As I’ve been working in the potager behind the house, I’ve been finding Johnny Jump Ups everywhere. I started digging them and using them edge the beds in the potager, figuring them bring some much needed color. Not only that, they’re edible beauties, I can pick the blossoms and add them to salads.
Lucky me, I ended up with enough of these beauties to line the inside and outside of the main circle in my potager. I can’t wait for them to fill in and start blooming more profusely.
I love flowers that self sow readily, at least for the most part. Things like nicotiana, forget-me-nots and anise hyssop. I don’t know if I have found any self sowing flowers that I don’t like yet.
Do you have any flowers self-sow in the garden? Do you love them or hate them?Filed under Around the Garden | Comments (12)
