Flower bed, which won´t wither


This blog has two reasons. One is – I want to remember what I seeded when it will come up and I´ll lose its label. Second is I would like to know – from experts on this webpage, or just if you have these flowers too – some specific details.
So – my two charming roses looked very abandoned under the tree, so I created a U-shaped flower bed and seeded there today flower seeds of these flowers:

This is Centaurea cyanus – I wonder, if it needs some special care, or not. Photo are, of course, not mine, but from internet. Just for better imagination.

Leucanthemum maximum – I always wanted to have it in my garden. I am just curious if I seeded it now, weather I will have flowers this year or next year. Also – does it need regular watering?

Hyssopus officinalis – I had just accidentaly found a sachet with seeds, so I put it into the flower bed, too. By the way – it is a very good fighter with weeds.

And something small and everlasting in the front of those bigger flowers – Forget-me-not or Myosotis – in blue and pink flower.

Well, hopefully I will be able to bring you photos of this flower bed in the summer. But first, I must cut the grass. Lol.

good luck with the flower bed Kat, the for-get-me-nots are very easy and dont require much help a bit of water and sun and your ok the same with Centaurea cyanus but i cant help with the others i've not grown them.

Thank you very much. I hope somebody will have experience with Leucanthemum maximum, which interests me most of all.

I don't reckon you need worry too much about the regular watering as this lovely leucanthemum is native to France and Spain.

Really? Then it´s perfect, as I think all those flowers love sunny places and my garden is a little bit of Italy in the summer.

When I moved to my current address there was very little in the garden so I sowed lots of annuals. The Forget-me-nots have self sown every year since and have migrated to every corner of the garden. They are just coming into flower now, such a welcome sight after our looonnng winter. The Love-in-the-mist still appear every year too but have migrated to the veg patch. I hope you find your packets of seed worth their weight in gold for many years too.
