One plant we are hoping to have success with, although not native to our area is the Rocky Mountain Iris. It is the symbol of the Alberta Native Plant council.
So if you are interested in sowing perennial seeds – sounds like now is the time to act. Mark them with a stake or stick, label and give them just enough moisture to hold the soil in place and let nature takes its course. Start checking for results in April. Once the green shoots start to appear, regular watering in a new sunny location is required.
June made a comment I enjoyed. She referred to some plants as ‘promiscuous’. I shared with her after the meeting that the term I used for the numerous volunteer trees and plants was ‘unplanned propagation’. Either way, you all know what we are referring too. Dealing with volunteers as soon a possible saves a whole lot of of hard work and trouble later. Enjoy the amazing fall weather.
