Don't tell my you've stopped planting already!
This is just the start of the third part of the season and one thing that's a must in my garden is flowering kale.
I grow lots of different varieties. Some are short and stocky, white, pink or purple. Others are airy, but none compare with 'Redbor.'
This tree like plant reaches three feet in a month and thrives in cold weather. Last year two plants went all the way through the winter and put on a show of yellow flowers in the spring.
I use flowering kale like in containers, this week I'm planting a "winter garden" for the latest Digging with Doug video.
I'm going to fill a hillside with pots filled with mums, flowering kale and pansies. I can see them from the living room window. There's nothing like a little color to nurture the soul during the long cold winter.
'Redbor' pairs perfectly with bright yellow pansies, putting on a show at least through Christmas.
Find some cool loving plants like flowering kale and pansies and find a place for them. You'll be so glad you did in about a month.
