It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

Thanks for the new thread Ronnie!

Some plants that might be good to direct sow in the fall would be Columbines, Poppies, Larkspur, Foxglove & Bachelors's Buttons.

Dahlianut provides two good links for information on seed sowing. The first ones is for determining when to sow your seeds. The second one gives good information on the light requirements for your seeds.

OK, Can we get a show here from anyone who is interested in trading via mail ? We have folks not in our area, so our trading with them will be via mail. Some people are going to want to winter sow in DEC and not wait for our swaps in Jan or Feb. I will be reserving seeds for Teri's swap but will also have ones to swap via mail.

People frrom other areas are also sending us some packs of seeds as so many of our blooms died this year before producing any, so I will have seeds to go around from others too.

Can everyone say if they want to swap via mail please?

I hope so. I really like this plant and would like to have more of them.

Here's the one I've been waiting for. Of the original 12 seeds, I've now got three plants of this Pagan Purple Delphinium. Now to see what of the 3 will overwinter.

Stormy, that is pretty. Don't you feel good when you can get something to grow from seed! I just started two seasons ago - had a lot of luck with tomato seeds and lamb ears but not much else yet. I got other things started, but then didn't keep up with the watering and hardening off needed for them to survive.

Ever the optimist about how much free time I have, I ordered a lot of flower seeds from the Select Seed sale and have been getting on ebay for Japanese morning glory seeds. I somehow wandered over to the Morning Glory cubit and loved what I saw in the photos that have been posted there - just what I need, another thing to learn about and devote time and energy to. Can't wait to get started!!!

I can send out some passion fruit (dried on the vine) of the hardy Maypop, if anyone wants to give 'em a try - I've been told they really need to be fresh to be viable, so I'd send them out ASAP...

Thanks, Ronnie!

Sheryl, Do you wait until Spring to plant them? Ronnie has opened two more threads in this forum.

I sure wouldn't. I'd get them in and put some heat under them.

You could also try winter sowing them - seeing as they do go through a fairly chilly winter here, I'd say they're a good candidate for it.
