it is sure to snow in April!
Early in the morning hours........it did just that,
along with much needed rain.
Not sure if this..snow...... actually might happen........
but did you know....
Easter falls on April Fools Day ( April 1st) this year??
It would not be good to get snow!
My bare bones garden at the moment, lies in frozen
wait......as I plan the plots and spaces for flowers......
and for this year a small variety of vegetables.
The roses in the large back corner container are doing well,
even with sleet on them. I pruned them a few days back
and new growth has already sprung forth!
I read on the internet, how to take rose cuttings
with potatoes......to make new rose bushes.
So with the
I pushed each one into a potato,
then planted that into a container/pot
Have you heard of this method?
I now have 8 hopeful new rose bushes
It showed to place a clear soda bottle over the stem,
however, I don't drink soda, so, I placed them into seal
plastic bags......leaving the seal slightly open to prevent mold,
and then placed the pots inside......in indirect light.
I so hope.......they will sprout!
You may also remember that I posted on Wednesday, January 10, 2018
(link here trees)
about the small Arbor Day trees and Bonsai trees I planted.
The Arbor Day trees are still in my shop, doing well,
and to my delight.......one of the Bonsai tree pots
have sprouted! I hope the remaining pots will do the same!
We had gotten so used to the days here being in the 60s and up into the high 70s
and today.........in the 30s
everyone is enjoying the comfort of their beds
Tomorrow.......and the rest of the week.....
in the 50s, 60s and 70s.......
Have you sprouted any kind of flower using the potato method?
If so, how long did it take to grow roots and sprout leaves?
I cannot find this information anywhere.
How is the weather in your area.........is your garden calling to you?
I would love to hear!
