Yesterday as I took advantage of the beautiful weather we were having to start working on the Fall maintenance before we started getting cold weather. I pulled up my annual vincas, annual geraniums, wild ageratum and since the columbines had taken over most of the flowerbed in front of the living room window, I even ripped up some of them and discarded them. I know there will be a lot more columbines that will reseed so I didn't feel bad ripped them up by their roots. Mrs. Bradshaw geum that I wintersowed back in January is such a healthy speciman but I won't see blooms until 2012..There is another very healthy clump of plant planted next to Mrs. Bradshaw and even though I found a Malva Zebrina plant ID marker by it, I know definately it is not Zebrina. If I could come across my home made wintersowing spreadsheet, I maybe could figure out what the plant is. The raspberry bee balm has lots of small seedlings popping up. Thank you Pennfeather for sharing such beauty in 2010 with me. I plan to start ordering flower seeds to wintersown in 2012.
I'd like to think ahead to the May plant swaps. What do you think are the most popular plants shared at these plant swaps? I've been up since 3:30 am and am having a brain freeze. I only was able to make one plant swap this summer, While ordering seeds for WS, I want to order for planting
