Winter Sowing Results / End of April Garden Update – Cut Flowers and Vegetables

Even though it’s still raining and I still haven’t had the opportunity to plant a lot of my leafy green vegetables, we’re quickly approaching the last frost date for my garden. Here, I generally use the date of May 5th as my frost-free date – though, I’ve heard people say that it changes each year. I just wanted to quickly share what’s going on in the yard, as well as the progress of the winter sowing containers.

Flowering Tobacco Nicotiana
Red Shiso
Oregano
Rudbeckia
Cleome
I have no idea what this is – I think it might be ageratum, but I’m not certain.
Verbena
Shasta Daisy
Petunias
Salpiglossis – Also, a few snapdragons mixed in – I’m not sure how that happened.
Asters
Yarrow
Feverfew
Sage – noticing some black spots….
I don’t know what this is either – I think it’s maybe some ground cherry.
Rose Campion
Mint
Coleus
Rosemary
Marigolds
Roselle
Tomatoes are still in closed winter sowing bottles.
Peppers are also still in closed containers.
Celosia
Peanuts
Miscellaneous wildflower seed mix growing in a cardboard shipping box.
Siberian wallflower planted last year are now blooming.
The last of the double tulips have started to bloom.
I think the johnny jump ups look so cute.
A closer look at the johnny jump ups.
I planted some lima beans – they’ve managed to push their way to the surface.
The chamomile is finally starting to bloom.
I started my nasturtiums in a cardboard box.
I grew one icelandic poppy succesfully!
I can’t wait to transplant everything into its place in the garden. I’m getting kind of tired of looking at the garbage.

That’s it! I sincerely hope that you enjoyed the quick tour of all of the plant seedlings I’ve started for the garden. As always, I’d love to hear your questions down below in the comments! Hope you’re having a great day!

  1. Lots of work, but you will get to enjoy the fruits of your labor in a few months. Can’t wait to see everything in bloom. You make me want to get out there and work in my garden. Maybe next year when I’m retired. Love following your progress. Keep it up you have a lot of good advice.
