Outdoors our tulips, columbines and sweet woodruff are showing growth. Indoors I started more seeds on February 8th and some have sprouted. Here is the scoop on my second seed planting;
1. Bidens humilis Golden Eye
2. Petunia Blue Daddy
3. Lobelia Rainbow Mix Cascading
4. Petunia Fire Chief
5. Malope The Vulcan
6. Petunia Dolce Limoncello
7. Amaranth Love Lies Bleeding
8. Petunia Lady Purple
9. Malope Glacier Mixed
10. Nicotiana Breakthrough Mix
11. Old Fashioned Vining Petunia
12. Pink Baby's Breath
13. Petunia Titan Mix
14. Lobelia White Compact
I've planted nine of each of the above varieties. I hope they all sprout. So far both lobelias are up along with the old fashioned vining, dolce limoncello and fire chief petunias. The Bidens are showing as is the Baby's Breath. Still waiting on the rest.
You can see just how tiny they begin..
I'm pleased with my four orange and one silver geraniums. They're growing well.
Still no sign from the impatiens or fuchsia. So far only one of the mix geraniums has sprouted. I should mention that these seeds are all at least two years old, some even older, so any germination is a pleasing event.
The next planting will be around February 27th and will include salvias, more amaranthus, gazania, snapdragons, Ace of Spades Scabiosa, and dahlia seeds.
It's very pleasant to lose myself within thoughts of growing flowers for our garden. Last week I applied with or checked back on 20 different businesses in my pursuit of a job. Haven't heard anything yet. I'll continue to dream of spring, it's better that way. Hope everyone's weekend is great.
