Not going to garden much today, even though the day is perfect for it. I had eye surgery this morning and I don’t really feel like doing anything particularly.
September is the best month to plant and transplant. There has been just the right amount of rains keeping all the new things happy.
I am looking through some garden books. One on plants from certain habitats that seems helpful in knowing where to situate plants and what grows well in my garden’s conditions. I don’t think it is the primary means of choosing, but seems like a sort of “second opinion”. I’ll list it when I feel like spending more time on the computer. Today is not the day.
I had started a double-flowered campanula in the garden early in the season. I think it is called Wonder Bells. It is slow to take hold, but I am hopeful. I tried some last year from a plant I had bought for indoors, but had waited too long to plant out.
Procrastination is the enemy of the gardener -get those plants in the ground, sow those seeds! You don’t get anything until you do. Timing is important, but timing is not everything. Getting started is the main thing.
