Sowing pansies, lisianthus and geraniums in the greenhouse

– Posted in: Seeds and Seed Starting

Kathy, Thank you for the advice about Fraser’s. And the hepaticas are unbelievable! Have spent the last few days trying to cover crocus poking through the ground all around the greenhouse. Too soon, too soon! And the temps are supposed to plunge in the next few days. As I plant and sow in the signs of the moon, have been busy seeding in pansies and lisianthus and some geraniums. I grow for friends and family, who have been nudging me, via e-mail, wanting to know what will be ready, when! Looking out into the back yard, snow is beginning to pile up. Last night all the dogs in the neighborhood were singing in harmony with the coyotes down in the valley! I’ll be off to the bank tomorrow to try to float a loan to cover all the orders placed with all my fave companies. Is it only me, or do others go temporarily insane when the catalogs come out?

What differentiates a bulb from a perennial plant is that the nourishment for the flower is stored within the bulb itself.…There is something miraculous about the way that a little grenade of dried up tissue can explode into a complete flower.
