Wendy, do you not know the "rules" at the FN forum....you must post what you ordered if your going to instigate us about a sale! LOL

I plunged and ordered...

Alcea rugosa Yellow Hollyhock
Calandrinia grandiflora
Cirsium japonicum Rose Beauty (I don't know if this will be hardy, but its supposed to bloom the first year)
Dracocephalum rupestre
Mimulus cardinalis (I wonder if this will be hardy or will it self-seed?)
Silene pendula 'Celina'

Any comments on my seeds will be appreciated ;)

Soooowwww, what did you order for 75c?

Well, $0.75 per pack is hard to resist! Thanks for the heads-up on this, TheGr8Blade.
I ordered:
Amsonia hubrechtii, tabernaemontana v. salicifolia (Hmmm, looking at my plant list, I actually planted the latter in 2002, but since I can't recall where it is, I assume I must have killed it.)
Anthemis carpatica - my Anthemis tinctoria, planted last year, were splendid this summer, so must try some more.
Aquilegia chrysantha, vulgaris Tower White, viridiflora
Centaurium erythraea
Cirsium japonicum
Delphinium yunnanense, semibarbatum (tried the latter last winter but had limited germination and the seedlings were doomed)
Digitalis parviflorum - time to try some more exotic foxgloves again, now that the yard is more sheltered
Eriophorum latifolium - cotton grass
Euphorbia marginata - a very attractive annual
Frasera speciosa
Monarda punctata - the most interesting-looking of the monardas, IMO.
Phlox pilosa - just 'cause I don't have it.
Anthyllis montana - a shrub, therefore a longshot. Anthyllis vulneraria has been intersting and hardy, though.
Eryngium amethystinum - I find these things surprisingly hard to germinate!
Gentiana flavida
Glaucium flavum - I have grown prickly/horned poppies before, but this one is supposedly hardy to zone 3?
Helenium amarum
Linum campanulatum, tauricum
Phacelia sericea - not sure why I bought these, as I just planted some this year!?!?
POtentilla rupestris -a white potentilla, recommended by Graham Stuart Thomas - must try it.
Tephrosia virginiana
Teucrium hyrcanicum - hmm, the one I planted in 2004 seemed to be pulling through but then died later in the spring of 2005. Guess I'll try again.

I am trying to show some restraint this year. Last year I was a first year GW'er, seed collector, seed trader, and winter sower. I was in a seed gathering frenzy it was all so new and exciting. It's still exciting so time will tell how controlled I will be.

I ordered:

Clematis campaniflora
Digitalis lanata Cafe Creme
Gaillardia pulchella 'Sundance Bicolor'
Aquilegia vulgaris 'Woodside Variegata'
Clematis integrifolia var. 'Rosea'
Lobelia cardinalis
Papaver lateritium Flore Pleno

Fairly controlled but I was so jealous over the cheap seed talk over at the winter sowing forum from valueseeds.com that I got my sister-in-law in Chicago to place an order for me since they don't ship outside the U.S.

I ordered:

African Daisy Jaffa Ice
Black-Eyed Susan Vine Salmon Shades
Calendula Radio Extra
Columbine Nora Barlow
Foxglove Camelot Rose
Foxglove Glittering Prize
Geranium Reflections
Knautia Macedonia
Mallow Braveheart
Mallow Mauritania
Maltese Cross Dusky Salmon
Morning Glory Dwarf Rainbow Flash
Poppy Black Peony
Poppy Ladybird
Sunflower Yellow Spray Dwarf
Sweet Pea Matucana
Sweet Pea Navy Blue
Tickseed Quills And Thrills

Grand total was $13.92 including shipping.

Oh well, so much for restraint...
Susan

Bad Susan....Bad Susan....
I was doing so good with everyone giving Canadian websites. I just spent $20+ worth of seeds. he he I was going to take a break from the indoor seed planting this year. I could not resist all those wonderful flowers and a sale...mercy!

I think this year I am going to start mine inside a little earlier. I usually start my seeds mid March. I am going to begin the first week in Feb. This should give me bigger plants for transplanting outside.

Thanks Susan. I am truly glad you listed that website. :)
