Since Val got us all started off i will jump on in as well. I spent Sun in the yard cutting down the tall grasses and clearing out dead leaves and was surprised to see what was growing all ready as our front yard has been covered in snow most of the winter. you can look at my 2011 thread to see what it looked like in full bloom last yr.

Jenn's Gardening Thread-2012 P3120464
here are the chopped Karl Foerster grasses, in front is my iris and lily garden, i don't think the irises will be as great as last yr as i divided them all in the fall, nice to see if what i did worked and gave them more room to grow.

Jenn's Gardening Thread-2012 P3120461
Project #1, remove rest of the rock and build a flagstone path next to the raised bed to the back yard/ or for now the fence, on the right hand side next to the house i want to do a garden bed one flagstone brick tall with some drought tolerant grasses so i don't have to water against the foundation of the home.

Jenn's Gardening Thread-2012 P3120462
raised bed has snow in summer flowers that dont look dead so im not sure what to do with them so im not cutting them back, also have my Russian sage bush the one in the front thats all branch and a yellow flower green bush behind that, they were looking sad at the end of the yr so i hope they come back this yr, fingers crossed.


Jenn's Gardening Thread-2012 P3120465
this a my #2 project for the summer, remove the rest of the damn rock and get my raised bed built and plants planted as well the flagstone walk way.

Jenn's Gardening Thread-2012 P3120463
my love and joy front garden bed Smile with my weeping mulberry tree.

Jenn's Gardening Thread-2012 P3120466
wish i could tell you whats all in it but i will tell you just about all these were bought on the clearance rack at lowes and are all Perennial Flowers. if you really want to know once things bloom i can check to see if the tag is still with it Smile

Jenn's Gardening Thread-2012 P3120468
front bed close up of green

Jenn's Gardening Thread-2012 P3120467
tulips popping up

Also on front yard talk is replacing the crappy edging with either stone or something nicer looking that the weed whacker does not eat up, any suggestions? im all ears.
might make the front garden bed larger in the replacing of the edging....
oh i can make the time for the work and i really do love playing in the dirt i just wish it did not cost so much $, most if not all of the flagstone has been picked up on craigslist so that helps some and i find free stuff. Oh the back yard is a whole another story and will do that another day.

Wow, you've got big plans for this year. Can't wait to see how it all comes together!

We're putting in new edging around our garden borders also but we are also undecided. I'm sure you remember our HOA denied the curbcrete. We are still considering doing the curbcrete in the backyard since the HOA wouldn't know about that. Thinking about doing some sort of nice concrete block or stone in the front and possibly backyard. I'm interested to see what ideas you have and what others might suggest for the edging.

not the garden but part of my inside plants!

Jenn's Gardening Thread-2012 Img_2014

Just had to share this, Ken bought me this poinsettia 4-5 yrs ago and it still blooms every march Smile i love it but noticed that i think one section of the plant is dying Sad
when i tell people how long i have had it and that it still blooms they always ask me what i do and i just say water it Smile

my orchid also has a new stem and i think its going to bloom! it has not bloomed in about 1.5yrs so i replanted it last spring and have been waiting....

Lol It blooms in March?! Smile Not bad how long it's lived for in a pot indoors. Would it not survive if planted outside?

Well i got out yesterday morning and fertilized the grass,trees/bushes and the flower gardens and watered everything, i don't know why but i LOVE doing yard work, something about knowing you did all that work and get to see all the life coming back puts a smile on my face (our yard was all DIRT when we moved in), now 3 months from now i might be bitching about the damn weeds or the lack of rain but for right now i LOVE it Smile
here is what i found yesterday!

Last day of snow?....
Jenn's Gardening Thread-2012 P4020626

Jenn's Gardening Thread-2012 P4020627

last yr i posted our last snow fall on March 28th. we will see what mother nature has in store for CO this summer.
Oh and my seeds are really taking off, question for who ever knows, when you start seeds and you put more then on in the area and they all start to grow at what point do you "kill" the others so only one is going per seed spot? i have that indoor green house seed starter set.

I never killed off the others - I just planted the pod right in the ground, and it just took off. I know that's what it says to do, but if they're all growing at the same rate, I just left it - and it has grown to healthy plants. The only thing I had a hard time growing were the chives and green onions. The roma tomatoes and basil that I gave you always took off.

claudia, i think its ok to do that with what your growing but i cant have 3 cucumber plants fighting for the same spot, or the big zucchini and pumpkins. you end up with 3 plants fighting for water and sun and what not and you could end up with nothing growing because of it. i was thinking once i get them in the ground and see what happens as far as growth then pick the strongest one.

Gladah
its a "nelly moser" Clematis

With what you're growing then, I think you kill off the ones before you plant them in the ground. (At least that's what I remember it saying on the packaging for the pod/greenhouse thing.)

Home Depot or even Lowes or any gardening store. They come in different size pod count too. You hydrate the disks that will grow into those pods that you see in the picture. Then you place 2-3 seeds in each pods. A plastic cover comes with the kit along with instructions. They're pretty inexpensive.

seed starters were like $5 something at walmart, $12 something at home depot affraid crazy that it was the SAME thing... but i have also found HD to be cheaper on some garden stuff when walmart all about price shopping.


Claudia yes its phlox and mine stayed green all winter and it grows like a weed over the years, i got all mine off the 50%off rack at lowes the last 3 yrs, find it hard to kill, but its a spring bloomer then stays green. i have the dark pink one out back that i posted the pic of just the one bloom earlier, its crazy bloomed now.
