Plants from Seeds










Growing plants from seeds is a relatively new experience for me. Until this year, I have mainly purchased what I wanted in my garden - at plant sales or at local nurseries - or been generously given by relatives, friends and colleagues.
From top to bottom, the California Poppy and Cat Mint seeds came from Renee's Garden, the Butterfly Weed seeds were purchased at a garden conference last January, from a local grower, and the Cilantro's seeds were collected in my garden last year.

I have had very little success with plants from seeds, except for beans and a few herbs in my outdoor garden. I've tried so many seeds indoors and outdoors, but I have too much shade / too little sun to warm the soil.

You have too much sun, I too much shade. But we both have lovely and fruitful gardens.

That's all that matters, isn't it?

Happy gardening, wherever in the world you are.

I love from growing from seed but then that's how I got into writing. I usually sow too much, but you can always give them to friends.
