More New Plants

My “to do” list is overwhelming and the customers are keeping me busy (hooray!), so the best I can produce for the blog right now is photos of plants I have not grown before. I am a huge fan of pansies and they are flourishing this year.

Matrix Sunrise

Delta Mix Citrus

Basil and rosemary are probably the two best selling herbs here. In the foreground of the following photo is a new variety I am trying, 'Nufar' basil. This is the first fusarium resistant variety of basil and it has a sturdier habit than the other sweet (Genovese) basil I grow from Fedco seeds.

Cascadia Bicolor purple is a variegated and vegetatively grown petunia. It scores high points for the consistency of variegation in the bloom, but the stems are fleshy and more upright than I like, so I will probably not grow this one again.

It is 5:30 am Saturday morning and I must go finish loading the trucks for St. Johnsbury Farmers' Market.
