So, with a one day warm snap, we sowed a few more containers yesterday. Thanks to the very generous, Amy, from Get Busy Gardening, we have many more seeds to sow. We won her first round of Winter Sowing contests and received a huge packet of Sunflower Cutting Mix seeds as well as countless perennial seeds collected from Amy’s own beautiful gardens! Get over there to see what all the excitement is about!
#24 Lamb’s Ear-perennial-definitely going in the Children’s Garden area. Can’t wait to get my hands on the fluffy soft leaves! And I love that I read somewhere that it’s a medicinal plant that is good to put on kids’ boo-boos! A soft, healing band-aid if you will. Good info link
#25 Obedient Plant-Purple-interesting perennial plant, named because it’s said you can twist the flowers around on the stems to where you want them which makes it a fun Children’s garden plant too. I love garden blog hopping and the search for an image to link for this plant brought me to Colors of The Garden blog Amazing, beautiful gardens!
#26 Hardy Hibiscus-Pink
#27 Hardy Hibiscus-White
#28 Columbine Mix
Only six containers completed, but it started to rain and it quickly became time to pick up Miss Pearl. We’ve been doing our winter sowing outside on the deck for ease of clean up (brrrrrrr!), but I think if we want to step up production, we may have to move our operations inside and deal with the mess. Blasted cold, wet weather. You’d think it was Spring or something!
