    Hello Ladies I am back from the winter break.
    With so many schedule changes on and off. I couldn't really invest time into gardening this winter.
    But I have started an exciting comeback for the spring.
    I have successfully germinated lotus seeds. Out of 5 seeds, just one germinated.
    I will be planting the lotus roots into the clay pot this weekend.
    Planning to have a whiskey barrel lotus pond in the front yard.
    Pics are a few days away.

    You can plant in a container, as large as possible. Cucumber seeds can be directly planted when it gets warm in your area. I use tomato cages as supports.

    blindpup10 - great job. All the best. Will patiently look forward to next stage shots. Patience is one thing I have learnt in gardening.

    :hello:Mellifluous Music seems to enthrall the plants and they grow happily bushy large wide glossy yielding better fruits & flowers with increased harvest. Just my two cents.!
