    Default Plants that look kick ass to try and cultivate...

    Hi y'all,

    I've been REALLY into my garden this year <----------see my blog "Halla's Flpibook" - SP Blogs <---- shameless self promotion>

    In the course of it all I realized I wanted more...MORE I TELL YOU!!!!

    Here's some plants I might try to grow this season or next.
    Anyone have any experiences with these varieties and/or this vendor?

    I'm also interested in growing a massive border of mixed poppies...no, no, not "Papaver Somniforum", the opium poppy, just the pretty flowers.

    Anyone have poppy growing tips to share for outdoor, part shade, and full sun environments?

    Thanks in advance for any contributions you make to this thread!

    With that kind of entheusiasm I just might to get a few of those!

    Plus, they are blue, and blue flowers seem to be hard to come by...

    Check out this blue grass:

    You don't need a yard, just a terra cotta pot, or a flower box, or a container of somekind where it has exposure to some sunlight throughout the day!

    This garden looks bad ass.
    The ultimate starter's gardem, it survives even drought:

    Drought Tolerant Sun Garden - $84.99 (Yikes!)

    Would be cool to see that one grow...

    Cheers Gromit!

    If I ever live in a dry climate I'm so getting a drought resistant garden, the plants are soo pretty. though I did kill cacti, how do you do that? I don't know, but that's how awesome I am at keeping plants alive, plants that are impossible to kill I still kill.

    Yeah it's true! I've been doing container gardening for years now. It's nice, but there is a limit to what you can do. I'm actually growing some spinach right now on my windowsill, though. There may not be enough direct light, but we shall see.

    I was going to get a bagged mix of this Texas/OK wildflower seeds for the small entry way that keeps killing everything else we try to plant in it.

    http://shop.wildseedfarms.com/Texas_...oductinfo/3341

    We have two sago palms flanking our house, and climbing roses around the fountain that I need to fix. I'll be sure to take pictures when I get around to it. My garden in the backyard is being bombarded with grasses and weeds, but I'm still enjoying it.

    You should try KUDZU, it will grow perfectly for you...and your whole town too!

    That looks like an awesome mix of Texas wildflowers!!! I'd plant them in peat pots to start them off, and protect them frm squirrels (tree rats) and/or bunnies, and then just drop a bed of fresh topsoil down, insert the peat pots where desired, and pinestraw over it! Yeee Haaaaaw!

    I have two sago palms also! They are awesome! No climbing roses yet though...

    Interesting. There is this stuff called "Round-Up" it works really well...
    I kill the fuck out of my weeds with chemicals, at least in beds of plants I'm not eating from.
    Otherwise it's an effort of pulling and digging!
