Petunia's double bloom

Sunday, January 17, 2010

Seeds are moving along well. I transplanted some of the petunia's along with the Coreopsis. I am starting to see germination of another Petunia variety starting. I think later in the week I will pot up the geraniums and thin out and pot up the Pansies. Still looking for a smaller type flower to go along my sidewalk. I found a Dahlia variety that grows to 8-10". I need to start ordering my veggies. Will try to post some pics.

Well the Impatiens haves sprouted along with Snapdragons and Rudbeckia. I will need to start doing some transplanting this weekend. My Ivy Geraniums have began popping up so that was nice to see. Still have many seeds to sow. I just need to have patience. I don't need marigolds blooming in March. I think I have enough seeds but I know if go to the store and see a seed rack I will probably put some in the cart and take home. I have a weakness.

happy planting everyone!!!!

Well .... more seeds have been planted and must report I do have Petunia's up and growing. Pansies are starting to show along with coreopsis(annual). I just started Geraniums yesterday along with Rudbeckia. Cascading Vinca and Impatien's starting to show. My Germination room is perfect for starting my seeds. A fairly constanst temperature of 72 makes for fast germination.

I know I didn't post much after spring arrived but has anyone visited my Blog in 2010.

well it's 01/01/10 and I am starting seeds this morning. I sowed Petunia's, Pansies and
Coreopsis (1st time). Last year I had numerous seeds already started waited this year. I am disappointed that I ordered Geranium seeds from a national seed company but will not have them till mid or late January. This company needs to get their web site in order so when you order merchandise it will tell you if the SKU's are available. Anyway I do have more seeds coming in the next few days so I will be busy for the spring planting.

Happy New Year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
