Just got a starter kit of basil for Christmas in my stoking. Of course it is too soon to do much with it, but it got the old brain working. Now I am thinking about spring, what we will plant this season and how early I want to start plants seeds inside. We are going to be out of the area from the 5th to the 17th of Feb so will probably wait until we get back to start our seeds.

I am overwintering geraniums. I have three scented leaf varieties, and one fancy leafed one. This is the latter’s second year everwintering under shelter on my back porch. The other three are in my garage.

I found another fancy leaved one that I want! It is Black Velvet Scarlet. I found it in the Selected Seeds catalog I got yesterday. My scented leaf geraniums were found at my local Farmer’s Market. I love having these in pots all growing season. They have interesting and scented foliage. There is something about them I that really love.

But the fancy leaved varieties are so striking and handsome.

I also keep mint in a pot during the sumner.

I had great luck last year with an ornamental grass, for height, and geraniums, in the two urns on the front porch. It gets morning sun, and is part shaded by a Japanese maple. I might squeeze in some petunias or sweet potato vine this year. Only 2 months to wait here.
