plants in need of nurturing
I bought a bare root Clematis "Nelly Moser" early this spring on impulse at WalMart. It didn't look like much of anything when I opened up the package, my hopes were not high, but it seems to be coming along OK.I had Nelly once, and am excited to have another, such pretty flowers! I think I need to remove some Vinca vine around it though!

This poor Rudbeckia "Goldsturm" was on the sale shelf at the back of a drug store plant stand. It was so pitiful, full of dead foliage. I hand pruned the worst of it while standing in their parking lot. I took it over to the register and jokingly said "you should give this to me free so it can live" and the cashier said "OK". So it has a new lease on life.

Kay, That's the spirit! Very cute blog!
Well done Kay. I love to 'rescue' plants from the sale shelves. Not all of them make it but most of them do with a little TLC. So pleased to see that both of yours are thriving for you.
Yea, they look great.
Nurture-away, Kay. I know that you have the greenest of thumbs, so it shouldn't be a problem for you.
That's so nice of you to say Sjoerd. My green thumbs do love a challenge!
Toni, I'll bet your little roses are happy to be living with you!
