A Good Place to Land

I’ve had a pot with a Four O’Clock sitting next to a bed from last Fall until now.  Quite a variety of seeds found the pot to be a good place to land and germinate.

The pot contains the Four O’CLock, a couple of weeds and five kinds of plants that can be transplanted.  There is a Salvia,  two Jewel of Opar, Hardy Gloxinia, Moses and Wild Trailing Bean. Could gardening be any easier?


The Plant Hunter

The plant hunter would be me.  There is nothing I like more than free reseeding plants.  I find that most seeds prefer to germinate where they land and do better than when I plant them.  A Chocolate Plant (Pseuderanthemun alata) is happily growing in the Moses (Tradescantia spathacea) pot.

A Polka Dot seedling is hiding in the Rex Begonia.

The Clematis pot is an especially popular area for seeds to drop into.  There are a couple of Bartram’s Evening Primrose, a Polka Dot plant, a Jewel of Opar and a Wandering Jew vine.

Moss is host to Hardy Gloxinia seedlings.  There is a proper flower bed right there, but the moss seems to be the place to germinate.

My favorite place to plant hunt is cracks.  Somehow that small space with hardly any soil is a fruitful place to find many different plants.
