Growing here alongside chard and Verbena ‘Homestead Purple’ is the beautiful purple ruffles basil.  I call it ornamental but my mom swears it is used in Thai cooking as well.  Either way, this plant lends fabulous foliage contrast and texture to your beds.  It is an annual but drops seed so you will likely have volunteers each year.   Likes full to part sun for best purple color.

Moonflower vine (Ipomoea alba) April 13, 2011

Amazing flowers as big as our hands, they unfurl like umbrellas as the sun’s rays fade.  Wonderful twining on a deck railing, they perfume the air with their sweet fragrance.  Flowers each evening in summer and autumn until the first frost.  Full sun.

Mine made plenty of seed but they were hard to germinate, so I only have a few!

 

Spring is here! March 21, 2011

I’m an Annapolis Gardener with lots of plants to share. Are you a beginner? Yard choked with weeds? Don’t worry. In addition to selling plants, I love talking about gardening, and I’d be happy to share my expertise and get you started. We all were beginners once, and almost all of the plants here require little care, so don’t worry!

Come visit my garden and take home an armload of plants.  Most plants here are $2 or $3 for a small pot, $4 or $5 for large pots, $6 for shrubs.  (Cash only please.)

I plan to keep adding plants as things come up this spring.  I’ve also started seeds for various annuals and perennials that I will sell here.  Keep checking back for the latest.

Gardening has enriched my life so much, and I hope it brings joy to yours as well!

4 Varieties of sweet pea vines, flowering all summer and fragrant.  Wonderful for twining on an arbor, trellis, or fence.  They are listed as annual but mine have returned year after year.

Pictured here: Ms. Willmott (pink) and Flora Norton (pale blue).

Full to part shade.  I have some blooming on my front porch railing, which faces north and receives almost no sun!
