I’ve been leafing (ha ha ha) through a book on flowers called “Flowers:What to Grow and How to Grow It” by Alan Toogood. Pretty pictures inspire me and now I’ve got the brilliant idea to create a garden wish list for next spring. This book is actually very informative–it’s got photos, charts, instructions, and loads of information for over 200 flowers. It even has a flow chart for pests and diseases.
I already have a whole bunch of wildflower seeds to plant that I found at Home Depot, so I’m set with those. However, I’ve developed a tentative wish list of flowers I’d like to grow in the next season or two. These aren’t necessarily exotic or special, just a few new flowers that I would like to see around my home.
Columbine: I love the double flowers. These are so pretty. It’s a flower that would look nice in someone’s hair.
Dahlia: Several varieties and colors and they’re all beautiful. A handful of various Dahlia’s would make a great bouquet.
I’ll have to remember to track some of these down. I’m always the most exited to see my wildflowers sprout–you never know what you’re going to get!
