Summer Perennials

29 Jun

After browsing through some perennial flowers last year at a nursery and viewing the prices, I knew I needed to try and see if I could grow them from seed. Now that I have tried to grow them from seed, I understand why they cost so darn much money.  It takes a full year, sometimes two years to get a perennial to bloom.

Here are some of my success stories:

I love that they will magically reappear every year. My goal was to make my front garden full of perennials so I will only have to weed and watch the beautiful flowers blossom throughout the summer. Here are two huge hollyhock plants I grew from seed that are now in front of the chicken coup.

I really should know what these plants are, but I don’t– does anyone know the name of these plants?

    I think the top sharp leaf is Black-eyed Susan, and bottom is Columbine…
