March 2017

March Posts, Garden Jobs & Reminders

Early March and it’s still very hot, very dry.  Promised rain seems to go around us.

On the verge: Gerberas have come up for their second season and are flowering well. The soil has definitely improved. Zinnias are still flowering. A blue dot marks where the street tree will go.

March 19, 2017: After yet another week of the rain and storms going around us, last night we had a welcome downpour.

Batchelors buttons (Gomphrena Globosa) is flowering well and popular with Blue Triangle butterfly and native bees.  Could be good in the flower verge in spring/summer as the plants are more attractive than may flowering annuals. Seeds from Perennial Poppies.
