February isn’t even over yet and I’m already dreaming about what flowers and seeds I’m going to plant this Spring. I spent a good part of yesterday afternoon combing through my Johnny Seeds catalogue seeing what flowers I’d want to try to start from seed his year. Last year I tried to grow a small cut garden and though I grew some pretty Zinnias, I didn’t work very hard at it and it didn’t do as well as it could have. This year I want to do better. I’ve never done much from seed, so this year I’m going to pay close attention to when and how to plant the seed and not just put them in the ground and hope they sprout.
A few that I’m loooking forward to trying are:
- Queen Lime w/ Blush Zinnias
- Double Click Snow Puff Cosmos
- Ellegance Purple Lavender
- Katz Formula Stalk Mix (these beautiful little things are edible too!)
- Chief Mix Celosia
Those are just a few! I’ll also plant the actual plants when the time comes, but I’m excited to try some new varieties. Last summer I did this post on some of my flowers around the homestead. I look forward to doing more this year and keeping my fingers crossed that my cherry tree will bloom this year.
What are you planting this year? Have you ever started from seeds? Tell me your experiences and what you’re looking forward to this Spring!
