Nursery and Guerilla Gardening – The Storys continue

I’d like to give you an update on the nursery search: Last week we went out to buy some stuff and came across a nursery close to a cemetery. It looked very nice, open greenhouses with decorations and some people were working on the plants. One asked us if he could help and I asked for tomato plants. He showed me some, but they were just usual ones, so I asked for more unusual varieties, which he hadn’t. But he gave me the tip to go to a certain nursery expecially for vegetable plants, that usually has a lot of varieties. I knew the nursery, because I used to work at a radio station near it. We went there and found an older woman and a young one, who was obviously just visiting. I guess the older woman was the mother of the owner. The owner himself was working somewhere in the greenhouses. The woman helped me to choose varieties especially for balcony gardens. She told me it would be better to choose plants with smaller fruits, that are more prolific. I should keep in mind that they might not produce as much as in a garden plot, so it would be important not to choose varieties that have big, but few fruits. I went home with four plants, not tagged, but if I remember correctly they are supposed to be one cocktail tomato, one red and small, one red, small, but pear-shaped and one striped red and yellow. Unfortunately I don’t know the names of the varieties. With these four plants and some italian heirlooms that I’ll receive from my bf’s mother I should have enough! I’m still trying to figure out how to plants the tomatoes and with what to underplant them…

That was the positive update, now the negative: My guerilla gardening plant was ripped out by the “gardeners” who did some weeding in the rose beds. A primrose, ripped out like weed. I was very sad… I couldn’t take a photo of it yet, but it looks basically like the other picture I took, just without the primrose. A cigarette is laying were the primrose once was. You think that looks better?
