Thanks to an eclectic garden, I learned about Value Seeds. This reminds me of Edward Hamilton Books, my favorite place to shop for gardening books. Someone else’s castoffs, but still good quality, one price for shipping no matter how much you buy, get-it-before-it’s-gone selection, and very low prices. I haven’t ordered from them myself, but the reviews on Garden Watchdog seem favorable. As the eclectic gardener aptly put it, “a cross between Thompson and Morgan Seeds and the Dollar Store.” Frugal gardener’s heaven!
Now, the digging and dividing of perennials, the general autumn cleanup and the planting of spring bulbs are all an act of faith. One carries on before the altar of delayed gratification, until the ground freezes and you can’t do any more other than refill the bird feeder and gaze through the window, waiting for the snow. . . . Meanwhile, it helps to think of yourself as a pear tree or a tulip. You will blossom spectacularly in the spring, but only after the required period of chilling.
