Here in North Florida we have begun to experience Fall and Winter simultaneously. Suffice it to say that the Temperature has been as low as the high 20 and as hot as the low 70’s. One of our cold hardy hardy group of plants are the Pansies an their smaller relatives. Two weeks ago we weeded and churned the soil in an oft neglected flower bed. Then covered it with on average 10 layers of newspaper and then an inch of cypress mulch. Ads sprayed the bed with castor oil. If we don’t the armadillos tear the areas apart looking for grubs.

Last week we put in Violas, and Johnny Jump-ups. I will post those pictures when the plants get a little fuller. In the next bed over we will be putting pansies and something taller. But first It has to be prepared. I had cannas there but they never bloomed to my satisfaction
