Do You Need Seeds for Next Year?
A friend on Facebook mentioned she had white Hollyhocks this year in her garden. I wrote her that I had seeds for Black Satin hollyhocks; would she like to exchange some seeds. She agreed. Yesterday she arrived with some envelopes of seeds for me.
I have been working on sorting and putting my seeds away in small envelopes and in empty supplement jars, but I’m not finished yet. Anyway, I have 2 bins full of the seeds in jars, and two bread bins, with seeds in envelopes. There are still more to sort and label (especially this year’s marigolds!) But it occurs to me that if you are looking for seeds for next year, you may want to check with me. I may be able – and would be glad to help you out.
After Irene left yesterday I took a closer look at the ones she gave me, and I see that there are lots of seeds for she called PomPom like red poppies. When I looked at the seeds, I realize that these are like the ones Dad grew all over the garden as volunteer flowers. I always thought they looked like giant carnations, but they were definitely poppies! However, I’ll gladly sow the red ones and see what brightness they add to my garden next summer!
I also have lots and lots of green onion seeds! Not just flowers.
