My dad use to always get seed catalogs. Back in the day. You know, before wheels even
Anyways, I don't recall him ever buying plant starts, well except for maybe onions, but perhaps he did. I didnt really pay attention but now I sure wish I would have.
Last year was my first attempt at gardening. When I was married the first time, we always had a big garden, but I didnt do the planning and all that jazz. Mostly just the canning end of it.
And we had such an awful drought here last year, but I still had a few things. The year before that, I tried to do a few starts from seeds, but that did not go well, and I ended up not getting my beds ready.
So anyways..... I will probably buy most of my starts from the amish again, for no more beds than I have. But I love looking at the seed catalogs. The veggies look so beautiful. And the flowers are gorgeous.
I got a new wholesale seed catalog, for flowers. I can't remember the name of it. I have a large yard, and was thinking of Native wildflowers. I tried to plant a windbreak, and a "dust break" up by the road, but we were so dry. I kept things watered until I went on vacation for a week, and things weren't watered like I had been doing it.
So anyways.......... I pretty much have no flower gardens. Planted a few shrubs last year. Hoping they make it. I joined the garden club last fall. Got a few starts from the ladies, like irises. I think they will make it. They came back up again after we finally got some rain last fall. And my lilac rebloomed! I forgot, I do have one lilac
I can get bushes for $5 from some Mennonites. And some trees. My windbreak I ordered from Conservation.
I am looking at this Bakers Creek now. I love this! Here is the link:rareseeds.com/
