Renee’s Garden Seeds started a wonderful program called the GROW Project with the help of coordination from garden blogger “Mr. Brown Thumb” to get as many garden bloggers as possible to grow the same plant, write about the experience and build a sense of community and camaraderie with other gardeners. I think this idea is terrific! It’s such a simple and straightforward way to encourage, not only the great garden bloggers out there, but the seed growing part too!
Renee’s Seeds was also very generous to send us all the Double Cosmos ‘Rose Bon Bon’ too! Now the mission is to figure out where my new babies will eventually land in my little garden design world.
I love to re-arrange the plant furniture frequently in my garden and a side benefit of that work is that I use it as an excuse to change up my color schemes in certain planting areas every year. And it just so happens that the lovely, vibrant scarlet of these ‘Spitfire’ Nasturtium plays right into this years color scheme of Oranges, Blue/Purples and Yellow. I can’t wait!
What I can’t decide is where to put these climbing or cascading lovelies. Luckily the Hummingbirds will find these beacons of tasty color no matter where I put them. But, my garden is very small. So, this decision is one that I will be mulling over for a while as the seeds are doing their thing!
Here’s some places that I’m contemplating. What’s your opinion?
Please excuse the background plants. They had a VERY big move in January this year. Currently we’re having three different kinds of crazy winter as of this writing on Easter Sunday! So, I haven’t planted much yet.
OK everybody, now it’s time to put on your voting hats, what’s your idea? Help me decide where these would look MOST tantalizing!
Whoo-hoo! I’m growing Nasturtium “Spitfire” for the GROW project, THANKS to ReneesGarden.com for the seeds.
