Laughing about your holes Susan. Last years bed looks like a mine field here. Chelle told me that was an excuse to go to the nursery.

I had no idea a perennial only last about 3 years. More motivation for seed collection or propagation techniques. Sorry about your shrubs.

Brinda on Coleus Chatters Cubit needs one more person to finish out her coop. Good prices for starter coleus if your interested. Here's her link: http://cubits.org/chatters/thread/view/15752/

Sorry I didn't mention it sooner Arejay!

Maybe we can have a coleus swap later in the year. I have a pack of seed too RRM. Different than yours I think. I'll plant them up and we can have an swap or auction or something. They make great fillers. I invited Brinda to Charley's recruitment thread. That's still the one right?

Yes, you invite them, we will welcome them when they pop in..We will have lots of Beautiful pictures in Chelle's database.
Have you all checked it out. I think it will be a great way to keep track of plants thru the year. She can start one too.

Some perennials can last for many years. Peonies seem to live forever. I think sedum do too. I've had the same coreopsis moonbeam for probably 20 years. And liriope. And coneflowers.... If you want long lived plants, you just have to go with the right kind and those that like your growing conditions (clay or sandy soil?, alkaline or acid soil, sun or shade, etc).

Some, like rudbeckia hirta or gaillardia, are very short lived in my yard.

Some of the coreopsis we have are 10 years old. They are starting to lose their vigor so each year I remove the side shoots and replant them to replenish our supply.
I love them. Smiling Such bright happy faces and no other care seems to be necessary.

You know what, Charleen? At first I wasn't sure if the Member Gardens the way it is presently was going to be okay, but I just added another photo and I'm growing to appreciate it more. Pretty easy to use. Smiling

I'm not sure that is possible. Have you seen some of the other databases at other cubits? Lots of photos!

Karen your larkspur is awsome. I gave it a try for 3 years with no success. I read and tried it all. First it was too warm, then too wet, then just right (slow learner). It is the only seed that I had such failure with. I am poke me with a fork done spending money on larkspur seed, so I appreciate being able to admire yours.

Susan, I was a slow learner with larkspur, too. Finally a friend with a green thumb shared her secret with me: direct sow them in fall. For zone 5 that would probably be late August or September. They'll sprout in fall and winter over as tiny seedlings. Even below zero temps won't bother them. As soon as there's a hint of warmth in spring, they take off like rockets and grow into tall, stately plants. Then just let them drop their seeds naturally, they'll sow themselves, and you'll have larkspur in your garden forever.

For me, they've taken over.

It's hard to find such blues in other types of plants. My favorite color combo is true blue and bright yellow.
I have at least one coming up in a pot in the greenhouse. I don't recall seeding larkspur in a pot but I welcome it anyway!

They are pretty and creative RRM! Very nice as was yours to Sam. I didn't post on the thread because I was hoping she would show us more and didn't want to interrupt. I was also hoping she would tell us some of the significance of the design. Is it a traditional native american design or a creation of her own? Can you get her to tell us a little about them?

I enjoyed it and will say when she's finished!
