S. Ahmed: Poppies are lovely flowers for sure... they cannot tolerate heat, even the California Poppy which is said to be very heat resistant.. quickly dies as the temperature rise in late March... That blue flower is Cineraria.. Roses will start going into bed by this weekend... inshaAllah

Rafique: the Cinerarias need some trimming for a better display... they are quickly opening up their blooms..

Colorful update! Bought gerbera for seeds?

You should document seed saving process and post a detailed pictorial about that as well so that we could learn about how to save seeds for next season.

Farhan, i have followed one of your techniques.... keeping moist all the time... this garden is much smaller then the earlier one, so watering it regularly is manageable...
