Winter Sowing Bachelor’s Buttons Flowers in Zone 6b/7

Winter sowing bachelor's buttons seeds works like a charm.

In the Garden: ‘Classic Romantic Mix’ Bachelor Buttons

Hi Lovelies, I've been doing a terrible job keeping up with posts and comment replies, and in the midst of planting season, I'm not sure if I've been getting as much sleep as I should be getting. Anyhow, in my quest to try to post each of the varieties that I'm growing this year, I…

A Post about the Cold and Other Stuff?

Hi Lovelies, It looks like winter is officially here. It's been colder and I've been "babying" the ranunculus in the polytunnel on the extra cold nights. I'll talk more about that in a second.
