkering in the garden when the weather is bad? Tina asked me yesterday why I wasn’t out moving things around and planting during the rain. Normally I do transplant things in the rain, but it was thundering & lightening too. And that is not my kind of gardening weather, lol. So I stayed indoors and caught up on housework and laundry. Anyhow, the sun is out and the rain has stopped for now. I had errands to run in the morning, but I did manage to get 12 Thalia Bulbs planted in the Fountain Bed container. First I removed the leggy Periwinkle, planted the bulbs about 6-8″ deep and then planted some fall Pansies on top. That leaves 12 to put in the other large container that lives in the Woodland Garden after removing the leggy Periwinkle from it as well. Then I’ll need more pansies to fill in the top to keep the container interesting until next spring when the Daffodils start blooming. When I received the Thalia bulbs this past week from Jung Seed Co. they included five ‘Tete a Tete’ Daffodils and two ‘Pixie Princess’ Dwarf Iris as free gifts for ordering. I planted the Daffodils near the newly planted Pansy container in the ground and the Irises were planted in the inner circle of the Arbor Bed. In addition, I started planting some of the new perennials. The Lobelia and Sweet Woodruff were planted in the Pecan Bed since it gets mostly shade during the day. Then I planted the Belamcanda ‘Hello Yellow’ and Echinops in the Arbor Bed as companions to Shasta Daisies, Colorful Summer Daylillies and the False Indigo. Now the only plants I have left to find homes for are the new Echinaceas and the Eurphorbia ‘Chameleon’. The Echinaceas will most likely be planted in the raised border bed and the Eurphobia will reside in the Woodland Garden. This weekend I will be laying compost in the front beds to prepare for more rain that might be coming our way over the next week. Where was all this rain this past summer when my garden was turning brown & crispy? Well at least all my transplants are getting settled in nicely. The weather has been staying in the 70’s which is perfect planting weather for perennials and spring blooming bulbs. What kinds of bulbs are you planting this fall?
