    Just don’t do what I do, forget to water them! My biggest problem is in the summer. My son just built me a new coldframe so am hoping I can get an earlier start this spring.

    Here’s my 2nd planting project for today.  I have about a dozen of these Angel Trumpet pieces divided between two vases of water.  They all have those white bumps all over them & somebody on here told me I didn’t have to wait for the actual roots , I could go ahead & plant them with the bumps.  So I was intending to plant a few & see how they did.  When I got them out of the room about 1/2 of them are growing actual roots.  I decided to plant the best 4  The plant in the little vase is a gardenia I have rooted from a cutting.  The pot & the dirt in it on the rt hand side of the picture have been in the garage & they are cold so I will let it warm up a little first before putting the gardenia in it. And then I have to clean up.

    I’m on vacation – but I cit the big leaf off the palm. I did get permission. Needs to let thenew one go to the other window to keep the plant in balance. I have more to do next week when this weather gets warmer.  There will be lots of plants to take care of when I get home. And I will get my ammerylsis up and going.  Not having numerious plants to trim and move is getting to me. Next I have to get permission to help the african violets I walk by each day! But I have to do a few at a time. Alma

    I have been everywhere looking for potting soil! Guess they don’t realize even houseplants need to be repotted sometimes.

    Do you have a local greenhouse?  If so, I’d call and see if they won’t sell you a cube of Pro-Mix.  I know ours will, I just called them a couple of weeks ago, just gotta go when they are there seeding and stuff since they aren’t really open for business.  Hopefully they’ll be open MLK day since I have that Monday off since they’re only there Monday-Friday off and on.

    None of our greenhouses are open right now, going back out tomorrow to double check. This is the first winter around here they’ve done that, usually Walmart would carry it. Last year they laughed because I wanted seeds the last week of February! I see where our farm store has veggie seeds out now.

    Now how can they sell seeds and not sell something to start them in?  I had really good results using he peat pods, maybe you can start them and by the time they’re ready to transplant they’ll have soil in.  You probably will do better to call the greenhouses and make arrangements to meet them at a certain time there to get a bale of pro-mix.  They’ve got to be starting seed too, you know?

    Lowe’s had all their seed starting kits out.  I don’t know about potting soil I didn’t look. They still have all the bags of dirt, gravel, mulch in the outdoor part. Might be some out there.

    I was in Lowes yesterday and they had everything out.  BTW they do have the trays and cell packs that aren’t the pods etc.  They is 3 trays, domes and 2 sets of 72 cells.  These are the regular 9 cell market packs.

    Thanks for the head’s up!

    NOTE TO SELF: Stay out of Lowe’s!!!

    I have more seeds to start than I will likely have space for and I have NO self control when it comes to seeds (or any kind of gardening for that matter).   It’s good to know that Lowe’s will not be my friend as I fight my addiction (sort of – maybe – NOT). 

    Perhaps Walmart will be a safe place for me to go – for a while.   Hmmm …
