Beautiful Zinnia on that packet. Can't believe how cheaply you folks can buy packets of seeds! We would be lucky to get a No Frills brand for under $2 and most average around the $4+ mark!! Any wonder I liberate and save seed heads so much! Or buy from internet where they are so much cheaper.

Oh, Cindy, that is a gorgeous Zinnia!  I wish I hadn't put that pack back!  Your seedlings are so healthy!  I believe that I just might try WS next yr. :)

Cindy, if they are Gerbera Daisies, cut off all the old blooms, keep watered if dry, & give some liquid feed.  It may take awhile, but I bet they WILL recover if they are Gerbera Daisies.  You have a "green thumb", so just be patient & give it time.  Plants given to us from special people are priceless!

Very pretty, Robin!  I love iris too, bearded types especially.  Thanks for the eye candy!  Good luck with your division!  Take care all!

A few months ago I posted a photo of an Iris I liberated, I managed to get a photo from the orginal spot of them blooming. Mine isn't big enough to bloom but maybe next year. Also, they seem to be dwarfs.


I had to keep myself from weeding, and I really wanted to move some away from the border since they were being sat on.
