Great pleasures from a seed person
Some of the great pleasures in my garden:
1. Finding out that a new plant, I love, reseeds freely.
2. Finding a plant from a seed I planted years ago which suddenly came up.
3. Trying to determine what a new plant is that I have no clue where it came from and hoping it is not some new weed.
4. Finding out that a new technique increased germination for a seed type.
5. Planting seeds that I thought would be hard to germinate and have them all come up. (I have at least 500 petunia seedlings this year; had 3 last year.)
6. Waitng to see the result of a cross pollination experiment.
7. Ending up with a new plant that everyone comments about.
8. Finding seeds on a plant that seldom, if ever, produces seed. (Found 6 hips at a commerical site where many Knockouts are grown. The Knockout website says Knockouts seldom produce hips.)
9. Have a plant grow from seed that is not suppose to be grown in my climate zone.
Finding a new plant variety grown from seed that resists the bugs and diseases in my garden.
and #1 ... successful germination.
