My Plan for Breaking the Seed Hoarding Disease
So, I decided to plant old seeds this year - I have a lot that are too old to trade, and too old to be hopeful about. This is a good year for this - I am straight out with logistics for my daughter's wedding this summer, and won't have time in the garden to speak of. I figured by wintersowing old seeds, when they didn't germinate, I would (a) have less planting-out work and (b) be able to pitch any that were left.
2 types of annual poppies, 1 petunia from Limoncello plants, gathered from my 2006 garden, wintersowed on January 14, are full of sprouts.
So much for that idea.
