Deborah Silver's garden. Seriously? I read through her blog, she's a humble gardener, which makes me like her even more. She wrote about feeding her containers regularly using these 3 steps: 1. Soak pots with water 2. Soak pots with feed 3. Avoid next watering as long as possible so the plants benefit before watering washes it all away.
Plant lemongrass and rosemary in pots, containers or in flower beds on your balcony or in your garden to have a mosquito free summer! You can use them as herbs in cooking as well. Remember to brush them to release more of their fragrance before your outdoor activity.
NASTURTIUMS:Hummingbirds & Monarch Butterflies Excellent planted with looseleaf lettuce which attract Goldfinch for seeds if left to go to seed. Great planted with herbs. Performs best when left alone, never over water and never fertilize. Leaves and flowers are edible, have a peppery flavor. love nasturtiums and love how they look in planting boxes on this deck. Can also be planted along the edge of a sunny walkway.
