It's "Plant a flower day" and planting a flower or appreciating one seems like the perfect thing to do on this toasty Monday. Below is a collection of vintage seed packets we fancy. They feel royal, untouchable. We imagine in 1866 to get your hands on one of these packets was like magic. Although, we imagine that's exactly how we would feel if someone handed us them today. Plant a flower. It doesn't have to be today or tomorrow - but sometime this spring. Plant it, water it and soon you will be the guardian of something delicate and beautiful.
Spring is right around the corner. And in growing, every day, drop and degree matters! So a lot of our time now will be spent taking care of our tiny plants in the greenhouse. We will be sure to feed them the right amount of water and make sure they are at the temperature that makes them happy! Some plants (like marigolds) are hardier so being in slightly cooler temperature doesn't bother them unlike other plants that may freeze.
Recently we planted hundreds of tiny plugs into larger plots so they can start spreading their roots! Below are some photos of the little guys from lavender to apple mint. Stay tuned for updates...here's to a happy spring! Enjoy!
