We have several other plants growing in our seed starting area. Here's a look at the progress they have made.
propagation of cuttings as well as for seed starting.
Here is a close-up on the dianthus. I haven't decided where to plant them in the garden yet although the self sowing garden is an option. I have dreams in my head of a green roof shed and dianthus would be perfect perennial for planting one. Regardless of where they eventually go the safe planting date is still several weeks away.
And here's another one I'm trying to get going from seed, a hosta! If you look closely at the center peat pellet you can see some green protruding from the seeds. There's no telling what the hosta seedlings might look like in the end. If they are solid colors that's fine, if they are variegated that's good too. It's just fun to experiment. I suspect they are a hybrid of some 'Patriots' and 'Gingko Craig's. That's just one reason why you should let your hostas grow flowers, aside from the beauty of the flowers you just might get bonus plants!
I'll have more updates in the future on these seeds. It's time to start a few more. Only 52 more days until the safe planting date!
