Close Is Not Close EnoughPosted: March 30, 2020
My philosophy in the Automatic Garden is to get plants to reproduce on their own either by seed or roots. I have been trying to get Bartram’s Oenothera grandiflora Evening Primrose to naturalize for years. I have been sowing the seeds in four different locations hoping for some success.
The Evening Primrose has finally started some plants by seed. Instead of doing it in the perfectly fine garden bed, all the seeds germinated in the grass close to the bed. I was glad I spotted the plants before the mower got to them. They have been transplanted, but the Evening Primroses would have a better chance if they did not have to be moved.
