Groco Seeds Order

This is what I ordered from Grocoseeds The prices are very reasonable and you get so much for your buck.

  • Chicory, blue beauty (pretty flowers and you can use the roots as a coffee substitute)

  • Chinese houses

  • Oregano

  • Shoo fly, nicandra

  • Poppy, oriental scarlet

  • Sunflower, maximilian

  • Sunflower, regular

  • Nicotiana

  • Chives

  • Maltese cross, lychnis chalcedonica

This week, I transplanted my coleus seedlings into individual containers. I got these little plastic containers from Wal-mart. I believe they are used for making "jello-shots" or rinsing with listerine. They came in a package of 50 for $1.50. That's a pretty good deal to me! I put holes in them with a heated nail. It only took a couple of minutes to make drainage holes. I can't wait to get my seeds in the mail. I hope they come this weekend. It would be a wonderful Christmas present. We'll see...

Next week, I'll start some broccoli and parsley seeds. I can't believe I'm already starting seeds. I would probably go stir-crazy if I didn't do something in the garden! I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas!!!
