It was about this time I started seeing various seed posts from Blunders with shoots, blossoms 'n roots, Family and Flowers and You Grow Girl, and more recently over at Greenwalks and Petunia's Garden. There's going to be serious planting going on over at their plots. Me? Well, everyone has to start somewhere.
2008 planting season. Don't they fit neatly in this little photo album? It's not that I don't want more, I just don't get around to buying them. In fact, I haven't really been to my trusty nursery haunts in awhile. I know I'm usually a frequent visitor to Magnolia Garden Center, because LAST year one employee saw me and said, "It wouldn't be Spring without you here." I was flattered.
But you know how life takes over; leaves don't get raked; shrubs don't get pruned. The bulbs! I did get those bulbs planted.
Seattle Post-Intelligencer and Marty Wingate was writing about all the great seed companies. Yup, I knew I could no longer ignore it. So I'm going to try a little winter-sowing like A Gardener in Progress has mentioned and perhaps do some local shopping. And maybe I'll mosey over to Cold Climate Gardening where there's a contest to win some more booty (seed packets that is).
