Seed catalogs

I am so excited to start looking at seed catalogs finally!  Ah, the photos...oh, the varieties....what wonderful colors!  There is quite a stack to dive into, including Johnny's, Pinetree Garden Seeds, Gloeckner's, Stokes, Park, R. H. Shumway, Harris, and HPS out of Randolph, Wisconsin...I hope there will be some lovely TALL new introductions this year because I want nice long stems for cutting.

My first step was to make a list of seeds I have on hand.  I keep them in ziplock bags in the freezer between plantings.  Sometimes there are 1,000 seeds in a package, and those seeds will get me through 3 or more years!  Some seeds do not keep for me, though, for instance  statice, annual phlox, and salpiglosses.

Must sign off so I can get busy!  Happy garden dreams!
