I decided to clean out my flower seed box of all the seed envelopes I kept of tried seeds and thought how foolish to continue to keep them so in the trash they have gone. I think of how many failures. Mine are: Morello cherry lupin, Marine heliotrope, "Thai silk fire" California poppies, Mourning Bride scabiosa, Salvia superba "Rose Queen", Aselepias tuberosa "Butterfly weed", Campanula persicifolia "Peach-leaf bellflower", campanula glomerate" clustered bellflower" and I'm sure there were others. Some germinated but when planted out croaked in a few days..maybe I set them out too soon, maybe the soil wasn't good in that location, some I didn't give enough time to grow before I got disappointed because they weren't growing like the picture showed..Wintersowing has taught me many things..have patience for one thing..not all perennials flower the same year they are planted. Some I just didn't like after I planted them. Some I'd like to try again.
Have you ever thought about all the seeds that you planted that didn't make it? Have you tried to grow that flower again? Some have survived but the jury is still out on them..
I still have seeds that I bought but never got around to planting so I will have some Fall planting to do.
