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. 

It’s always so interesting to me to see plants and gardens from different regions and countries, so I hope you’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 I’ll share more soon (kindly ignore the weeds)!

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Well this just made my day, @sister13 - so much cheer and what a vibrant garden you have!! Thank you for sharing.

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Aww, thank you @eshoe ! @JoSometimes It is still 98% mud and weeds (I’m leaving the weeds to help keep the erosion at bay where possible) but I do think eventually it will be lovely! 

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

@sister13 Smart idea to leave the weeds in place until you’re ready! I’m sure it’ll look amazing once it’s all done!

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

These are so bright and vivid @sister13! You have quite the green thumb!

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Thanks, we have been getting a LOT of rain! I should show you the weed collection (essentially th whole backyard) and you’d be really impressed with how well I can grow them! 🤣🤣🤣🤣 @JoSometimes 

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

I’m so jealous @sister13. They’re absolutely stunning 👏

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Awww, thank you - we’ll see if I can keep everything alive! @blackkitty2014 

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

@sister13 Beautiful flowers on a beautiful morning. Watching them bloom and grow is so rewarding. I like the colours of all of the flowers.

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Thank you! It is fun! It’s also fun to watch as things change, like the allium blooms turning into green balls, and the spent peony blooms turn into these alien looking three-pointed things! @Mellmars1185 

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

@sister13 - The Siberian iris is gorgeous so is your Scarlet O'Hara peony. 🥰  The blizzard mock orange may be "scraggly" because it's still in the pot and needs to be transplanted (bigger, better pot or the ground).  Love your pics!

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Yes, I’m thinking I may transplant into some larger pots, but was hoping I’d be able to get in the ground, but may take a little more time. @Titian06 

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

My bougainvillea finally came back around late April and how it was last week. This week it grows even bigger and mostly with bloom

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Thx you @Mellmars1185 . It’s a warm weather plant. I had the tiny tree with half white and half pink but it just tried to came back from the winter. The cold almost killed it and it only has couple leaves now. I will try to take picture 😘
