May 22, 2023. The Ferry Morse Pastel color Mix Asters Review results are good. Zone 8b is hot so they lasted until mid May and then they were ready to be replaced with caladiums.

Transitioning the greenhouse to Summer Growing
This year is going to be different and hopefully better than last year. It was simply too hot to grow anything in my greenhouse during the summer, even with the shade cloth, so I am simply making it into a shade tunnel this year. I am up potting my citrus trees and planting tomatoes and peppers which will be updated later.

Time to pull the tulips and plant asters and painted daisies
In zone 8b tulips are grown as annuals. I am happy to try asters and painted daisies this year. I will update later.
I hate to see them go
The tulips are winding down and they are treated as annuals in my climate but I have some painted daisies and asters to try this year.

It’s Tulip Time in January!
Hollywood,Blushing Bride and Ballerina Amaryllis
These lovely amaryllises bloomed in early January. The Ballerina was very bright tangerine, double and frilly. It seemed like a smaller flower but it more than made up for that with quite a statement of color. Blushing Bride reminds me of Apple Blossom’s color but it has some different patterns and is lighter in color. The Hollywood Amaryllis is definitely showy with the decorative speckles showing behind the bloom as well.

Crazy Weather but good growth
I found an Asian lady beetle on my turnip leaves today. I notice good growth on the cabbage and onions in spite of the crazy weather. My tulips are beginning to bloom in January!
