Today my Mom and I went plant shopping and had so much fun. We went to a nursery down the road and a larger chain store. I sigh wistfully every time I drive past the nursery, so it was about time that I went. I was not disappointed. What a great local resource!

We focused on plants for the food garden, a couple shade planters and the long back flower bed. I need to figure out what I want to plant in my bigger back flower bed, but that will be soon enough.

Altogether, we bought the following –

Veggies
Cucumbers
Zucchinis
Peppers (Red, Green and Yellow)

Fruit
Tomatoes (Sweet 100, Cherry, and Beefmaster)
Grapes
(will be re-planting strawberries)

Flowers
Moss Roses
Wave Petunias (will need to get more, the area I want to cover is bigger than I thought)
Regatta Sapphire (Lobelia)
Summer Wave (Torenia)
Catalina (Torenia)
Snowstorm (Sateria)
Walkabout Sunset
Asparagus Fern
Variegata
New Guinea Impatiens
Fiesta Ole Rose
Morning Glories (seeds)

I also bought a few different kinds of succulent plants; I will be posting a separate post showcasing those!

Finally, we also purchased a good number of pots/containers. I have some exciting ideas for those containers! Including a fountain and/or water garden.

Stay tuned for posts about our raised vegetable garden we’ve built this year!
