Today we didn’t have a truck and Rob didn’t go to the studio so there is no segment to watch but we had lots of fun in the garden.
It’s time for some summer garden clean-up and we were all busy as bees, deadheading, trimming, chopping and fertilizing.
We’ve had a lot of hot weather and a lot of the perennials that were beautiful a couple of weeks ago need to be cut back, trimmed, and deadheaded so they will burst forth in bloom again. Some plants that are finished blooming and we didn’t want to spread seed were chopped off.
We pulled down all the pots off the posts and deadheaded and trimmed the leggy parts. We fertilized them and put them back up. In no time they’ll be beautiful and full with blooms again. These pots all had vining geraniums in them.
We cut off all the Giant Cow Parsnips so the seed wouldn’t spread. We saved one and will let the seed dry so we can harvest it and try to grow our own.
Any of the plants that are tall and out of control were cut back into smaller mounds. They should bloom again.
