The Automatic Garden in ActionPosted: May 23, 2015
The Poppies are almost finished and their seed heads are ripening.
The Poppies’ seeds were scattered in late October after the Balsam Impatiens finished. Balsam Impatiens are great reseeders as their pods pop open and fling the seeds out for perfect planting. They were grown by George Washington and Thomas Jefferson.
The Balsam Impatiens (the small plants with pointed leaves) germinated just when the Poppies are ending their growing season. Perfect timing for the Automatic Garden.
