Gardener’s almanac

More snake-plant blooms — After one reader wrote me about his blooming snake plant, Judy Rasmussen wrote to tell me about her experience: “I have eight snake plants I inherited from my grandmother in 1980. Most of them have bloomed every year for at least the last 20 years. I don’t know if they ever bloomed for her. I didn’t even know they had a bloom. This year there were six of them which just finished blooming. They produce a very sweet smell. I keep them outside on the north side of the house in the summer and move them into my glass atrium for the cold months. I also keep my geraniums and other supposedly ‘annual’ plants in the atrium and they bloom all winter. It’s great to look past the blooms and see the snow falling.”
