Johnny's annouces Summer of 2009 Photo Contest winner
Tom O'Connor, of Lakeport, Calif., won the Johnny's Selected Seeds contest for best photo of summer 2009. O'Connor took this snapshot of his Butterfly Hummingbird Mix garden.
Grower's Notes: Planted way back in March flowering since late May and still going strong.They look great and the butterflies hummers and bees think they taste great as well and most importantly.First year gardening in this location.Planted along a chainlink fence with dark green plastic privacy inserts making for a serious heat sink given its southwest exposure in an already seriously hot sunny and dry environment not complaining. Plan to plant them extensively around perimeter next year now that I've seen how they've produced and held up in the heat and dry conditions.
