Self-watering planter made from recycled bottles. This actually works. Though I had to use the 2L plastic bottles. I just fill up the bottom to cover the mouth every 2 weeks or so. My herbs stay nice and healthy now! Great for saving plants over winter. -Jenny

In CA it's time to sow larkspur seeds! They grow very easily from seed but won't transplant so sow where they are to be growing. Soft colors bloom all summer.
Rocket Larkspur, seeds to plant
Larkspur, love these beautiful flowers.
The larkspur is the July birth flower. It means lightness and levity. The larkspur is a tall flower and is a variety of delphinium. It is a prized cut flower and flowers between June and September. It is poisonous to livestock.

Herbaceous peonies may not be in bloom yet, but their cousins, the tree peonies, are showing off already. Tree peonies boost even larger blooms than the perennial garden favorite and can be propagated by layering. Bring them indoors to create mini bouquets in just a few minutes.

I love Coleus, one of the most reliable plants in my Florida garden. Very easy to propagate and share with friends. I discovered a special bonus with this year. If you plant them next to fruit trees and let them flower they attract more bee's to pollinate.
*GERMAN CHAMOMILE* The flowers are used as a nervine tonic. Also anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving for a wide range of conditions along the digestive tract. It is also a blood thinner so never use it during pregnancy or if you take similar medications. homesteadlady.com...

Philadelphus species and cultivars are hardy plants that are easily grown. They do best in a position in full sun, partial shade, or in deciduous open woodland in moist well-drained soil. Planting in full sun will increase flower production. Lightly trim after flowering and thin any congested growth. Propagate from softwood cuttings taken in summer, or hardwood cuttings taken in autumn and winter.

'Walker's Low' catmint (Nepeta x faassenii 'Walker's Low'). Sweetly scented foliage and clear lavender flowers are trademarks, and it thrives in lean soil and sun. This "cat" grows to about 3 feet high and wide, and it's wise to give it that much space to spread. Catmint (Nepeta, USDA zones 3 to 9) is another fast-growing, easy-to-propagate plant that mimics lavender's growth habit and style.

weed-smothering ground covers: 'Walker's Low' catmint (Nepeta x faassenii 'Walker's Low', zones 4 to 8). Brushing its foliage releases a lovely bouquet into the air, and it blooms lavender early to midsummer. I shear mine back a bit with a hedge trimmer after it blooms for a new flush of foliage and flower. This cool cat thrives in sun and lean, dry soil, and you'll be surprised at how far one small clump will stretch. It divides easily in spring if you find you'd like to help it along.
'Walker's Low' catmint (Nepeta x faassenii 'Walker's Low', zones 4 to 8). I mentioned it in our article on weed-smothering ground covers, it's blooming right now in my garden, and it's still one of my all-time favorites. Sweetly scented foliage and clear lavender flowers are trademarks, and it thrives in lean soil and sun. This "cat" grows to about 3 feet high and wide, and it's wise to give it that much space to spread out, because it may shade out other, less competitive plants.
Garden plants that help choke out weeds!
Euphorbia Polychroma 'Midas' A compact mound of mid green foliage bears bright yellow flowers and bracts from spring. In autumn the foliage is tinged red. Cut the flowered stems down to ground level after they have flowered, in late summer or early autumn. The simplest way to propagate this plant is by division. This should be done in late summer to early autumn once it has finished flowering. Generally pest and disease-free. Yay!
