Hi - I remember reading your first article about buying end-of-season plants; I've really enjoyed your follow-up. This has inspired me to look for discounted plants, but it also inspired me to think twice before discarding packets of out-of-date seeds. I was ready to toss some nastursium (sp.??) seeds that had expired in 2010, but I had just recently read your first article. I decided to plant them about 5 weeks ago (late July) and was pleasantly surprised that about 25% of them germinated! They're not beautiful yet but not only were they two years out of date, I probably didn't plant them at the right time of year either. I remember both my grandmothers had pots of them that bloomed profusely and they are a happy reminder of my childhood. I'll definitely try the nastursiums again, only this time I'll pay more attention to the planting season! Maybe I'll finally get the potful of blooms that I remember from my childhood. Thanks for a lovely article. And the roses look wonderful!
