Annual seeds to update border
Sadly this has not been the case, we watered them and I did not even weed for a while as I was not sure what was growing weed or wild flower.
We are now mid-August and this is what we have.
Well, not a huge success is it? I have to laugh at how sad these two flowers look.
There a couple reasons I know they have not worked, my youngest son has turned into a plant destroyer. He has pulled off petals and whole flower heads, he stomps through the border snapping plants under his small podgy feet. Then factor in slugs and snails who think they were planted as a tasty treat.
We have had some success and they are very pretty just a shame not in abundance.
Will I try this again? yes, I will try this again and in the same place. Next time I will sew a lot more seeds, they are not that expensive. Also, sew over a longer period and hopefully next year I am only battling slugs and not the plant destroyer.
Sometimes things work and some things they do not, I will try again next year with as much hope as I did this time.
