I need to order my seeds. But I can't decide what I want. I keep changing my mind, second guessing myself, and adding things to my list that I can't possibly have room for. I want to grow some perennials, but my last year's seed growing experience with perennials wasn't great. I didn't grow that many, so maybe the ones I choose this time will grow better? Also, I have lots of seeds leftover from last year. Do they last for more than one year?
So far this is what I have selected. I order from Veseys.com
Blue Mirror Chinese Delphinium - I love blue flowers and it is so hard to find a true blue flower.
Munstead Lavender - I am not sure if I need/have room for this, but I love lavender!
Black Beauty Pansies - I grew these last year, and really liked them - I would like some more, and I am really hoping the ones from last year will come back.
Mixed Lupins - I think these are fairly easy to grow and really cheap. I bought a lupin plant last year, and think a few more mixed in the corner with it would be nice. And, since the seeds are so cheap, it is probably worthwhile to grow them from seeds.
Giant Tetra Snapdragon - I want to use these to fill in the extra spaces and maybe in my black pots out front
Razzmatazz Sunflower Mix - These were probably one of my favourite things in my garden last year - until a wicked rain/wind storm knocked them all over when I was on holidays (and filled my basement up with water...I wasn't pleased). They were fabulous colours - this year I want twice as many!
Plus, I have my vegetable seeds - beans, several lettuce varieties, carrots, beets and onions...
I can't decide because I don't actually need a whole package of the perennials, and I am worried it will be a waste of money if they don't grow well. Does anyone have a lot of experience growing perennials from seed? Is it worth it? Or should I just buy the perennials from a garden centre? Plus I still have to buy my spring bulbs - lilies and glads. Gardening is going to make me go broke!
