My Other Garden: 365 Days of Growing Things

The other garden I’ve been tending is 365 Days of Growing Things, which will LAUNCH this Friday, June 18th, with lots of fun activities, prizes and services for gardeners.  Here’s a sneak peek at the “signup screen.”

I hope you’ll follow JennMak and me on Twitter @365dayofgrowing and find us on facebook under “365 Days of Growing Things.”

Our opening contests feature items from Two Green Thumbs Mini Garden Center, aHa! Modern Living, Re-Eco, and a pair of Felco #7 hand pruners.  (As well as some other surprises!)

Membership is free, and you’ll also get access to our “Weekly Garden Roundup” (that won’t kill your garden), where we find the best, newest, funniest, and weirdest garden info of the week to share with you.

Garden Bloggers Bloom Day at May Dreams Gardens

Tomato Soup

This is one of the plants I got at GWA last year.  I think it is Echinacea ‘Tomato Soup’.  I BOUGHT a ‘Tomato Soup’ from Plant Delights, but everything looked so pathetic when I planted, and then took forever to come up this spring, that I can’t be entirely sure which one it is.

But, if you need more Pot

Here’s this year’s version.  Plants are from Ball Seed, sent to gardeners and garden writers as test plants around the US.  So far, so good!

Petunia ‘Sun Spun’, Euphorbia ‘Breathless Blush’, Coleus ‘Redhead’

Here’s Some Pot

Today is the official GDRT blog tour.  I’m NOT part of the tour.  I’m a writer, not a designer.  But, since I’ve been going around commenting on all of their blogs, I figured I’d better put up a plant-related daily photo.  This was my front container last summer, and I rather liked it.

To see what the real PROs do, take the Garden Designers Roundtable Tour, here. I guarantee you’ll be inspired.
