Flower Seedlings in the Hoophouse – Ready for Winter – Cut Flower Farm
Bells of Ireland seedlings are in the garden beds and ready to be overwintered.
I was so happy with the bells of ireland germination rates this year. Cold treatment, in addition to soaking the seed for 5 days, really made the difference.
It’s going to be so cool if all these bells of ireland plants growing into beautiful flowers. I’ve never been successful with bells of ireland before, so I’m really hoping that something good happens.
This flower bed technically isn’t in the hoophouse. It’s going to be a low tunnel. Hopefully, it will hold up and do its job through the winter.
Wow! Look at all those seedlings!
I’ve only got a small section of ranunculus corms in the hoophouse this year.
A lot of the hoophouse is held together with duct tape. Ideally, there are other ways to make a hoophouse, but I’m on a REALLY, REALLY tight budget.
Woohoo! Look at those Icelandic poppies. This is another plant that I’ve never had success with – I’m so excited.
Here’s a close up of the sweet pea seeds just starting to germinate. I decided to direct sow these.
A really cool picture of the godetia. I think they’re so pretty.

Growing SO MANY snapdragon seedlings!
Another look at the sweet pea planting – no green leaves yet!

The strawflower seedlings transplanted well.
Bachelor’s buttons seedlings
Technically, these bachelor’s buttons don’t need the tunnel – but I planted them anyway.
I’m really excited about the feverfew, too!

Calendula seedlings are getting big
Anemone corms beginning to grow.
English daisy seedlings. I’ve never grown these before.
Luckily, I was finally able to finish planting the hardy annual cut flower seedlings into the hoophouse. Though most of these flowers are annuals, I did include some biennial flowers under cover, as well. Here’s hoping for a beautiful spring and summer.
