Mittsy has offered up one of her beautiful Garden favorites!! This is a registered Lily but missing the tag Mittsy says "they came from Jackson and Perkins and that it was probably after 1966"
Newbies and "oldtimers" that means everyone is welcome as we can not have a newbie thread or box without everyone's help!!
I think I have it!! Bring your friends and neighbors !! I will post the link to the contest on the newbie thread too in just a moment!! I am using the latin name of a flower as I always did and I am even going to give you a hint this time!!
The winner must provide.
1. the Latin Name spelled correctly
2. the common name
3. Where the hint came from ( Please provide a link to the reference)
Research, research, research!! Its just like digging in the garden the more you do the more you need to do!! Please post your answers here on this thread. Mark your spot Ready, set, go!! The first one to provide all three wins!!
Here is the scramble and the hint!!
The box has left my hands and is now enroute to the winner.
I am gathering Hollyhock seeds, (single pale pink and double white) can someone jump in here and let me know how long they need to be in the freezer to kill off any little hitch hikers?
Yes it says the seeds are edible of this one!! I use every scridge of my nettles for something!! Scridge is that a word...?I use mallow too in my tea just wasnt familiar with this one I will be trying it through:) Thank you
You named that so fast maybe you will know these too!! I have one more!!
#3 Tickseed ?
#4Acalypha rhomboidea or A. virginica
Like this? I dont think Basil though it seem to be a native plant the one with the purple flower is native too.
Prize hmm let me think!! Seeds of any of the plants identified? Or some of whatever I make with them if they turn out to be herbal !! And usable!!
Well, here is the contest prize from mittsy!! It turned out to be a box full of things. So much ... the daylilies, several irises, Rose of Sharon, toad lily, sedum, some herbs, and four baggies full of seeds of various kinds. (The candle and coconut oil are mine.) :)
mittsy, you blew me away!! Thank you so much for your generosity. :)
Postal depends on traffic and where you are . Someplaces next day deliveries aren't possible and take three days .
First class usually takes the three to five days although I have seen and had it take up to 8 or nine , although it is rare for the longer times .
just saying ..
It was delivered yesterday as far as I know. I never heard anyone ring the bell and just found it on my own when I was working out front. The weather here is HOT right now so any time in the mail jeep and so forth could have dried things a bit.
Everything will revive and should be fine. No worries. :)
