It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away.

Not really. I will only take a few of each. The rest will go to my mom. In all honesty I have to admit more will remain unopened than will get planted. Seems I enjoy buying seeds more than actually planting them Rolling on the floor laughing

I put together a Pinterest list of the annual and perennial seeds I ordered this year. Its so much more fun to look at the pics than a list of names. Its making it much easier to plan where things are going too.

I'd held off for a long time, but after reading that I could turn off all Email notifications, I finally took the leap. Whistling Now I can go back to Geof's list and see it all. Looks nice so far.
I'm trying the Zinnia 'Zinderella Lilac this year, too.

My *from faraway* seed orders are starting to come in...

Lots of different gentianas and penstemons, a couple of uncommon campanulas and calceolarias, and the purportedly very difficult...

...Bellendena montana Blinking http://files.srgc.net/journals/114to125/SRGC123.pdf (Pages 50-53)


I also, finally, ordered some GA to help with these, and some of the more difficult seeds that I already have.

Looking forward to starting some soon! Big Grin

Chelle, I always nick the seed coat and soak for a day in warm water to soften the coats and then do a GA soak .. seems to help since some stubborn seeds tend to go bananas with GA and if the seed coat isn't softened you'll lose a lot of the cotyledons trying to extricate them.

That looks like a neat plant.
I hope the seeds germinate for you.
And if you or anyone else have success using GA 3 , then please report it so Rick can add that to his data base. There is not much documentation of what concentrations to use or on which seeds it works.
And add your results to the ATP database too.
