Chapter 16 Petunias in December

It has been a few months since my last post; busy with autumn leaves, cleaning the beds and planting all my potted Iris.

I thought you would enjoy seeing the Petunias that started by themselves in some of my Iris planting pots. I transplanted them and they held up fine in the greenhouse all the way to the 15th of November. I moved them into the house where they bloomed a few days ago. The average person does not realize how you can have winter blooms like this. What a treat. Nice surprise; I honestly did not plan this. That is the beauty of having a greenhouse. It extends the season. See you by the fireplace.
