Sowing By FaithWednesday, May 27, 2009
I bought two types of flower seeds that I am quite sure will do well in my sunny container garden.
Portulaca or nine o'clock flower is a very common plant back in my teenage days. My family used to have a bed of this plant in front of our house. This plant loves the sun and the flowers open in the morning at about 9 o'clock... hence its name :-) The flowers look like small roses and have striking colours.
I have planted the seeds in my strawberry pot. Once the young shoots are out and ready, I will be transferring the pot to a spot where there's full sunlight.
The plants that were previously in the strawberry pot pockets were transferred to small pots.
In another pot, I sowed Livingstone Daisy. The description on the packaging says that this plant thrives in hot places. Sounds very suitable for my garden.
But again, this is a bedding plant. I hope they will look nice in this container later.
I plucked a vine of Rangoon Creeper this morning from the beautiful pergola I have posted earlier. As the plant has grown very bushy, its vines almost reached the ground. I am sure no one can tell if one vine has dissappeared! For the first time, I smelled the nice fragrant :-D
I have planted the cutting into this container using my own simple way. Hopefully, I might just get a young plant and later a small shrub from these stem cuttings.
Meanwhile, the Begonia 'Martin's Mystery' leaf I used to propagate earlier is doing well. Two little shoots sprouted out. I was told that the new plant from leaf propagation would be smaller in size and this is exactly what I wanted :-) Smaller plant in smaller pot. I hope to re-pot these little shoots soon.
