mine are in raised beds remember and not a huge patch either. They're modest
little single plants. Give 'em time, I hope they naturalize...........I PRAY
check out Home Despot this weekend. They have packages of lily bulbs for
$3.97 for 8......not bad for the size. and yes, I said Home Despot. Just
cos' I werk for Lowes and can get a 10% discount on anything except for
marked down stuff doesn't mean I confine my plant purchases to just them. In
fact, I spent too much for those damn Jackson & Perkin's bulb boxes they've
come out with. They had PINEAPPLE LILY, and Blue Nile agapanthus and ohhh
what was it?? Oh yeah. Peruvian Daffodil. The Pineapple Lily will go in the
BBQ pit/fountain garden when they grow into the pot I put them in for now.
Hopefully they'll have nice root growth by then. I thought I'd put them
where Sugar dug to New Zealand. :( Then the Peruvian daffodil went into a
pot. Four very nice bulbs all with fat green noses. I put them cheek to jowl
in a non draining pot but will not water until I see signs of sprouting.
This is the week where I pull down the Clivia. pray for me.......this will
be my 8th attempt at trying for blossom.
Then there is the little roots of wildflowers I bought for $1. Bloodroot (if
I knew where there was a huge patch I'd dig my own thank you. It's prolific
somewhere around here but haven't found it. And yes, if it's in abundance
and a massive colony or threatened to be bulldozed, I'll dig it up in the
wild. But only that. I don't take endangered plants, or if there is only 5.
I also collect seed, but haven't had too much luck with that yet.
they're out there, look again..........................
