My Story of Growth and Beauty from Growing Bigleaf Periwinkles in My Garden
Much to my excitement, I planted fifty seeds of Vinca Major, or Bigleaf Periwinkle, hoping to turn a section of my yard into a bright blue carpet. This shrub, which is native to the western Mediterranean and has enticing blue blossoms, is sure to bring a timeless beauty to my outdoor area. This is my tale, from the first seed to the last bloom of these magical flowers.
To begin with, the seeds:
My selection of 50 premium seeds was motivated by my curiosity in Bigleaf Periwinkle's ability to produce an abundance of ground cover due to their evergreen leaves.
I made sure the garden bed was well-prepared and rich in organic matter because Vinca Major prefers well-drained soil.
Planting: To ensure that every seedling has adequate area to grow, I planted the seeds shallowly apart.
Growth Conditions: I picked a site that receives plenty of sunlight but also some afternoon darkness because Bigleaf Periwinkle thrives best in both sun and mild shade.
Watering and Maintenance: Watering regularly was essential, particularly during the early phases of development. Additionally, because Vinca Major likes somewhat drier circumstances, I was careful not to overwater.
Observing the Growth of Periwinkles:
The little green shoots poking through the dirt, the earliest indications of germination, were astounding to witness.
Maintenance: To keep the ground cover in great health and shape and to keep it from being too invasive, regular pruning is helpful.
Bigleaf Periwinkle's Joy:
Aesthetic Appeal: Both neighbors and guests commented on my sea of blue flowers in my yard, which generated a lot of conversation.
Evergreen Beauty: Because Vinca Major is a perennial plant, its beauty is retained throughout the year.
Contentment: Seeing a mature flower sprout from seeds was a gratifying experience that increased my passion for gardening.
