What We've Seeded... So Far!
I distinctly remember Chris and I agreeing last year that we would try to restrain ourselves from seeding so many plants in the next season.
Yeah, right! :D
The following is a list of what we've seeded so far:
Nasturtium - 2 kinds, Jewel mix and Alaska mix
Lavatera - Silvercup*
Aster - Dwarf Mix
Marigold - 2 kinds, Hero Mix* and Queen Sophia
Columbine - Pink Tower*
Sunflower - Summer Sun
Dahlia - Star Gazer*
* These are all plants I've grown before and will probably keep growing.
** These are plants that either Chris and I or my mother purchased already in bloom. We harvested seeds from the Hollyhock and purchased seeds for the Delphinium and Calendula.
This year I'm trying to grow ornamental grasses from seed. The ones I've planted are:
Little Blue Stem
I want to put some of the grasses in our front flower bed where there are some junipers. The others are going to go in the 1/2 barrel planters (we have 5 of them).
Last year we bought some roses but only managed to get one of the climbers planted. I'm hoping and praying that the others have survived. We have a Hunter, a Senior Prom and I'll have to check on the others.. I can't recall offhand their names. Thanks to Chris and mom, I've already got a nice assortment of miniroses. I fell in love with them last year.
That's it... so far! ;)

Sounds like you have a good selection of seeds started Prairie Lily! Every year I say that I'm not going to start so many plants, but every year I think I start MORE!
Oooo, you remind me, I'm way behind with sowing seeds. :-(
Oh dear you're a hopeless case aren't you? Never mind, here at GS we're all tarred with the same brush. We keep telling ourselves "NO, no more seed planting, no more plant buying, but what do we do? Yep buy more seeds and more plants. The signs of a true, blue -blooded plantaholic!!!! Welcome to the club. LOL
Just a couple of weeks ago I said I was going to mow everything down, now I am going to add another flower bed. Go figure.
weve got onions,peas,potatoes and radishes planted so far,,in veggie garden,planted some flower seeds last fall,and have more as soon as frost dangers over///
What do you do to the seeds ? I would love to sow more seeds but somehow we are not all that successful. Joke is we sell seeds but we are very bad at growing them.
