I have a need for constant growth, change, and learning. Adding new varieties of flowers and foliage to my farm each season. This year I am planning on working very hard to grow dahlias, as well as extend my season through December and possibly year round. For years, I have tried and failed to grow dahlias. But last year I had a great crop for two weeks (after a cold snap killed the tarnish plant bugs). A fellow grower gave me some hints so I am going to work my hardest put up some temporary tunnels and make them grow.
I’ll be trying my hand at Ornithogalum arabicum
I am really excited about Cerinthe Blue Kiwi which is easy and looks like great fun!
We will be trying to grow lilies and snapdragons later into December.
(too bad this isn’t scratch and sniff…nice citrus smell)
Because I love seeing the unexpected you might see Brussels sprouts and Red Noodle beans in a bouquet in 2012.
