Hey everyone! I haven’t written in a while so I thought I would give you some updates. I am absolutely loving Horticulture Class. Over the last 2 weeks, we have transplanted over 2,000 flowers. They all look great. We boosted them today with bloom booster. Our flower sale is May 10th and 11th. The petunias I planted are beautiful. They look great, especially the hanging baskets. We had 50 but we donated 2 to the volunteer banquet for the raffle. There are 3 petunia plants in each basket. The baskets were a huge hit at the banquet. I have also been doing some cuttings of sage, clerodendran and begonias. In a couple of weeks when the mist bench isn’t filled with flowers, I am going to do an aloe vera project. We have a lot of aloa vera plants. Some of them look terrible, some of them look great. I am going to throw away the bad and take cuttings of the good and hopefully have a bunch of good looking plants. I am excited for that project.
Also about 7 weeks ago, I had an orange in the chow hall. Well, I took 2 seeds/pits and decided I would try planting them. I didn’t think they would sprout. But after much research and proper care, I was successful. So I have 2 orange trees growing. Haha!
Unfortunately, I don’t think they will get big enough to produce fruit, but it is still cool. That is about all that is going on in class. I have found another passion. 🙂
