It's that time--about four or five weeks before planting time.
Yesterday I rounded up some seeds for my flower beds. Most of these I've grown before, but this next one is new to me--the old-fashioned, single bloom, Hollyhock. It gets pretty tall. I'm not sure, but they might not need staking.
I have Thyme planted on the left, and Hollyhocks on the right.
The Thyme seeds are very tiny, so I bought something to help me drop the right amount of seeds per pod. You can see the tiny seeds in the plunger. The Thyme is new to me also. I plan on planting them between the rocks in my rock path.
In two weeks I need to start the marigolds, and the Cleome--we've always called them Spiderflowers.
The Morning glories I plan on sowing them where I want them to grow--these are gorgeous when in bloom--especially on the south side of the plants. Spring's a comin'.
