A very wonderful friend sent me seeds from her French Iris for Christmas. I've never tried growing this delicate little flower, but will try to do so this summer.
It's such a dainty little beauty that I think I'll plant it in pots. That way I will be able to adjust how much sun it is exposed to. Out here in the prairies, things can easily get too much heat.
Speaking of growing plants from seeds, here are some handy articles from the past to help you get started this spring:
- Growing Plants from Seeds - everything you need to know to get started with your spring garden
- Raised gardens and beds - increase crop productivity, reduce weeding, comfort for senior or disabled gardeners
- All about tomatoes - from starting plants from seeds to planting out, insect pests, harvesting & more
Hopefully this will get you started with planning your summer garden. More information and photos will be appearing in the coming weeks.
