Back to home & garden

We repair a raised bed, a bit. · June 1, 2023

In the fall we will have to rebuild this one!

Very good year for poppies

And peonies in back

Last year we had dahlias up by May 30, and this year we seem to be on the same schedule. On May 24, 2023, I counted 6 sprouts, mostly the shorter variety we have planted in the front center of some of the beds. By May 28 we had t10, an even mix shorter and taller, and by June 1 we had 12.

Raised beds on May 27, at left, and on June 1, at right (with petunias set in May 30)

1. Gay Princess, Cha Ching, Papa's love

2. Happy Day, Day Dreamer, Honey Moon

3. La Luna (twice) shoots

4. Unicorn Dreams, Taboo, Bluetiful

5.Stark Raving Red mix

Shorter dahlias in front, beds 2 and 4: Firepot; bed 3: Dahlegria Bicolore
