How to #Grow From #Seeds! #seed #flower #flowers

It’s a rainy Spring in the Mid-Atlantic area of the U.S.A. so it’s a perfect time to sow seeds! This year we are sowing Lupine, Verbena, Zinnias, Impatiens, and Foxglove. Seeds are an inexpensive way to create a gorgeous garden!

We sowed Lupine seeds last year, but they were near Zinnia seeds and something went wrong! What I thought were Lupine turned out to be Zinnas! This year we are sowing Lupine seeds in a container that is far away from our Zinnias!

We made sure the soil stayed moist, and by day 12, we have a Lupine seed sprouting!

The best time to sow seeds is when nighttime temperatures are above 50 degrees, and the weather is in a rainy pattern.

Three (3) weeks have passed, and we now have 4 Lupine seedlings growing and doing very well.

The lupine seedlings are now 7 weeks old! They are now ready to be transplanted to larger containers or in the ground.

Impatiens in the Ground

We love Impatiens! This is the first time we have attempted to grow them from seed!

The Impatiens seeds we sowed in the ground never sprouted, so we transplanted seedlings from containers. It’s been 10 weeks since we sowed the seeds, and now we are anxiously awaiting Impatiens flowers!

Impatiens in Container

The first sign of an Impatiens seed sprouting …

It has been one month since we sowed Impatiens seeds and we now have 4 seedlings growing!

6 weeks have passed since we sowed Impatien seeds, and now we have 3 seedlings!

We will fertilize every week and anxiously await lovely Impatiens flowers!

Ten weeks have passed since we sowed Imaptiens seeds … now we wonder when they are going to bloom …

Finally! A gorgeous red Impatiens flower blooming!

After 3 long months, we have multiple red blossoms on a healthy, lush Impatiens plant!

Verbena in Container

Almost one month ago, we sowed tiny Verbena seeds in a container. Finally, we see tiny seedlings growing that have pointy, crinkly leaves. At first, it was difficult to distinguish Verbena seedlings from weeds. We gave it a little time and now we realize that we have Verbena seedlings!

6 weeks have passed and we now have a healthy Verbena seedling!

It’s been 10 weeks since we sowed Verbena seeds … We are so looking forward to clusters of Verbena flowers!

After 11 weeks, we finally see a flower cluster forming! It looks like the cluster will be purple!

Verbena is blooming! A gorgeous cluster of purple flowers with white centers …

Another container of Verbena blooming a cluster of magenta flowers …
