Let Your Herbs and Veggies Show Their Bloomers!

Good Sunday afternoon. Other than being windy, it’s a beautiful day out.

So what do you do with your veggies and herbs when they start bolting? Do you pull them up and trash them? Here’s something to think about before you do that: Some herbs and veggies are host plants for butterfly caterpillars, some are nectar sources when they bloom, and some set seeds that the birds like to eat. Instead of trashing them, why not let them hang out, bloom, and go to seed. The wildlife in your garden will thank you.

I have a cart of herbs and veggies that have bolted and need a home. They’re only .25 each.

Carolina Jasmine

Have you noticed lately a vine with beautiful yellow flowers growing through the trees and on fences? That is the native Gelsemium sempervirens aka Carolina Jasmine. She’s a very well behaved vine that grows about 20′. She loves full to part sun, is very low maintenance, evergreen, can grow in large containers or in garden beds, and can be used to cover fences, arbors, etc., or can be used as a ground cover. Oh, those pretty flowers start blooming late winter to early Spring when not alot is flowering…and they’re fragrant. What more could you want in a vine?!

They’re in stock at R&G, 3-gallon containers for $11.99.
