Gorgeous flowers :star_struck:

I just got new Dinner Plate Dahlia bulbs to plant & Spider Lily bulbs too!

I haven’t decided if I want them in the ground or larger planters for the yard.

You have a gorgeous collection @Undomeher

Ohhh I love them even more now :heart_eyes:

I need to figure out what kind of flowers will survive here in Florida :laughing: we get a lot of rain and wind during the summer months and we have a million different kinds of bugs. I just need to be better about it, I guess :woman_shrugging: You’ve got a wonderful collection of flowers, though!

@Undomeher These are gorgeous!! I am now planning more flowers for next year!


@MeganB Bolivian Sunset Gloxinia and Heuchera like moist, well-drained soil.

I get a lot of rain here in Houston and I use Moisture Control soil in pots. I ensure the pot has a hole on the bottom and fill the bottom with rocks to ensure it can drain well. Then add the soil and plant the flowers. I have knock-out roses and Coleus (can’t remember the exact kind). I have tried lavender but it got too much water and died. I am going to try again with sandier soil next spring.

Also, you can always plant native wildflowers.

Native wildflowers is what I’m leaning toward. I want to do some in my back garden where I’m going to plant my vegetable garden. I just gotta figure out how I want to do it :blush: Thank you for the suggestions, too!

Doing them within your vegetable garden is great! They will attract pollinators. You can also see if any are natural bug deterrents or “traps”.

I’ve got a lot of research to do! :laughing:
