Freesia planted itself, it  just decided to grow indoors, it was outdoors last summer and I just saved it from the winter.

Did they take? I read you put them in wet paper towel in the fridge for 3 weeks to germinate then plant them in the ground. Cheaper than buying the plant. Besides even when you spend the money the plants may not survive. They like well drained sunny spots.

I have tons of placeS to put them, in the front planters and the side planters. They grow like crazy in the wild.

I have small clusters of freesia that come back year after year but not enough to make a statement. In order for plants to look good they need to grow in large sluggers.

I bought organic lavender seeds. Last time they grew without any tricks. They don't survive outdoors at winter time here and indoors are usually bad to spend a winter too. Lets see if it grows and what happends when I remove it jnside when autumn comes. So they usually die before getting out for for the second summer. But I have a different place now, let's see if they can live. Indoors and winter placing is my problem.

Mine is on the bucket, you would not believe if I would tell the whole story  :D They look good no matter where they are, you know, after coming desperate with nothing grows, even a grass in a bucket looks good!

I think what I read was you place them in the fridge in simulate the dormant condition of the winter so they can germinate but take them out in the spring. Right now the spring is still unusually cold so maybe too early.

It seems my rhododendron survived over winter. No idea if it makes flowers or not. It was just something I bought on sale and without any meaning to plant it as the variety was more like summer season usage. We got more snow today, I build a terrace "wall".

Fairies usually show up in beautiful gardens and forests.

Quote
A fairy (also fata, fay, fae, fair folk; from faery, faerie, "realm of the fays") is a type of mythical being or legendary creature in European folklore (and particularly Celtic, Slavic, German, English, and French folklore), a form of spirit, often described as metaphysical, supernatural, or preternatural.

Yeah, fairy as a fairy is more commonly used so I use it. We have plenty of folklore with odd words that other world does not know and they are not translated. Also there is good and bad spirites, fairies, elvs and all other kind of creatures so their names would not tell anything about their meanings. So fairy is well known as a "good" spirite of something so I use it rather than specific names of something.

I actually love more than anything that landscape with moss and small, especially small spruces. They tend to grow quite a fast but when they are small they are wonderfull forest babies  -heart

On our cabin we have a spot like that and dogs like to roll on the moss. I also love the forest behind to be a lot of trees no matter big or small and not just a couple of trees. I would feel very lost and lonely and afraid without a lot of trees, they are like a hug of environment which holds you in a lap, so overlapped by trees   -hug

In Iceland ppl are more into fairies and gnomes.

Many rocks are sacred as they are portals to elemental realms.
