Snowing & Growing

Snow showers were called for, but heavy snow fall is more like it!  For today, when it is snowin’, I am growin’.   I sorted out the seeds saved from past years – anything before 2008 had to go.  Good bye Fig hollyhock!  I now feel less a hoarder, but all the poorer as my big basket of seeds has diminished!It is too soon for most annual seed to be germinated, but the datura can take so long and can be grown successfully inside until it is time to acclimate outdoors, so I soaked the seed overnight and they were planted.I think this double yellow will be a great container plant, and with the snow blanketing the deck, it is something to look forward to seeing there in a few months!

    • I grow datura in a container and away from the pets as everything about the plant including seeds is poisonous to them. The white datura has occasionally dropped seed and has re=seeded the next Spring in the ground. I like it better as a container plant.
