I emptied out a bit of my plant ghetto today but all the plants in the above picture are still left over. Some I am keeping in pots until they grow a bit larger, some are waiting for annuals to be finished so they can take their place, some are waiting for some new beds I’m making, and finally some I just HAD to have but am not really sure where they are going to go.
