Isn’t this a beautiful sight…. I just love working with seeds and bulbs.
There is just so much promise… and of course the idea of tons of plants for pennies…. I’m all for a bargain!
Like these bulbs I bought for 40 cents a box…..90% off! Even if only a few make it….it is fun to try!
But I did learn a lesson last year, if you only have a few seeds, control how you plant them…. for me that is a container to start with. Here I have 5 pots of pincushion flower, hoping that they can be added along my walkway.
I am participating in something new this year!
The seed GROW project is a communal seed growing project for garden bloggers. The idea behind it is to get as many garden bloggers as possible to grow the same plant, starting from seed. In sharing the seed starting process, experience, tips and creativity throughout the growing season perhaps we'll create a sense of community among garden bloggers who may only know each other online.
ReneesGarden.com has generously agreed to be the the sponsors of the seed GROW project. Renee's Garden is an independent online seed seller of heirlooms, culinary herbs, vegetables and unusual flowers. To kick off the first seed GROW project Renee will be providing us with Nasturtium "Spitfire" to grow in our gardens. This Nasturtium is a climbing variety with red flowers. "Spitfire" is perfect for growing on fences, trellises or allowing them to drape over balconies. She says it is a perfect plant to grow because "it covers a multitude of sins in the garden."
I wanted to make a list of all the seeds I am trying this year, but I think I will just add pictures as the begin blooming. But I wanted to show you a couple of posts from last spring on seeds.
This first post is where I buy most of my seeds and some things I grew last year.
Another one about seeds…..
I will do a follow up post next on “Success Stories of 2009”
It will include photos of things I grew from direct sewing last spring.
