In my garden I primarily focus on growing vegetables. I am trying to grow a few flowers this year so I can expand my gardening knowledge. I planted some marigolds from seed in some decorative pots. I also planted some zinnias around my mailbox from seed. I bought some impatiens seeds, but have yet to plant them. I have a few endless summer hydrangeas that I planted a few years ago, and this year I planted about 20 fashion azaleas along my fence. Most of the flowers are in bloom now so I thought I would post some pictures on their progress.
Endless Summer Hydrangeas - I bought 4 of these from Lowes about 3 years ago and these have got to be the longest blooming hydrangeas ever. These bloom from April to November in my climate and I do absolutely nothing to them. They do tend to droop in the hot summer days of Georgia because I don't water them as often as I should, but other than that they are great.
Marigolds planted from seed have engulfed pot and started to bloom.
I planted these zinnias around my mailbox in alternating rows of red and white. I started them from seed and they are coming along nicely.
