I bought these last week and can't wait to get the black hollyhock in the ground. Never had one this color, only the double pinks and whites. I understand the black is what is used by some to color herb teas, because when it's added it gives a deep rose color. I will try it.
I must remember to dig up the dahlia this year
I am gonna try garlic , never have before. I use garlic a lot.
As I was walking the yard earlier to see if any bulbs were coming up; I found some.
These are Hiacinths, I used to have more than this in this bed, who knows what critter got them. I am having trouble with moles, need some more grub killer, or milky spore.
looks like it may have survived.
I took this cutting from the larger lavender plant shown below. This provence lavender is hardy, it took being buried under snow this winter.
I am still working on this boxwood that I dug up from under a larger one in the yard, it is two years old.
I will give it another haircut soon. .
