A Mind of Their OwnPosted: April 12, 2016
It is so frustrating to work really hard to grow plants in pots and beds and then find out they really prefer to grow in a tiny crack with barely any soil or nutrition. The glossy leafed vine originally grew in an elegant clay pot on the patio table. It did not like it and died. Somehow it manged to send seeds out. The Peacock Moss long ago left its container and has traveled all over the garden. To the left, the heart shaped leaves are Dutchman’s Pipe. Did any germinate in the bed? No.
This Balsam Impatient is growing in a joint in the driveway. It is the first to bloom.
Worst of all, about 50 or more Butterfly Weed are growing in the cobble rocks. Under the rocks is a barrier cloth. There is almost no soil. Are any growing in the bed? No. I beginning to think I should just sow seeds in cracks and rocks…the heck with good soil.
