I planted 'Red Hot Pokers' (kniphofia uvaria) in my flower garden back in 2010. That year i was hoping to create a red garden. Some plants never survived but the 'Red Hot pokers' did. They are so easy to grow, flowering each June with very little effort on my part.
i often think of my vegetable garden as the salad garden because year after year i have the most success with the tomato and cucumber plants. i find myself eating tomato and cucumber salads each and every day.
