I have ordered my seeds for the 2021 gardening season. This year there isn’t one vegetable seed in the bunch. Slowly, the flowers have taken over the vegetable patch.
I’m trying some new seeds again this year, and giving up on others. No more asters, or ageratum.
There will be lots of dahlias again for sure.
And a good variety of zinnias. For the first time I started them early in flats, and those did really well.
Pinching back the cosmos resulted in great branching of the cosmos, and plenty of blooms to cut. I’ve ordered some new colours this year.
Celosias were amazing!
These were also excellent for fillers in the bouquets. Celosia flamingo feather.
A big patch of pink statice grows on and on, and is a great contrast in a vase.
Last year I had very bad luck with the snapdragons germinating, but I will be trying again. I ordered a package of plain white.
I also want to try more lisianthus. They need to be started very early, so I’m hoping the seeds arrive soon. They are really special, but they are fussy and slow. I did get 3 plants to grow in a pot last year.
I am certainly looking forward to lots of beautiful flowers to enjoy, and bouquets to give away this year!
