These are the kind of flowers a gardener loves to get:
Valentine’s Day Special at Renee’s Garden 20% off through Feb. 14 on selected “lover-ly” flowers that are sure to win the heart of that Special Someone.
I, of course, went a little nuts ordering Shirley Poppies, “Falling in Love” (Papaver rhocas) because I think you can never have too many poppies. There are other selections in this sale, including a fragrant heirloom sweet pea.
Most new or inexperienced gardeners wait too long before they plant poppies. In my zone 6 garden, I will sow poppies in Feb or March. I direct sow these teeny, tiny seed in the garden two months before tomatoes.
Oh, attention sweethearts everywhere: though it is a loving gesture, the purchase of flower seeds does not let one off the hook for chocolate.
See you in Renee’s Community Garden.
