Quick hit follow up on the okra. The plants are dying down and getting thin! It makes me anxious to pull them up and plant the winter plants but hold out as long as possible so you have strong seeds!!

Zinnias are like any plant you may be trying to harvest seeds from; they need their nutrients for the best germination rates. So, when planning to harvest zinnia seeds leave them on their stems untill they are fully brown!! And then store them in a place between 40 and 70 degrees until u plant them!!

I swear sometimes #winter feels harder then spring as there is just so much to do. On top of that all the color seems to have left the garden But... If you push through it now then it will be so much easier to get that beautiful spring bed up and running and the #colors will feel even brighter after the cold is gone!!

I love these #red red red #canna lillies. They are so easy to grow with tall stems and dark purple leaves! They also take the heat well and come back every year.

These sweet baby bells are seriously good. I can't stop eating them. I had two dozen of them and this is all that made it in the house without me eating them! I have also found them easier to grow then the larger varities. So if your struggling in the bell pepper area try these out and see if they work better for you; for sure the flavor won't fail!

Im kind of in love with my #cherrytomatoes right now 😍😍😍😍😁😁

Nope it's not bamboo it's #asperagus ! It is pretty cool though that those stalks are the amazing veggie we eat. I just cut them down in prep for winter. Make sure and use your ferns for coverage from cold. Just lay them back over the tops after cutting and they will act as a shield from cold and also compost down for great organic matter in your soil!

Sneak peak of a little project we've been working on. We're building an enclosed pergala that will house a hedge maze made of almost 50 blueberry plants, as well as red and white currants, elderberries, aronia berries, gooseberries, grapes, strawberries, hardy kiwis and possibly a bonsai fruit tree or two. So fun working with clients who are actively trying to integrate food into their landscape, as well as doing so in a creative way. πŸ™ŒπŸ’ͺ

Under the warmth of the plastic, temps are kept high enough so that during the day the tomatoes are in good shape to produce flowers. Here’s hoping these produce a few tomatoes! .

Before and (hopefully) after all in one photo πŸ˜‚ this is a shot from the bottom of the plot. You can see the vast difference between my overgrown grass filled patch and the small slice of heaven my neighbour has nextdoor. His plot is fantastic and such an inspiration. I’m glad I have it to look at whilst I’ll be digging up old tarps and strimming inch thick brambles πŸ™„ you can see how he’s dug down into the slope and made a little patio like area for his shed and future greenhouse. That wall and little wooden bench is just 😍😍

Four years ago I divided and replanted these New Zealand Flax plants. Since then they have been healthy but never flowered. In the space of just two days these guys have sent up the most beautiful flower spikes. They were probably jealous of the beautiful blooms on their cousins, the Kangaroo paw, lurking nearby. Will they be orange or yellow? I can not wait to see them bloom...watch this space...

Winterizing your cannas is one of the simplest things you can do in your garden clean up process! Simply cut the tops and chop them up slightly and lay some back over them for natural cold protection! They will return for you next season!! Update!!! This works in zones 5 and up. Starting im zone 4 and below they should be brought in with other bulbs and stored for the winter!
