plants in need of nurturing

Category: Planting | Posted: Fri Jun 01, 2012 12:20 pm

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.

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.

I love to rescue plants. I have about 25 mini roses in pots out front that the floral dept at Kroger was going to throw away the week after Valentines. A few of them are having a hard time but the others are out growing their pots and putting our blooms.

Nurture-away, Kay. I know that you have the greenest of thumbs, so it shouldn't be a problem for you.

Good luck with these, they are lovely plants when they bloom.

Keep us posted on their progress, Oké?

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!
