Jenny Kas has been the queen care giver of the garden for the last two years.Much love, and many cans of water, will make an oasis. Thank you Jenny!
Beautiful...Thank You to the Care givers~
Beautiful !Thank You !
That is a lot of work. I know. For three years I have been hauling gallons of water from my 6th floor apartment two-thirds of a city block to water two tree pits I care for. I know what dedication and brawn this takes. Every newly planted tree requires a minimum of 30 gallons of water each week of its first summer. Please water the street trees. We need them to combat global warming and keep our air clean.
Thank you Jenny Kas! And thankful for this rare occasion that the city installed a real pedestrian island to protect the bike lane and shorten the crosswalk (Bloomberg administration of course, DeBlasio administration it is just painted islands used as parking spots for NYPD employees).
The water is carried out by hand, gallon upon gallon, from the sink in the tile bar. A very much appreciated labor of love!
A big thanks from this citizen of the East Village.
I love this lush little sunflower oasis!Do sunflowers return each year, or do they have to be re-planted/seeded?
A raised bed of pressure treated 2 X 8s would help the cause. It would allow for deeper root penetration, retain the moisture longer and prevent the dirt from spilling out.
ah yay! Flower Power! Thanks to the tender of this plot and to all who do the plant,flower and tree care in the hood and city!
The answer isn't all that straightforward on Google but typically yes, they have to be replanted every year, although there are some varieties that don't.
Sunflowers are annual plants. Seeds may fall and produce a new plant the next year. Seeds. Sun. Water.
Ten years ago Raquel had a vision and started the garden, and has kept it thriving for many years all on her own! Now with the help from friends we have created a bountiful array for all to enjoy!Jenny & Michael
