The seedlings are starting to appear, a few days after they were planted. We will be continuously seeding as the weeks go by. We sort our seed packages into groups of time frames. Some seeds need to be started 8-10 weeks before planting, some 6-8 weeks, some 2 weeks and so on. By sorting the packages, all seeds are started at the time intervals that are needed for transplanting into the gardens.

Hydrangea a. Invincibelle Spirit
The picture above is a new Hydrangea we will be offering for Spring sales. It is hardy and as adaptable as the Annabelle, but produces loads of hot pink flowers from early summer to frost. Dark pink buds open to hot pink flowers which then turn soft pink as they mature, finally changing to green at the end of their life cycle. Deadheading not necessary. Grows to 36-48" and spreads 36-48" with a mounding habit. Blooms on new wood and requires full to part sun. Hardy to Zone 3 and is an excellent cut flower. May be pruned back in late winter to encourage strong new growth and blooming. Adaptable to most, moist well drained soils. Bloom colour is not affected by soil pH.
