Sounds nice Thelma, but I still work and am not able to attend functions yet. One day in not too many years look for me.

 I am Vice President of the Riverdale Garden Club and looking for speakers for programs for the through May, 2013. If anyone could speak on any subject pertinent to gardening or yards, I would appreciate hearing from you.  We are a small club meeting in an informal setting in members homes in Saline County the 2nd Thurs of the month at 1PM for program and desert. And we are accepting new members! Thelma Poole (Shelli's Mom)

Holy moly! A group for me! I have 3 gardens. Vegetable that is. I work a fourth and this is an open invitation to work it too. It is located behind rural dale school on hwy 70. The old school turned flea market. The very nice lady that owns it invites the community to work it. It is about an acre and has plenty of space left to plant with some crops (okra, peas etc.) that need tending. C'mon out!

These are for you Harper. As you can see the latest gift  has now bloomed, and the Gardinia you gave me is happy and in bloom.

Thank you so much for the gifts.

I love the Pansy's Harper. I too have some that are still doing well.  I go to Janet Carson's site and to P. Allen Smith's site to find out what I want to know about what to plant and when it blooms. 


I know nothing that excites me more than flowers in bloom and a beautiful yard to sit in and enjoy.

Regarding two Yellow Bells (Tecoma stans ) growing in large, deep planters. They are about 9 years old. Each year, we cut them way down and place them under our house for the winter. Two questions: (1) We left them under the house a bit too long this time and they have long stems sprouting out everywhere. Should we cut those sprouts off now, or should the bushes be allowed to go wild this summer then be normally cut in the fall; and (2) we are going to sell them at our Moving Sale this weekend. Any opinions as to a fair asking price for them? They are so beautiful and I want to preserve them for their next owners, as well as give them advice about those darned sprouts. We brought them with us from Houston in 2007 and they've done great in their large pots. Just too much for us to handle anymore. Thanks very much for your help!

Depending on how you go about it, some kind of flowers can be started almost every week of the year. Check Kathy's comments below to see things being started inside. Will you be planting seed or the plants that are available from the likes of Wallyworld?

It's important to plant those flowers that are suitable for the sunlight at their location. Is your area full sun or partial shade?

One of the easier flowers for beginners that should be planted from transplants in March are petunias. They do best with a lot of early sun and a bit of afternoon shade. If you want to try from seed get going right now with an inside setup. The seed is very small and needs light to germinate. Do not cover the seed with soil, but lightly press the soil surface and seed to ensure good seed to soil contact. Some petunia seed comes in a coated pellet to make it easier to handle than the tiny seed. The coating blocks the light needed for germination. I wash the coating off in a coffee filter before planting.

Gardening is full of failures, especially when learning. Don't discouraged.

My mamaw had flowers, flowers everywhere!  Oh how I want to have flowers like my mamaw had flowers.  A hodge podge spread out across her yard, beautiful colors - I scarecely think she had a plan, she just planted - and in Eastern Arkansas gumbo nonetheless. 

There is a house on Springhill Road that has flowers flowers flowers, reminds me of my mamaw's.  Every year I have to stop myself from stopping and asking about all of them lest I scare the beejeebies out of somebody and get the law called. 

I can find 937 "when to plant" articles about veggie gardens but none about flower gardening.  Alas, I am probably too late to plant anything for spring but...well, maybe not! 

Okay, mold me, help me channel my mamaw - what can I plant next and when?
