I’ve been walking around Reading, placing little packets of seeds (that I make myself) with my business card stapled to them on people’s porches. I’ve also been handing them out to anyone who wants to plant them. I’ll also send one to any subscriber who requests one. If you are one of the lucky ones who has received one, here is a partial list of the flowers you should expect next year:
Honey bees and butterflies love all of these flowers. You can go out and sprinkle them right away if you want to. I wouldn’t put them all in one spot, because some of them get pretty big, such as the chia plants and the sunflowers. Most of the seeds are very tiny, so just put a tiny pinch here and there. They will all reseed themselves and spread in following years. Please let me know how they do and send me pictures.

I scattered some hypericum seeds in a planter about a month ago. They are actually starting to come up despite the cold rain, hard frosts, and inclement weather.
I’d like to try some of your seeds myself. What are the yellow ones in the photo?

Hey Pat! I’m saving the seeds you sent me until early spring. Don’t want them to come up and then freeze. I think I put your address in my phone, so I’ll send you some. The picture above was one I yanked off of a free bee picture website. The flower looks like a shasta daisy, but I’m not sure.
