Re: Spring/was sunfarm

Spring should be finished here after the next few days of mid-80s forcast. My snow peas are already looking droopy after today. But really, this has been one of the best blooming Springs since I moved here (and the worst allergy years of my life). Oh- and some of the miniature iris that someone on this list sent me (I'm terrible keeping track of these things) are now blooming too! Both white and yellow so far.

I did a walkabout yesterday. This is what's blooming:

Blueberries, Blackberries, Apples, Dogwoods, Cherry Laurel, Kerria, Loropetalum, Azaleas, Black Jetbead, Fothergilla, Bridalwreath Spirea, 'Shasta' Viburnum, Carolina Jessamine, Star of Bethlehem, Ipheion, the last of the late Narcissus, Tulips (hybrid- the species are done), Grape Hyacinths, Wood Hyacinths, Hellebores, Corydalis, Lunaria, Chrysogonum, Candytuft (Iberis sempervirens, not the annual), Veronica 'Georgia Blue', Confederate Violets, Euphorbia, Vincas, major (that weed!) and minor. I might have missed something, but I don't think so.

Of course, they're forecasting frost for us by Tuesday. :-(

   Never heard of Sunfarm... so no orders to them... him.
I have pretty much slowed down on orders the past couple of years. I need to get what I have in the garden so I can quit having to take care of all this stuff I have in holding areas. It is considerably reduced now... but still here and I don't want it to grow. We just moved everything out of the greenhouse into the display beds, so naturally they are now forecasting frost over the weekend and first of next week.. Up in the garden, early trilliums are looking great this spring. Frost will not hurt them. Pulmonaria in full bloom along with hellebores. Hepatica are great now. Hellebores still going and primula are opening. Daffodils are best ever this spring.
