Pansies are stirring into action and beginning to "show" their little green heads. Only a few are up so far, but it's a start even if you do practically need a magnifying glass to see them! Had the starter tray on my potting bench extension, when temperature dropped to 50 degrees nights in the unheated sunroom, moved the tray onto a propagation mat for bottom heat, seems to have done the trick. Once they've all germinated, will remove them from heat and keep my fingers crossed!
January will see the planting of blue mealy sage (a plant similiar to Russian sage) and gerberas. First time I'm attempting gerberas..anyone have any suggestions on raising them? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Is dark, cold and overcast here today, so it's nice to see African violets in bloom and two orchids getting ready to share their beauty with the world as well. Zonal geraniums, in sunroom, are also beginning to bloom despite drastic cutting back in September, are really great "spirit lifters" when the snow flies and those winter doldrums set in. Mother Nature is good to the gardener... .
