I bought a couple of asparagus ferns for our deck three years ago and planted them with a few petunias in the same flower pot. I wanted to keep the ferns from one year to the next so I pulled out the spent petunias and brought the ferns inside during the cold months.
Last summer some petunias tried to emerge from the soil but the plants never got bigger than four small leaves.
A blooming petunia surprised me a few weeks ago.
At least one seed got enough sunlight and water to make it. And yes, that is a solar light that I just left in the pot. No, it doesn’t get enough light inside to glow at night.
Perhaps more will plants will grow and bloom once these pots get back outside.
If it ever warms up enough.
