My favorite flowers from SEED!
Oh….HOW I LOVE SEEDS! I absolutely love everything about growing things from seeds. And my garden would not look the same without them.
For pennies a plant you can have a lush, full display year after year. Many of the plants in the bed seen above are from seed. It gave me the rich, full and lush look I wanted, as well as knowing I almost always will have something in bloom in this area.
Here are a few of my favorites. I hope you might be inspired to try them as well. All of the following plants I grew from seed in the last two years.
Annual Cleomes…. I have a few different varieties, and I love them all. This one is a very bright pink.
I have the soft pink and white ones as well.
Annual Candytuft ( Reblooms all Season)
Perennial White Yarrow and Annual Feverfew
So many different Perennial Hollyhocks….
Annual Zinnia and Cosmos…
Annual Heirloom Pink Catchfly
Annual Pink Evening Primrose
Perennial Russell Lupines
Annual Moss Seed Verbena
Perennial Mountain Bluet
Annual Johnny Jump Ups and Violas
Perennial Sweet Williams
Annual Morning Glory Vine
Coneflowers are very easy from seed …. actually most perennials are reliable from seeds. I could go on and on, and I am sure I left out a few favorites like larkspurs and poppy. But this is a good start.
As you can see, I start the majority of my new beds with seeds.
To me it is a beautiful sight to find my little babies popping up. It makes me want to go out in the snow and look for them today, but I know they are under their blanket waiting for it to warm up again.
Many blessing to all…. and much love…..Brooke
