One More ChancePosted: April 15, 2015
Somehow plants know when you are about to give up on them. This Gerbera Daisy has not put out anything but sickly, half formed flowers. It was surprising to see a huge perfectly formed daisy.
The Gulf Coast is not a happy place for Hellebores. This plant is close to 15 years old and only puts out a leaf or two each year. It has not bloomed in a very long time. This year it managed to make three flowers. These plants have earned one more chance for their efforts.
PS In the Automatic Garden, most plants get to stay until they disappear on their own. But, big efforts are appreciated.
