ASPARAGUS AND SILENE IN THE POTGER (アスパラとフクロナデシコがポタジェで元気に開花中!)


We planted young plants of asparagus in a raised bed several years ago.
Some of them died, but the others (purple) have survived
and grow their stems and leaves now.
We also started to grow Silene pendula before asparagus
by sowing seeds which were included in a 'wild flower seed mix'.
At first there were pink and white flower varieties,
however, a variety of pink flower disappeared.
So, there remains a white-flower variety. 
Both asparagus and silene have started to bloom.


Asparagus is supported by hand-maid iron rods with loops.
アスパラガスは手作りの鉄製の支柱で支えています.

Silene is perenial, and it easily grows from self-sown seeds
フクロナデシコは多年草で、こぼれ種からもよく育ちます.

数年前にアスパラガスの苗をレイズドベッドに植え、
いくつかは枯れ、いくつかが残っていて、
今茎や葉を伸ばしています.
アスパラガスの前にフクロナデシコも育て始めましたが、
こちらはワイルドフラワーのミックス種から育てました.
最初はピンクの花と白い花がありましたが、
ピンクは消えてしまって
今は白い花だけ残っています.
アスパラガスもフクロナデシコもちょうど花を咲かせ始めたところです.
