I planted my New Dawn Rose bush three summers ago. Last year I had a few wee lovely pale pink blooms. I have been fertilizing all my roses with coffee grounds and over ripped banana peels since early April. This tip was given to me by a fellow gardener. I have never tried this method before so I decided to give it a go. I could not believe how well my roses bushes responded to this simple and inexpensive way of fertilizing them. The greenery went from a few spikes last year to a lush canopy this year. I was hoping to see heaps of lovely pale pinks blooms and you can see I was not disappointed. These truly lovely blooms started at the end of last week and they keep blooming. Spectacular indeed.
On the opposite of my New Dawn Rose I have these lovely clematis purplish pink blooms climbing to me it. Glorious. I am so very please with my gardens this year.
Last year I never saw my Day Lily and many other bushes and flowers bloom thanks to the pesty deer devouring them every night. My Sweetie, has worked from early Spring trying to keep the deer at bay. We have motion water senors, awful smelling stuff we spray around just about every evening which has helped allot. But the best tip came from my sweetie's co-worker. He told us to buy fish line and string it around our gardens. So my dear sweetie went to the hardware store straight away and purchased fish line and fiberglass poles. Then my sweetie drilled holes at three different heights on the poles and spray painted them green to blend in with the grass. Since installing this simply solution around my gardens we've not had one bloom eaten. I can now see my Day Lillies blooming their hearts out along with many other treasured blooms I did not see bloom at all last summer. Can you tell I am a very happy gardener at the moment. vbg
I never saw my Delphinium bloom last year and look at it now. Glorious.
My Princess Spirea is now in full bloom. I am a passionate gardener and I truly enjoy seeing my plants and bushes blooming. But if it was not for my dedicated sweetie we would have nothing to see in our gardens. I give My Sweetie all the credit for finally seeing our summer flowers and bushes bloom!! Thank you my dear. I love you.
