They grew pretty quickly, benefitting from the fact that Steve kept reminding me to water the tomato plants .
We got some nice blooms on them and even some bees visiting!
It soon became evident, however, that the extreme rockiness of the soil did not allow them to get a good root system going. Even though Steve tried staking and tying them to help them stand upright, they never got strong enough stems to support or nourish themselves. Not one of the flower heads set seeds.
I did enjoy watching them grow, even if they didn't do as well as I had hoped.
This year, I've planted mint.
