There was still lots to do in the garden today and the apprentices were out in full force. There was more trenching and it was time to fertilize all the pots so they will be in tip top shape for the tour. The flamingos are not pink with envy anymore. They are envious of the lilacs blooming right now. It was time to fertilize with our bloom and grow today. 500 pots takes quite awhile so three dedicated themselves to getting the job done.
Also today we discussed indoor plants you can bring outside. It’s time to drag some of those plants out of the house, dust them off, and decorate your outdoor living area, patio or deck.
There are some great tropical plants you can put outside and then bring in for the winter and they will last for years.
Tropicals you can put outside are bananas, lemons, limes, palms, pony tail palm (not a true palm), Bougainvillea, Mandeville, hibiscus and cannas. Many houseplants like it outside in the summer.
Here are a few pictures from Rob’s patio.
