Fertilizer Friday/ Flaunt Your Flowers March 19/10


Fertilizer Friday is the day when gardeners from all over the world join in and share the blooms of their labors! After an incredibly busy and stressful week, it is nice to know I can relax and take a peek at some of the loveliest blogs-and the gardens they showcase....
If you are new to this party...WELCOME!!! If you are a regular...WELCOME BACK! Anyone can post plants of any are all welcome...the more the merrier!
Now...if you are not familiar with the winter rules will be...since I have ZERO to gardens are bare...I (and other gardeners in similar climates) are sharing our favorite photos from months, gardens, years gone by, or the current indoor gardens and houseplants that they have. Those who have real live beauty to share are doing just that!
I would like to add, that if you are not a may still join in. The name Fertilizer Friday actually was coined to remind those of us who like to feed our greens, but forget! Fertilizing is not a must...but the flaunting...IS!

This week I have been working my dirty little fingers to the bone while my lovely assistant is at school!!! I have had 8 full hours in the greenhouse and I thought I would have finished by now…but sadly (haha) I have a few more hours to go. It is neat to go in there each afternoon and see the changes.


My Geraniums are getting their leaf colors.


The Rudbeckia is all fuzzy and green.005

The Loofa are taking over the joint…007

Dianthus is getting bigger by the day.008

The petunias are getting more petunia-ish…is that a word? haha009

Dahlias are getting tall!!!010

I planted the Marigolds on Monday…and here is a sign of success! Can you see the little plant?012

I am such a bad mom…I am standing on the table taking photos…my assistant just threatened to spank my bum!


Things are sprouting…and the place is filling up!015

As of the end of next week I vow to myself to be done the seeding part of the greenhouse process!!! After that…transplanting and thinning out…yep…that’s the plan!

Hi Tootsie thought I was the first one on your blog, but I guess not. Your green house looks like its hoppin, and the plants look great. You have such a talented green thumb. This is coming from someone who is coming from someone who is extremely predjudice, because I think you are very smart and very talented in anything you do. Have a great day Lovin the BILE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tootsie said...

For anyone who is wondering who BILE mom. She inherited that nickname just a few short weeks ago!
hugs to you BILE! haha

Hi Tootsie. Your greenhouse looks awesome. What fun to play in there. I sure can't wait for planting season. Everything is so drab right now. I can't wait to learn a lot from you this season.

Maureen said...

I have an admission....I am soooo jealous. Everything looks fabulous! Those baby geraniums are so darn cute!

P.S. You've already seen my post - I just tweaked it a little.

Justine said...

Whoa, I see a big change since last week! I don't know how you do all of this every single year. It's SO much work. But now I can't wait to see the dahlias bloom! How many months do you think it will take?

Justine :o )

Sunny and beautiful here in BC. My lawn guy came today and mowed. The weeds are filling up the garden beds and I have to try to get out there this weekend.
That is the trouble with this warmer climate. The weeds grow all year long.
I love seeing the little seedlings growing there. Such progress.

Teresa said...

You are going to have sooo many plants to enjoy. They all look very healthy and strong. have a great Friday and thanks for hosting FF. It's fun to see other people's gardens especially when there is so little to look at in my own yard.

Larry said...

I'm pleased to finally have some bloom outside, although we are expecting snow on Saturday... Your greenhouse looks great... I may start night time heat after this upcoming four day cold spell. Right now I have 250 delphiniums planted out there, but not germinated. I also have about 500 or so seedlings of my daylily crosses in the greenhouse... does anyone know what they can stand for low temps? My rhodochiton are under lights and have not germinated either... need to start petunias soon... have a marvelous weekend... this spring fever is a great condition to have! Larry

Julie said...

Hi Tootsie...sorry I haven't been around in a while...sometimes I still just have trouble with your blog loading, and the comments box! I got in tonight though! YEAH! Your greenhouse is amazingly full...can't wait to see the upcoming gardens, eh??? Awesome work, girl! I am too sux don't take any time...a very lazy girl, I am!!! Hee hee hee...:)

Andrea said...

Could I just kidnap you to work miracles in my yard...??

Love the Decor! said...

You are amazing to tackle such a project
I love Geraniums and petunias and they are alway a "staple" in my pots every year. Never thought about starting them from seed. Hubby would love all the money I would save : )
Have a great weekend

deb said...

Tootsie, we aren't going to be able to find you soon...the loofah's are gonna get you!!! LOL
They are a hardy bunch, eh?
I can't believe how fast everything is growing. They are very happy seedlings. And the MArigolds! You just planted them Monday? Holy Cow! I see their little heads popping up.
BTW, thanks for the reminder! I'd forget my head if it wasn't attached lately. LOL
*Big Hugs*
Have a happy gardening weekend!

The Muse said...!

The Green Pea said...

I just popped in for a moment, you are going to have a beautiful garden with all of those lovely plants this summer. sandi

CiNdEe's GaRdEn said...

Wow that is amazing how much the geraniums have grown! It seems like you just planted the seeds! They will be blooming soon!!!(-:

Self Sagacity said...

It is not too late to plant petunia seeds is it? I just bought some last week. Your green house looks so inviting! I love FF and join when I can, so I am here this Friday. :-)

Gatsbys Gardens said...

I only have one daffodil blooming which is my flower for Fertilizer Friday!


Becca's Dirt said...

Good morning Toots. Mine is up.

Your place is looking awesome. So many things are up and looking so full.

Looking at all you have there is making me cringe when I think about the pain from getting down on the ground or of squatting down and killing my back and knees. Ya know I'd rather take that shovel and dig the grass and even pick it up than to actually set the plant in the ground.

Catherine@AGardenerinProgress said...

I love seeing the inside of your greenhouse! You must really have so much fun working out there with so much space to start so many seeds.
I started Dianthus for the first time this year and hoping I get lots of flowers from them.

squawmama said...

It never fails to amaze me how wonderful your plants do... You are the QUEEN for sure! Wear your crown with pride my friend.

Autumn Belle said...

I put your logo on my sidebar. Everyday, everyone can see your lovely, lovely logo. Thinks are looking great for you and your greenhouse. Cheers!

Unknown said...

It's always so full and busy in your greenhouse but it all looks great. Your Geraniums are sure looking good. I don't think the 2 different looking ones I kept in my greenhouse made it. But then I don't have heat in it. Whatever makes it - makes it. If not . . . I cry. Not really!
Hey your Rose Mallows were the first seeds to sprout in my winter sowing jugs. HOORAY!!!!!

Lona said...

Well I am really messed up this morning. I posted my FF on last weeks linky. Duh! Having a Duh day. Don't laugh it comes with age. See what you have to look forward to. LOL!

Oh they are starting to look petunia-ish ;-) You reminded me that I have to sow my Dahlia seeds yet. No more room. Happy Spring Tootsie!

La Petite Gallery said...

Tootsie with the green thumb, Goodness it is all growing so nicelyy, I can.t believe the progress, I better water my plants .It won't be long I can get them outside.. Love your post,

linda may said...

Copy and paste is beyond my skills, I know I should but more thing to remember.....Sorry Tootsie, I hope linking in here is enough.
Your plants have really shot forwards since last week. Especially the geraniums and loofahs.

The JR said...

Hey Tootsie,
I bet you never rest! You always have so much going on....
