Summer Seed Plantinbg Experiment: Perennial flowers. 7.14.18
That was fun to watch, Joan. I wonder how many can's worth of aluminum it takes?
That's a beautiful cast of their tunnels!
I know there are some who object to this process, however, it is interesting how complex a fire ant hill is. I must say, I can't feel sorry for the death of the fire ants. They are vicious creatures. I do like the plain old ordinary ants that help my peonies open up each summer.
Kathy, is this what your asclepias tuberosa looks like?
A gardner needs to learn to be ruthless. When a tree needs to go, get it done, even if you cry with each stroke of the chain saw.
If you plant too few seeds, you may not get a harvest, if you plant too many, you may have to thin them out.
If you want a treasured plant moved, then grit your teeth and take the plunge.
I successfully potted up and transplanted remnants of all my grandmothers' and great-grandmothers plants to the Generation Garden at my daughter's place. I am very nervous about a plant that was given to me by the family of a neighbor who was an English Shakespearean actor. He was Santa Clause at my Yule parties, and he told the neighborhood children wonderful stories in my back yard while he was alive. Those children no longer are children, they are all grown up. We had his memorial service in my back yard and his family gave me a Strawberry and Vanilla Hydragea after our celebration of his life. I just hope I can successfully move that plant.
Kathy, you are so very far ahead of me. I have not seen any chrysalis, and since my plants are all intact have not been eaten I guess there is no activity. :(
Kathy, I bought my first one last year and it struggled to establish. I gathered seed and kept in fridge for winter and then planted lots of them - talk about overkill. My original is now in bloom and I have many new shoots. It is my one true success!. You said you wanted to "figure out how to keep catepillar stage alive" - what do you mean?
I had to look it up - it's beautiful, Kathy!
