we're sorta settled right now, and I've dug some really small beds, will be expanding them for sure! I direct sowed some bachelor's buttons and some cosmos and a packet of wildflowers (never wrong with those!) does anyone have any pernnials that you wouldn't mind sharing with me? I have very small clumps of columbine, and some lily of the valley that I can send in return...thanks for looking! if you want seeds, my list is posted somewhere...

Helping the world one seed at a time

When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant. Mary Ann LaPensee

I have, thanks Tammy! I think it might be too late to start the seeds, so I guess I'll have to buy transplants this year for annuals

Kenny PM me your address and I'll send out some things to you next week. No need for anything in return, my gardens are over flowing.


~~Tam~ You can bury all your troubles by digging in the dirt.

nope, I've never had a problem (well, once someone not on this forum decided to send me a tulip bulb in a bubble envelope and forgot to put hand cancel on the envelope...lol)

the crocosmias are doing fine i think, after I moved, I haven't seen them poking up yet...hopefully they should, the tulips are done blooming so any time now!

I just started my zinnias and have to wait until nighttime temperatures reach 70 to plant the celosia. So there are still plenty of annuals that you can start from seed. If you want to.
