Tulips are my favorite bulbs but the deer will feast on them in any non-fenced area of my yard. I made that mistake the first year I moved into my house, planting dozens of lovely tulips. Perhaps 4 of them survived the deer buffet.
What a fantastic idea...a plant swap in Belgrade where you can bring your plants, cutting, knowledge, etc. and end up adopting new houseplants from others in the area. It's practical, fun, social and about as wholesome as it gets.
This year has just a few, colorful gardening successes for me. Usually I have plenty of flowers and vegetables, but the only things I can take pride in have been my simple flower baskets and pots. How is your garden growing?
