WANTED: Ready to give up

I planted (Winter Sow method) a lot of perrenial seeds this year. I have had very poor results. The soil I used to start the seeds contained critters which killed almost everything I planted. Would anyone consider plants for postage. All I have in my yard is pink coneflower. I had planted Foxglove, Gas Plant, Hollyhock,lavendar,Butterfly weed and several herbs just to name a few.

kathy, are you wanting someone to take your plants or someone to give you plants? molly

I would be interested in trading with you. I could send you two kinds of lavender, some strawberries, and some autumn joy sedum in exchange for some of your pink coneflower, and red onions.

Hi You probably have time to start some again with some good potting soil since you live in zone 6.

Kathy have you considered the Mother Nature method of seed sowing--sowing the seeds directly in your beds during the cold months? I do this every year with wonderful results. In fact my entire yard is a garden (no lawn) and I always scatter my seeds. I don't have to do anything to them; Mother Nature takes care of them perfectly for me.

Good luck with your gardening.

If I'm not mistaken I think we did a trade late summer for my Amaranthus X for some of your clematis. I think I have at least one of the seeds you lost on my trade page. Take a look at it and see if you'd like to do another trade.

Most of my plants haven't even come up yet. Don't give up!!!
