Well you never know what can happen to change your mind. I met some wonder gardners through Garden Web that live in my area, and they have talked me into trying Winter Sowing. So I am going to give it a chance this year. I just love this Web Site. Ther is always something happening on one of the forums. I usually start my plants in my house every year, but can become some what messy. I know that my husband will appreciate me doing Winter Sowing if not for just that reason.
I start new plants every year devide my old ones and give starts to all of my friends and family.
I could spend all day at Lowes or Home Depot when the flowers first arrive in the spring. Of course I have to stop at all of the little corner Flower and fruit stands on the way to Lowes of Home Depot.
In the Winter time I am constantly designing in my mind and on paper where I want to plant or move something. My husband doesn’t think I have room for anything else but I surprise him every year.
I have a four year old grand daughter that keeps the seeds every time she eats a piece of fruit. She brings them to me and says Nanna can we plant these now? She helps me in the yard with dead heading plants and cutting things down. You know how it goes when you are trying to teach them they end up surprising you and saying...."Look Nanna I cut this one too. Of course it didn’t need to be cut off at the ground! Well that’s where the new area comes from to plant for next year. My husband just doesn’t know it. I would love to hear some of your stories too. Let me hear from you.
