Flowers grow and turn to seed every year for free as part of nature, and yet it can cost a lot to buy plants and flowers ourselves. Flowers and gardens can bring so much simple joy into our lives and to share this with others is part of the fun.
Because I know that like me my customers love flowers and gardens, I would like to share some of my garden with you.
Gardening can be an expensive business so it's always a joyful thing to find plants for free. Free flower seeds allow you to fill your garden with flowers for the least money. Propagate your own flowers from free garden seeds, and then once yours are blooming, keep the seeds each year and grow some more.
The flowers for free I currently have available are:
Common names - Peach leaved bellflower, Bellflower, Canterbury bells
Description: Pretty stems of purple or white flowers in summer.
Common names - foxglove
Description: Tall spires of tubular flowers in later spring.
Common names - sweet rocket, dame's rocket, damask-violet, dame's-violet, dames-wort, dame's gilliflower, night-scented gilliflower, queen's gilliflower, rogue's gilliflower, summer lilac, sweet rocket, mother-of-the-evening, and winter gilliflower
Common names - purpletop vervain, clustertop vervain, Argentinian vervain, tall verbena or pretty verbena
When you order you will get a small brown envelope with some seeds inside, and there is a wealth of information online about how to propagate each of these if you need some further information.
January is the perfect time to start planning your garden for the year.
“Anyone who thinks that gardening begins in the spring and ends in the fall is missing the best part of the whole year; for gardening begins in January with the dream” - Josephine Neuse
