Garden in a Glance

I've had so much fun with my gardens this year that I decided to start a series of garden pictures to show them to you. 
This one is my first try with wave petunias. They're in my front yard where they get tons of sun and can be enjoyed by anyone who passes by. They have been a joy to me and well worth the investment, spreading to fill my SFG box (about 4' x 4'), just as I hoped they would. They're low maintenance and bloom the entire summer! For an annual, you really can't get better than this.

(This picture was taken a couple weeks ago and by now the melon plant in the center has begun to take over, so I'm glad I took the pic when I did.)

It looks beautiful! I have actually had the petunias come back 3 years in a row. I just left them in the garden until the spring when they are really dead, then I pull them. You have to weed carefully, but once you recognize what the leaves look like, it isn't too hard. They thrived the best and were the most full!

Really?! That's fabulous. I hope that happens to mine too. When you say "pull them" in the spring, do you mean pull out the dead stuff after the new plants sprout?
