Trial by Seed – Week of 3/21/16 – Pinetree Garden Seeds

This week we’re trialing some new flower varieties, as well as transplanting pepper and eggplant seedlings. A few of the new flowers we’re looking into picking up are Fireweed, Plume poppy, ‘Ivory Towers’ Joe pye weed, American Mountain Mint, as well as a couple new dahlias, rudbeckias, and coreopsis. We’re also trialing a goji berry variety, a new echinacea, and some ornamental grass!

Our Jicama is doing very well! As you can see, where the paper towel germinated seedling was once lagging behind, it seems to have picked up the pace and is now looking hardy and healthy!
