Reseeding Plant Material for Transplanting

29 Aug

I was very happy to see 5 Goldenrain trees sprouting up from where one was removed because of bad health. I now have 5 healthy trees to transplant to other areas of my garden. This tree is one of a kind in bloom.

Crape myrtle trees are another plant dropping seeds to sprout others to transplant.

There are several plants that will come back year after year, saving homeowners a little cash. Greensboro, NC temperatures are mild enough for the seeds to set root again and again for us to enjoy gorgeous plants without having to purchase repeatedly.

For 3 years, pink periwinkle annuals have returned in abundance.

White periwinkle annuals has also returned for a second season of spectacular blooms.

Another favorite annual, although a vine, is black-eyed susan vine.

I just let is ramble on the ground and find it’s way to the wrought iron fencing.

This is a summer and fall bloomer and works great for those autumn garden parties.

If you would like to try another reseeding vine, plant perennial sweetpea.

They make a great flower bouquet for a small vase. They also have a sweet scent.

This is the second bloom period for my perennial sweetpea vine. Many seedlings have been given away for others to enjoy. The colors are soft pinks, purple and white. Even the stiff stems create interesting centerpieces for your tables.

AHHHH BASIL. Very much welcome in my garden.

It came up again and this herb is used almost daily in this home. 25% of the genes here are from Italy.

Don’t think you need a separate herb garden for your culinary plants. My basil, tomatoes and rosemary plants are incorporated directly into my landscape.

Either leave your surprises where they begin to grow or transplant the little pretty’s to other parts of your gardens in the late fall, when plant material is going dormant.

Happy Planting!

    Golden Rain Trees have been recommended for our yard in Greensboro. Where can we see some Golden Rain Trees in Greensboro? Also, we read that they produce a lot of offshoots. Are they a problem to maintain in a yard?

      Good Morning Ken,

      Some people would agree producing seedlings is a good thing. However, if you plant a nice dense groundcover beneath the tree, this will hinder seeds from sprouting. Juniper could be an option, otherwise it is very easy to pull up trees and you may even want to give some away. They are just now turning golden yellow in my garden.

      Happy Planting!
