It’s amazing how much I can squeeze into a small space. There are a lot of different flowers in my garden. There are many kinds of roses and varieties. I apologize, I don’t know any of their names. Most of the roses come from the Home Depot. They have a good selection, but you have to get there early in the spring. We’ve had pretty good luck with their roses so far.
Aside, from roses, there are hydrangeas, black eye Susans, morning glories, mandevillas, Snapdragons(my new favorite flower), climbing hydrengeas, which was giving to us by our neighbor) and many more. I love them all. They make me happy. If it wasn’t for the creepy crawlies I would sleep in my garden.
As you will see, I’m never short of fresh flowers during the summer months. The more I pick the flowers, the more they seem to grow.
The pink hydrangea is from a cutting a few years ago. Once I make a cut that looks healthy and strong, I dip it in root hormone to promote faster growth, then I put it in small pot with soil and watch it. I usually cut a few(about 5) so there is a better rate of success. At the end of the summer I bring it in and leave it on my kitchen window. Then I plant it in the ground the following year. If you want to know more on how to propagate hydrangea click here. It’s really easy. I promise. You just have to be a little patient.
Here is a cutting from last summer. I will be planting it into the ground as soon as I find the space. As you can see, it looks strong and healthy with lots of new leaves.
