Scented Geraniums - Kim

Many of you know...but for those that don't. I have open co-ops and launching a few more before this week is out. Group purchasing is a great way to "feed" that exciting need for new and different plants! Who doesn't want new and exciting plants? Plants which are unusual and NOT available in the Big Box Stores... That’s what Co-ops…by Kim is all about. Our goal is to offer you the most exciting new plant varieties available in the market today. For more information visit my co-op page. 

Today I have opened a co-op for scented geraniums (22 cultivars).

Time to Winter Sow

Well actually winter sowing should have happened in November. Winter has been extremely mild here in PA. The day time temps are warm for winter, around 60 degrees. Nonetheless a good time to winter sow because the ground is workable. Although I won't be using the ground to winter sow. I have prepared 6 inch pots with labels to sow specific seeds to get those specific results! Some seeds require cold treatment and nature always does best. Therefore tomorrow I will fill some of these pots up with soil and sow my most wanted plants. I'll follow up in a few days with the seeds I sowed and a few pics.

The Garden Blues

I've been real lazy this growing season. Not sure what has really gotten in to me..but I sigh. I have recently been looking online. For plants that I want to purchase from different plant nurseries. Which the Shipping prices are astronomical! The really sad part is I have the seeds to just about everything I wanted to buy. So I decided to get off my hump and germinate some seeds. I've been known to be the "Germinating Queen". So why not live up to my name? So today I pulled out the seeds of each plants I was trying to buy. I will start them in the windowsill at this time. I'm sure they will germinate in about 7-14 days and will post pictures. I will use a small plastic cup with vermiculite nearly drenched. Which seems to work best for the type of seeds I'll be starting. Then enclose each cup in a plastic ziplock bag.

In the picture below I have a few sprouts of Himalayan Blue Poppy which emerged yesterday..I'm sure they'll be more I can see the seed splitting.
