I was wondering why I collected seeds from my plants when nature tell
that I should have just let the plants reseed themselves in the fall.
DO we collect seeds? To start plants in different areas? Do seed
die-off rate that make spring planting more successful? What wil
seeds that lie outside over the winter? Will they get a better start
earlier start? Will they be consumed by little hungry mice and neve
Just curious. I neither start plants indoors nor dig careful littl
to put them in in the spring. (I scatter seed. I am not a fuss
I was wondering why I shouldn't just go out there an scatter the seed
instead of having all these little packets lying around all winte
will probably forget about or not be able to find in the spring.
Oh, what kind of seeds? 4 o'clocks. Yucca. Morning glory. an
I've already forgotten
Where? Central Indiana were we get at least two or three -20 days per
I gather seeds if I want a certain plant in a different area. This
year I scattered hollyhocks in a new area, we'll see what happens. My
larkspur insist on seeding themselves at the front of the border, so I
shake the heads towards the rear so more start back there, I always
end up moving babies, however, in the spring. I've got Salvia
coccinea coming up as a weed now each year, it's wonderful. I'm not a
fussy gardener either, I let the foxgloves come up where they want,
basically, I've got snapdragons that self seed, sweet william,
poppies, forget-me-nots, all the standards that self sow. I don't get
any returnees on the morning glories, but I do get four o'clocks
occasionally. This past summer I had a whole patch of sunflowers come
up in the backyard where my lawn hasn't been replaced yet, I let them
be. The birds loved them. Volunteers are fun!
