Seed bonanza!

Today I went up to the Sloat Garden Center on Sloat Boulevard and picked up a donation of seeds from them. A huge bag full of great, tough natives! I went straight out to the garden and planted 14 packets of various California poppies (Eschscholzia californica) - "Mission Bells" "White Linen" "Mikado" "Dairy Maid" and the regular old orange ones too.

The "White Linen" went by the steps, the "Dairy Maid" in the left bed, and the rest up in the dog area. Thanks Sloat for this wonderful donation!

Next I planted a few malingering plants left over from our sale - a red Phormium went in to the left bed, along with two Salvia gregii "Moonlight."

Next I weeded the cactus wall (scary work!) and trimmed up the Crocosmias in the red bed. Looking good!
