Bachelor's Button Seeds

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

Winter sowing bachelor's buttons seeds works like a charm. Then again, bachelor's buttons seeds are so easy, I'm starting to think there are practically a million different ways that you can start these seeds. You can winter sow them, start them indoors or direct sow them - they all work. However, depending upon where you…

March Week One Update

Hi Lovelies, Brace yourselves! This post has a lot of pictures. Just a quick peek at ¬†nearly everything¬†that's going on right now! Let's all just hope that this warmer weather will keep on coming our way! Not pictured is the progress on the dahlia tubers that I've started for cuttings. The reason? Well, it looks…

Planting Lots of Tulips, because why not?

Hi Lovelies, Day 20 has come a little bit early to the blog, for the main reason that I probably won't have internet access later tonight when I usually do my 2am writing - I know, I know. Anyway, one of the major tasks that I was able to accomplish today was planting out the…

Beginner’s Guide to a Gorgeous Spring Garden

Hi Lovelies, Well, we made it! Day 15 of Blog-tober! If I had known that 31 days of straight blog posts would be this difficult, I'm not sure I would have taken on the task - but, I'm enjoying it nonetheless. With tons of orders of spring seeds and bulbs landing on my front porch…

Hardy Annual Update – Blog-tober Day 6

Hi Lovelies, After finishing last night's post about anemones, I've got to slow my roll a little bit.

Around the September 20; I pulled up…

How to Grow Anemones in Zone 6 (and probably other places, too!)

  Hi Lovelies, Well, well. It's hard to believe this is already my fifth post of October! In many ways, October is the month that I'm doing the most things. I'm planting bulbs (and ordering, lol), looking for bargains to save money for spring, and trying to enjoy the last of the nice weather before…

Guide to Growing Ranunculus

Hi Lovelies, Buckle yourself in, because this blog post is going to be an exciting one. Well, I think it is. If you live in one of those awesome areas where the temperatures are relatively mild and ranunculus grow and overwinter outside without protection, this post probably won't serve as much help. However, if like…

Seed Saving – Bachelor’s Buttons

Hi Lovelies, Today's post was definitely one of those spur of the moment, random ideas that I get. I started seed saving back when I started growing veggies. In fact, seed saving is important for many reasons - but alas, I'll save that for another day. I was walking through the garden today when I…

Preparing for Hardy Annuals

Hi Lovelies, So, it's raining again. I know I shouldn't be complaining because a lot of folks are suffering from heat and a major drought, but I'm itching to get back into the garden so badly. The stargazer oriental lilies started to bloom this week. Unfortunately, they did so during the rain. That means there…
