Urban Renewal Project
October 21, 2013

 The previous three pictures clearly show the "before" pictures of my Plant Planting Project of today, 21 October 2013.

 I planted seven "Sweetness" Yellow flowering Daffidols at the base of the mail box.  This variety was first sold in 1939 and is noted for a superb fragrance.  It reportedly multiplies well.  The package stated to plant in full sun, which I did.  They are to bloom in February and will be about 12 inches high. 

 Anytime I place plants in the soil where I live I dig and set a five dollar hole for a 2 dollar plant.  For this project at the mail box I acquired Fafard 3B Professional Formula for Bedding Plants.

The plants I placed in this mixture named from left to right are:

A pretty untagged plant
Acorus gramines "Variegata"
Ogon Golden Variegated Sweek Flag
Acorus gramines "Variegata"
Nagoa Rose Flowering Kale

All of these plants should grow to at least 12 inches tall.  I covered the Soil Mixture with pine straw to hold the soil in place during the rains and/or watering evolutions.

This is a picture of the completed project.  The plantings were placed on both sides of the Mail Box and are all in full sun so they should do well.
