The week after next is March and it will be meteorological spring! For those of us who are cultivating the earth types, we’re planning or at least daydreaming about our gardens. Even if it’s just one or two small containers on a window sill. We’re going to be growing something. So we’re looking for seeds!
The pictures above show seeds harvested from rose hips from my mom’s rose bush. It was fun and seemed like I might be on my way to growing a rose bush of my own. There were a few attempts. Several seedlings grew. Rest in peace dear ones. I’m sorry I couldn’t keep you alive.
I’m not quite sure what went so sadly wrong, but those failures don’t deter me. I know I have a green thumb. Maybe just not with roses. Years ago, I bought a miniature rose bush. It lasted for a few years and is gone now too. Gone, but never forgotten. It was a beauty and I do love roses.
Anyway, a recent timely email from someone included a wonderful resource for finding seeds and supporting Black owned businesses. Perfect for Black History Month and all year round. I’ll be looking for some seeds, but not for roses.
So far, I’m planning to grow: basil, rosemary, green leaf lettuce, green onions, hydrangeas and some wildflowers. We’ll see how it goes. Wish me luck!
Below is a list with links to websites of some seed businesses. Happy planting!
