Sowed my annual seeds as well as some saved/purchased perennials today.
I used 2 whole trays for the 5 packs of Zahara zinnias (only 74 seeds total - they better have a 100% germination rate at those prices!!).
Another whole tray for French dwarf marigolds. (You gotta love a plant that the deer don't like!)
20 tall cells for some saved seeds of State Fair (super tall/huge blooms) zinnias for back by the golf course. Also half a tray for Cut-n-come again zins for Mom.
Then I sowed some saved seeds: Ruby Star coneflower (P) and a little annual I got last year which I loved, but don't know the name - looks like a speckled cross between a large snap dragon and small petunia. Really sweet in the planter boxes.
Then I turned on the rope light in the heat tray and covered them with some plastic.
Sure seems a paltry bit of sowing. But as the deer take more and more wind out of my gardening sails, I have reduced my expectations accordingly.
I don't know why I don't just throw in the trowel. Habit I guess.
How about you? Starting those plants yet?
