Flowers! 🌺 🌷 🌸 🌹

What types of flowers? Some perennials require a period of cold to germinate,

They are mostly annual snapdragons and some foliage. I will just start more and see if they do anything.

Good luck! I’m with Madge too that germination can be iffy, especially on any seeds I self-harvest.

My yard has lady slippers! They are not yet in full bloom but I’m so excited!


Why are some of my leaves like this? They are obviously right next to nice healthy ones on the same plant so I’m not sure why some would be crispy. I’m hoping the healthy ones don’t turn crispy! There are a few more in the middle of other trays, so I don’t really think it’s that these specific seedlings didn’t get enough of or got too much of something by being on the edge. But I just don’t know much.

That looks like the first leaves just dying off. Those first leaves are just there to get the plant going and die off. Once the mature leaves start growing they die off. It should be ok!


Thanks! I don’t remember that happening last year.

My first lilacs! I just planted the bushes last fall.


How tall do you wait for seedlings to be before planting?

I have some that are definitely ready like 4-5” (mostly Cosmos) others that are questionable like 2-3” and some like my Snapdragons that just aren’t doing much at all. These are all 6 weeks old. I’m planning to plant next weekend, because it’s going to be in the 90s next week and that doesn’t seem like a good idea for tiny seedlings?
