Lazlo's Fall 2012 - Full Sun - Mystery Mix
The seeds in this full sun mixture should be sown at least 4 weeks before the first frost in your area -or- by November 1st if you live where hard freezes are rare. The way I sow them is to rake the area to be sown in several directions, wet the area with a sprinkle spray, then scatter-sow the seeds over the area, and then I scatter a light layer of composted material over the area, and then wet that down. Thereafter, I keep the area moist (but not soaked), wetting the area once daily until I see some sprouting. At that point, I water as I usually do in Autumn and Winter.
Before sowing, however, I recommend mixing the seeds with sand or vermiculite in order to make a more even scattering. Empty the entire contents of the seed packet - - in addition to the ground cinnamon I have added to inhibit fungi and damp-off problems there are seeds included in the Mystery Mix that are so small that it is very difficult to separate them out from the cinnamon or other seeds.
Mystery Mix seeds include annuals, biennials and perennials . . . Flowers and Flowering Shrubs . . . You probably will not receive seeds for all the species or cultivars in your packet of Mystery Mix seeds, but you will receive a very large sampling of the list that follows below.
What I Need From You:
A self-addressed envelope - long business size preferred, but bubble envelope is not necessary (I wrap all seeds). On the back of that envelope, please make a note:
"Mystery Mix" so I will know which seeds you want - - sometimes I have multiple offers running concurrently.
Enclose LOOSE postage stamps to total 70˘ worth . . . Many folks just send two (2) "forever" stamps - - That's fine, too. Any overage in stamps I use when shipping boxes of seeds from my garden and scavenging trips to VA occupational therapy programmes and school gardening / horticultural clubs each year.
Please DO NOT send currency in the mail . . . Some folks who have sent money this year had it stolen someplace along the USPS journey. I appreciate the sentiment and will gladly apply any money sent via my PayPal acct. to giving seeds to educational programmes. If you do, Thank You in advance.
