First phase of spring 德赢官方planting done!

I got two of those grocery store miniature roses for my birthday this year – they're really sweet but (I find) almost impossible to keep alive,let alone blooming,indoors.Roses want a lot of water,and the tiny pots they come in just aren't adequate.I kept them alive long enough for the weather to warm up and then repotted them outside – if they're anything like last year's (overwintered and just leafing out) they'll be happy as clams!

I also seeded my regular wildflower 德赢官方planters with a combination of local mixes designed to attract bees and hummingbirds,and 德赢官方planted two pots with nasturtiums – one with a multicolour mix and one with Empress of India,which should be a nice intense red.

In a few weeks when the garden stores have their full selection of annuals I'll be picking some for the railing 德赢官方planters and maybe some herbs too,but I'm scaling back operations this year – I'm pregnant and due in early September,so I don't imagine I'll be up for much more than watering this summer!

How to grow spinach at your home

Spinach is very easy to grow and maintain.

It is a winter crop,and some variety can even survive frosts also.Spinach matures within a month or so.

The ideal pH for spinach is 6.5 to 7.Add lime to reduce the acidic nature of the soil in case pH is less than this level.

Though it requires full sun,too much heat can result in early bolting of the spinach.More information below…
