thanks :)

Leesburg, FL(Zone 9b)

Robin... I've got an envelope stuffed with seeds. If I cant get to the PO today, it will go out tomorrow.
Most everything is in it's individual baggie, but some are 'bulk' but i made seed tags for them, just put them all in the larger bag.

Palm Coast, FL(Zone 9a)

ok, wanna share some news with everyone...

ive been an absentee member for awhile for several reasons, but one reason in particular was actually a happy one.

A friend of mine owns a shop.. and for the past few years, her shop has been located in a local strip mall. The opportunity presented itself to move the shop from its existing cookie cutter strip mall location, to a 150 + year old, (actually, oldest house int he area) two story Victorian mansion. along with this new house came a beautiful wrap around porch and a sizable back garden 9overgrown with weeds, dead wood and alot of unpruned and unkept shrub, trees and plants), the house being empty for several years and no one taking care of the grounds.

naturally, I was given the task of restoring the garden to its former 19th century Victorian glory. there are quite a few plants and shrubs that will be cleaned up and kept, and alot of unruly non natives that will be erradicated (can you say Mexican petunia???). I have managed to harvest a few various seeds from my own plants to sprout... such as morning glory for the arbors and Night blooming jasmine... however, ther is a long wish list of basic herbs and plants that are still needed.

the plan is.. to have a working kitchen herb garden, a butterfly and humming bird garden as well as a shade garden. the front wrap around porch is almost completely shaded and faces west, and tho it would normally get alot of afternoon sun, the 150 yr old spanish moss draped oak is sort of a natural umbrella. My plan is for some impatiens there, but would also need a few taller shade loving plants as backdrop against the porch railing.
If any of you gals have ideas for the front western shaded area.. let me know. also... seeds.. glorious seed would be welcomed as well. if, say, you happen to have any spare from your harvest lying around needing a purpose in life. or the best place to purchase them.

a list of some simple seeds needed are;

HERBS

chamomile
sage
basil
thyme
rosemary
catnip
dill
oregano
parsley
mint
lemon grass
lavender


Flowers:

impatiens
cone flowers
rose
butterfly/milkweed
salvia
marigold
honeysuckles
morning glories
sunflowers
daisies
vinca
cosmos
anything that will attract birds and butterflies is a bonus

really.. anything is welcome, provided its not drastically outside its zone. just let me know in a dmail... i am eager to get some things started so by spring they will be ready to transplant! I am the only person taking on this project as i have yet to gather any volunteers.. so any tips, tricks, shortcuts or advice any of you may have will be very very very much appreciated!

YOURS,
cue.

Morning everyone

Thanks for the new thread Robin. Great picture

58 this am. Cloudy and cool

Hope everyone has a great day.

Leesburg, FL(Zone 9b)

cue -- too bad I've closed up that envie to Robin... some of what you are looking for, i've stuffed all my extras into it - heading for the newbies. The grounds sound fantastic. l love those big porches, and that spanish moss sounds heavenly.

Palm Coast, FL(Zone 9a)

its going to be one heck of a project.. for sure. the entire grounds needs an overhaul... lots of digging, pulling, pruning and killing to be done, then mapping , more digging and planting... wow.. i think i'll need more help...lol

Monticello, KY(Zone 6b)

Cue give me some time to go through my seeds I might have some of what you want. I do have some lavendar I can get cuttings from if you tell me how many you need

Washington, IN(Zone 6a)

cue, I have some sunflower,marigold and purple cone flower and some zinna I can send you. Will put them in the mail tomorrow.

Palm Coast, FL(Zone 9a)

MINDY!!!!!!! you are such a sweetheart! whatever can be spared, whether or not its on the list is greatly appreciated... im trying to locate as many containers for seed starting as i can...lol... gonna be a lot of flowers.

Palm Coast, FL(Zone 9a)

Thanknk you Flower and bless you... every little bit helps! everytime i walk into that yard, i become overwhelmed with how much work there is to be done... its just... yeah.

ive got to clear off a space on my patio to start these seeds... I feel so blessed to have such generous friends as you... really.. you guys are absolutely amazing!

Monticello, KY(Zone 6b)

Hey Terese why not send Arejay a demail giving her permission to give Cue some of your seeds? She will if you tell her it's Ok with you

Phoenix, AZ(Zone 9a)

Cue that sounds like a great opportunity for you to do some fabulous things at that place! Good for you! Let me check my seeds when I got home tonight. I have lots of different herb seeds. Welcome back to the fun - I sure missed ya!

Robin - I soooooooo miss the fall in Maine, but then I remember winter comes fast and I don't miss it so much - lol. It sure is the prettiest time of year though...

Litchfield, ME(Zone 5a)

Ok everybody I have an idea!! How about we take a vote!!! I am printing the list of seed that Cue is looking for. We can make it a Christmas Project. Cue can post pictures before during and after. We from the newbee seeds will donate what we have that she is looking for. She will at seed saving time in the new glorious garden send the newbies seeds of whatever she has grown to put back into the newbie pot ??? Ok with everyone....

Washington, IN(Zone 6a)

thats fine with me. I am send out some of what she wants tomorrow.

Monticello, KY(Zone 6b)

Very good idea Robin. Wonder if we can make her pay interest by sending in some of the seeds she said she saved already from there? OK I'll be good now gotta get back to work on an afghan I'm putting together that's killing my poor eyes. Dark color are defintiely out for this crocheter from now on SIGH but it will be worth it when I get it done.

Litchfield, ME(Zone 5a)

Well I didnt write that Mindy but that was what I was thinkin....I am pretty sure we can double our money(seeds ) in this deal....

Phoenix, AZ(Zone 9a)

Sounds good to me Robin!

Fair Play, SC(Zone 7b)

Well, I got chamomile if that helps I can donate.

Palm Coast, FL(Zone 9a)
