Seeds Ordered!

I have just finished ordering seeds...this year from FEDCO, STOKES, GLOECKNER'S, PINETREE, and HPS....there is a new basil with flowers to use in bouquets.  I am trying a cactus-flowered zinnia for the first time.
Found a few new varieties for the plant sale, including a wonderful lime green agastache called 'Golden Jubilee' I grew a few years ago.  Lastly, Cosmos Is Still My Favorite!  I will have Sensation, Dazzler (deep fushia/maroon), Double Click, and Early Wonder (supposed to flower 2 weeks early, that'd be good).   I'll grow several varieties of rudbeckia and several colors of zinnias ageratum...painted tongue...oh yes, and 10 varieties of celosia.  A yellow/green spiky celosia called Sylphide is new this year...of course it was outrageously expensive but I thought I Had to Have It....for great bouquets, you need great flowers!  

Seeds should all be here before the end of the month, and I will start the first seeds in mid-February.
More on that later.
