This could get addicting- with the right info- Ha ha
I usually hang out in some of the other forums but I think I found a new love and a new reason to be here!
I typically like perennials and bulbs trusty little things that come back every year. But my husband really loves color and the look of annuals (not that I don't) I love them but I always felt that they are a waste of money because they don't come back. Well we moved into a new house and to spruce up the yard the previous owner put in rudebeckia and marigold. Now I know rudebeckia re-seeds itself so that one does not really count. But I remember as a kid my dad loved marigolds because they are simple you deadhead roll between your fingers and next year you get more - so I did this and this year I have mounds of them all over the property- love it! So of course now I am addicted.
I have been researching the internet for more more more.
I have one question and one request
first has anyone ever simply dropped IRIS seeds in the fall and received new plants (went outside today and found beautiful spit open pods with dark seeds).
Second a request, what are your favorites? what plants are simple to get the seeds and what do you do? do you drop them or save them until spring and plant them in the ground (or pots). Personally I hate starting seeds indoors -messy and I am forgetful and if you can't tell by now, lazy. Give me good ones, please !
