    They look exciting to me Lori. I love the seed sowing season and get a real kick when they germinate - promises of good things to come.

      Already got a box full of old veg and annual seeds but after the summer house move felt it only proper to have some new annuals. No power in the greenhouse yet (and probably not for this year) so not trying for anything special, excited to start though!

          I am a big fat liar! Budget smudget. I ordered more seeds from a new supplier. Ozark Sundrop (primula?) , Canterbury Bells, Wave petunias silver (8 seeds for $6.00!), snapdragon medium height and another packet of Lunaria - yes, I'm going to keep trying until I get those Dollar plants going!

              Ozark sundrop, is that a type of evening primrose, Onothera.
              Probably spelt that wrong.

                  Darn right it's expensive. I believe these don't need dead heading but that might not be good. No seeds right?

                    Never noticed Canadian dollar were only worth about 60p thought they'd be similar to the US dollar . I bought my Petunia wave for £2.65 for 10 seeds ( or 20 seeds purple wave £3.70 off ebay ) @CanadianLori been had over at least a quid more with two less seeds outrageous prices:paladin: someone needs a thick ear
