Somehow I have too many jugs and/or boxes.

The boxes had cracks in the corners so the cracks are the drainage holes.2012-04-02/CarolineScott/9720332012-04-02/CarolineScott/0087df

Begonia starts 2012
Posted on Apr 1, 2012 11:25 AM

Begonia tubers were started mid March this year.

Last year I began in February and they were too lanky by June and many broke off.

Now on April 1, a few less than half have sprouts.2012-04-01/CarolineScott/feb31e

2012 starts
Posted on Apr 1, 2012 11:20 AM

Anthyllis montana was started as seeds on moist paper towels and then

pricked out to soil.

It was recommended to be grown as an annual here.

I have since found it listed in a book on Hardy Perennials written for Alberta.

They are also called "Lady Fingers".

It is a pea like plant which I hope to use in containers and in the rock garden.
