Is there a way I can use seeds from these dead Giant Hibiscus Flowers to germinate new plants next season?
Giant Hibiscus: Curious that when a flower opens, then closes/dies, can you use it for seeds to germinate to grow new plants?
This is what I used around my garden where I have raised beds. We're in the country so we used what we had a lot of, which is trees.
Here's another peak:
We just use large rocks to create borders around our gardens. Small pavers work great, too!
We use garden blocks glued together with PL Premium for a nice sturdy wall that will last forever.
Using a square shovel, or edging spade, create a natural edge that is about 2 inches deep around the beds. When you mow, you can zip around the beds. Zero cost, unless you don't have a shovel or spade.
