I am discovering that “not getting around to it” can be a good thing when it comes to gardening. Mulching is one of those things. I had no idea that moss rose would self seed. I’d only bought one plant last year and was very disappointed with the display. It probably didn’t help that I didn’t know to deadhead until well into the season. Last week when I went to the nursery and got to talking with one of the gents imagine my surprise when he said moss rose would self seed. I didn’t think that was possible in Zone 7 but sure enough! Went out this morning and found a whole bunch of babies.
The man at the nursery also said that live wire grass was not supposed to come back nor was that variegated green thing you see here. I forget what it’s called. He was very surprised when I told him my containers were full of the grass. There would be more had I know what it was and not planted other things around it.
I think it’s that the conditions were right in the containers. I also planted some in the garden bed, none of which has reappeared. Maybe it likes the soil mix better than dirt.
Yup, not getting “around to it ” has turned out to be a very good thing for me. Anybody else?
