I keep going out to the deck to see if my nasturtium seeds are ready to collect. I have been checking for at least the past two weeks. I have noticed that when I bump the plant, the seeds fall, but they are still very green. Like this:
Since it's getting pretty late in the season for me, I googled it and found that nasturtium seeds should be collected when green. So I went out and shook a few plants and took whatever fell off inside.
From what I understand, these green seeds will turn brown in a week or so and be ready to save for next year. Do any of you have any experience saving these seeds?
I also removed some of the orange Cosmo seeds to save for next year. These seeds were brown, like I expect seeds that are ready to save, to be.
Last weekend I bought these three new shrubs: 2 'goldmound' spirea and 1 'Wine & Roses' Weigela.
I plan to plant them together in the rockwall garden as I like the contrast in foliage color. I buy for foliage color, the blooms (if they happen) will just be a plus. I have been googling the spirea and I really like what I see. The foliage color changes from a limey green to red in the fall. I would like to get about 5 more of these. Home D. had them on sale for $14.99...great price! They were $24.99. If you have these, I would love to have a comment telling me how you like them.
I just went out and cut down 4 of the flowers on my new 'Limelight' hydrangea.
While I was making dinner, DH went out and bought me 5 more of the 'goldmound'. What a guy!
I know you can only see 4 here. The 5th one is behind the one on the right.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
