usi aluminiu said...

In my garden i can`t grow snapdragons. They need something special or i don`t know, some conditions?

what's the usi stand for? i grew up in evansville, home of university of southern indiana.

snaps are a BREEZE... they need abundant sun, well-drained soil (no problems there), and sometimes some support (tho i often let them flop and then they grow bushier). timing is probably the hardest thing--they take FOREVER to grow from seed. in my garden, all the snaps you see are volunteers from last year's crop. i also collect seed and plant it in windowboxes in september. they take a hundred plus days to mature... and they stay tiny most of the time. but as soon as the weather warms, they take off.
