I’ve been giving what I hope are helpful gardening tips to you, but I haven’t had much to say with what I’ve been up to with my spring garden plants. I’d love to give you all an update about the triumphs and failures in my little urban garden, as well as a nice little surprise to those who read to the very end. Here is an update on my garden and giveaway.
Spring Garden Plants
I love this time of year in that there is so much blooming and the days are longer and mild. It’s the perfect time of year to garden!
After patiently waiting over a year, the amaryllis I got from my best friend’s in-laws has bloomed for me again. I love their colors and size. Each flower is bigger than my hands!
These will stay in bloom for another few weeks before dying. I’m still waiting for two more flowers to open up on either side to enjoy from my office.
The rest of my garden is filled with succulents, tropical plants, roses, and other odds and ends that I enjoy growing. Succulents are great since they don’t need much room to grow and can be left alone with little watering.
I was only able to get two roses to bloom from my mini rose plant last year. I cut the plant down to sticks a few months ago, and now it looks like a new plant, with vibrant green leaves and large pink flowers! I’m still waiting for other plants to start blooming too.
I’ve got some seedlings growing, although I hope the others I’ve sown start growing soon as well. We’ll see! I see a sunflower and cosmos seedling so far, so that is good.
I ended up moving out pygmy palm tree from the front porch to the balcony. It took so much room near the door, so now its sitting nicely in a corner of the balcony.
I have two hibiscus plants and two plumeria, so I moved each of these to the front porch. Now there is more room to walk around!
