I planted some seeds about two weeks ago. I  put them in my plant “nursery” area where good things seem to come up on their own. Seeds I planted I am going to do an experiment and plant them in seed cups too to see which do better. I want Black Eyed Susans (Rudbeckia, Tiger Eye Hybrid and Indian Summer from Burpee) in August and I’ve only had random success with them in the past. Random meaning I planted several seed packages and got maybe two plants. But they were wonderful plants. Last year, I planted the seeds too and got nothing. They seem tempermental. So this year, I tried again. I planted Coneflowers (Echinacea, Magnus) too since I keep reading about them.  I hope my new seeds grow soon. We are having a winter storm today so at least they are getting watered. Here is a nice Scabiosa from my garden.Scabiosa
