Growing Flowers from Seed in Canada

Growing Flowers from Seed in Canada Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The author describes the flower varieties he has raised from seed and grown in his garden during the past twenty years and encourages readers to do the same.

Synopsis:

Raising flowers from seed is something every Canadian gardener can do and there is enormous satisfaction in doing it yourself. It is inexpensive and not difficult so don't be put off by those who say you must have a green thumb. Just follow the instructions on the seed packet and the seed will do the rest. In fact, most flowers are as easy to grow as vegetables.

The author describes the flowers grown from seed. He records his successes and failures, the different varieties he has grown and the ones he recommends for climatic zone 5a. Since 1986, he has created 20 different gardens as he expanded flowerbeds, cut into lawns and coaxed odd corners of his garden into bloom. Each year's garden is significantly different from the previous ones, made necessary as he turned out an abundance of seedlings that had to find growing space somewhere. By choosing different varieties a unique garden is possible as you are not restricted to plants available at your local garden centre. Take walks in your neighbourhood to see which flowers do well and the ones that appeal to you. Then buy seeds appropriate to your local plant hardiness zone. There are hundreds and hundreds of varieties available and I have indicated those that have done well for me and chosen to grow again.
