Seeds!

I ordered the 25 for $25 seed packets from www.cherrygal.com.  I'm so excited! Some I'll be able to plant now, some not until the fall/winter.

She didn't have a few things I was looking for - chamomile, tea (camellia sinensis), anise hyssop or yarrow.  My loss for not ordering them last spring. Here's what I ordered:

Green Stripe Cushaw Squash (no pancake squash left)
Tomatillo
Globe Amaranth
Black Eyed Susan
Green Mullein
Holy Basil
Lime Basil
Lemon Basil
Amethyst Basil
Calendula
Cilantro
English Plantain
Evening Primrose
Heartsease
Horehound
Lemon Balm
Meadowsweet
Lovage
Marjoram
Rhodiola Rosea
Mexican Mint
Sage
Blueweed
Coneflower Pinnata (Mexican hats)
Lamb's Ears
Tri Color Hot Pepper Ornamental

The last one was an alternate in case they were sold out of something.

I realize I could find some of the wildflowers locally and snag seeds, but I'm okay with buying them.  I feel like I'm living dangerously with some of these seed selections.  If I can get them to grow it might be hard to contain them.  I am so hoping that happens!  Tee hee!

  1. This is the first place I have ever lived and not had Lambs ears in my garden- cant wait to hear how yours does!

  2. When I placed my order I had given 3 alternate selections (per the instructions) in case any of the first 25 were no longer available. Anise hyssop and Yarrow showed as unavailable, but I ended up getting those seeds. On an entirely random basis the Kershaw squash, tomatillo and lambs ears seeds were excluded. I'll order those three things (and I'm sure a few others as well) over the next few weeks. I got a LOT of seeds, so it's all good!
