I love gardening, particularly wildlife and GYO. I have an addiction when it comes to buying plants. I only wish I could spend more time indulging!

That’s a shame Julie, maybe the conditions haven’t been right over winter. Hopefully they may yet come back! @vec

I wonder if conditions over winter haven’t been ideal? Oh well, hopefully this year’s can start off a fresh new selfseeding crop for years to come!

It’s nice to have those “self-seeders”!! I’m trying to garden smarter and easier in my old age. I’ll have to get more myself I only have that beautiful spider flower and Mexican Petunia but it’s a start. Soon you’ll have to show us an update of your front flowerbed when it’s beautiful again! That came out so nice

I agree Terri it’s nice to be able to let them scatter and choose their own positions. My front flowerbed is doing well, it looks like everything came through winter, so fingers crossed it’ll live up to last year! @terrimclaughlin
