I went to the local nursery this weekend to get some fertilizer. I’m almost out of my favorite brand and have quite a few new plantings in mind this year. Of course I also bought several plants.
The Wonderful Spouse removed a fuzzy purple salvia that would get about 5 ft by 5 ft every year. I guess I wouldn’t have minded the size so much, even though our planters are a whole 2 feet wide, if I didn’t have to prune it back so drastically every year. Kind of a chore. But I do have to replace it with something and I’d like to use something that is a hummingbird or butterfly food source. But they also need to be kind of small; those darn 2 ft wide planters!
I ordered some things from Annie’s Annuals, one of my favorite catalogs, but after I set them out we had some awfully hot days and I lost several of them. So I have a new resolution. No buying of more plants until I have the ones I’ve got planted. That and I’m waiting for cooler weather. Fingers crossed.
