The spanish needle is a type of bidens, and the flowers are edible.

So you may remember the newsletter I wrote about my four year old stealing the show when she sang You Are My Sunshine in front of a huge roomful of people at a wedding reception. Apparently besides being a talented singer, she is also quite the comedian. We were out in the yard the other day, and the girls love eating things from the garden. They are always snacking on stevia, mulberries and mint. And we've also found a few wild edibles that they enjoy every now and then. One of them is the spanish needle - a variety of bidens. So I told Maddy that the name of the flower was 'Bidens' and her response to me was 'Is it called that because someone Bid-en to it. . Get it - bit into it'. I have no idea how she came up with that, but she sure keeps us on our toes (and makes us laugh too!)

Make your home gorgeous this season with a porch pot.

Coated fertilizers let you fertilize once, and forget about it for awhile. When we are planting smaller flowering plants and container gardens or porch pots, we always use a scoop of this great fertilizer in the planting hole.  It releases nutrients slowly so that plants are fed over a long period of time - up to 120 days! Plant your next flowers with this fertilizer and watch them grow and bloom away.
Gorgeous color and fancy texture with porch pots.

Garden Tip
Designing Porch Pots

Gorgeous porch pots are easy to plant and you can be as creative or as simple you want. The best rule of thumb to follow is: Thriller, Filler and Spiller. Pick a thriller for the pot, something that grows tall, stands out and will be the focal point of the arrangement. Then choose some fillers - mid-sized plants that will anchor the pot, creating nice texture or color in the middle section. Finally choose a spiller. A plant that cascades out of the pot and adds an extra dimension. No matter how large or small your pot, with a Thriller, Filler and Spiller, you can't go wrong.
