The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Hello BIC friends and fellow gardeners! Whether you have a container on your balcony, some indoor plants, a whole garden, or even if you just happen to visit a botanical garden or see a lovely space or plant in your neighborhood you want to share, this is the place! Please share pics, tips, plans and tricks about all things gardening!  

 

For many years I had a container balcony garden with mostly flowers and herbs (when travel allowed), and I am now embarking on my first backyard landscaping and gardening journey. 

I am often taking inspiration from the natural world around me and have recently had some spring inspiration for the Makeup Challenge of the Week and have loved chatting about gardening in our other threads, so I thought a new thread would be nice. 

Itโ€™s always so interesting to me to see plants and gardens from different regions and countries, so I hope youโ€™ll join the conversation!  

PS: if you create a makeup look based on some plant or garden inspiration, please feel free to post your look or flat-lay here, too! 


Here are a few pics of my spring bulbs to start and Iโ€™ll share more soon (kindly ignore the weeds)!

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

I find them exotic as well @JoSometimes ! I am used to the plants that grow in your area, because they are the ones that grow where I was born. But the really exotic ones are the ones in south Florida ๐Ÿ˜

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Updated allium pics! Iโ€™m so thrilled with these and canโ€™t wait to plant more in the fall, lol!

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

The allium are so beautiful, I love the colour @sister13 

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Thanks @dimesandnichols , Iโ€™m so happy with them too! 

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous @sister13!!! They are so beautiful!! ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ and adding more is going to make the area look even more spectacular! 

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Thanks! They are so fun! And I think people acan be  intimidated/not interested by gardening, so Iโ€™m realizing many people have no flowers in their yards, so Iโ€™ll have to make up for that, lol. @Saradestin 

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Your alloums are growing so well @sister13!

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Thanks! Iโ€™m honestly as surprised as anyone, but so glad they have turned out so well! Our soil is straight up clay so I donโ€™t know how anything grows in it but hoping some of the native plants and others Iโ€™ve chosen will thrive like the bulbs have. @JoSometimes 

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

As things grow and decompose, the soil will improve. Youโ€™ll have a lush, green garden in no time @sister13!

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Yeah, I wish I had gotten to do the sheet mulching everywhere I wanted to do over the winter (and didnโ€™t get to), but I agree, itโ€™ll get there eventually! @JoSometimes 

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Onions and garlics donโ€™t require rich soils so I am

sure that they will grow as happy as you can already see @sister13 

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Your allium are gorgeous, @sister13 ! ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Thank you so much! They have been making me smile, I donโ€™t know how they stand so tall and straight even with our crazy wind and driving Rain this spring! @Titian06

Finished tire planters with flowers that my kids picked out. Gerberas, dianthus, strawberry, some creeping thyme, among other plants they picked out. It was more about colour and wow factor for them than picking specific varieties. 

 

And after all this work, they STILL went to dig up other pots in the yard! ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿซ ๐Ÿ˜…

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

The tires are so cute @JoSometimes ๐Ÿ˜

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Thank you @dimesandnichols! I canโ€™t take all the credit though. My kids picked out the flowers. 

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

@JoSometimes - I love dianthus!  I used to have these planted at my apartment.  They were transplants from my grandmother's stash! ๐Ÿ˜ญ  I also love daisies.  My avatar before this one was of daisies.

 

Your tire planters turned out great!  Probably why your kids wanted to dig elsewhere. ๐Ÿคฃ

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

They are quite pretty @Titian06! And I love that you took some from your grandmothers stash. That sounds really special.

 

They donโ€™t seem to dig the sides of pots that have creeping thyme. I might need to have pots that are just ground cover to keep everything from getting dup up. 

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Those are so awesome! Some of my favorite memories are gardening with my mom and my dad! @JoSometimes 

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Thanks @sister13! I did the same thing with my parents when I was a kid too! So many good memories. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Wow! They look so beautiful @JoSometimes! I am sure they had a blast!!
