Foxgloves

I love Foxgloves!  My zone 4 garden is not always kind to these plants, they often die off from harsh winter temps, but I keep trying.  Even if I can only grow them as annuals, they add such color and charm to the garden.

Mother Nature responds with sunshine, calm and a promise of nearly 70 degrees!

Rolling up my sleeves for a day of work.

This trellis needs work from some winter damage.

The list goes on from there!

What’s is your ‘must have’?

I learned how to grow Nasturtium while working at a small garden center.

Working in the greenhouse I was instructed to drop 5 seeds into each little 4″pot.

Within no time, the little lily pad leaves were emerging.

I loved how quickly they grew and their slightly messy, trailing vines.

That was the first year I planted Nasturtium in our window boxes.

I don’t believe I have missed a year since.

Nasturtium is one of my ‘must haves’.

What are yours?
