This weekend I did quite a few moving and planting...
Four newly purchased dormant rose bushes were finally put into the ground. All of them already have new leaves emerging.
This is the corner of the flower bed that contains six rose bushes now, including two "New Day", two "Peace", one "Double Delight", and one pink tea rose (lost the name tag). I will call it the rose corner :)
This is another plant I bought this friday, a double layerd pink Kalanchoe. I love its long lasting rose like blossom!
There are four clumps of Agapanthus Africanus planted in the front garden by the previous owner. When we moved in last summer, two of them were still blooming. The other two that did not bloom are located more deep and behind ixora bushes. They hardly get any sun during the day and I think that is the reason they did not bloom. From this picture, you can see the ones in the back is much smaller than the ones in the front, which get the morning sun.
I decided to move the two smaller ones to the back yard west flower bed, where they would receive morning sun, and a few hour of afternoon sun in the summer. I hope I am making the right decision.
Anybody knows how much florida sun this Agapanthus Africanus needs for it to thrive? And how much is too much?
Here is their new location.
I can not wait to see those gorgeous trumpet shaped white flower dangling down from it! I have been drooling over this one when looking at the pictures on the internet... When it blooms, it should look like this:
I also did some other work in my south east corner flower bad in backyard. I will do another post about it once it finishes.
I always feel a sense of achievement after a busy weekend in the garden. Do you feel the same thing?
Hope you all had a very good weekend!
