Excitement! My first online order of seeds have arrived from POD Easy, Edible Gardening! Thanks go out to NZ Ecochick for making me aware of the special: buy $25 or more of seeds and receive 5 free packets of flowers and 5 free packets of vegetables. This is 5 free packets more than POD’s usual offer.
A great opportunity to replenish the staples that are getting low; like broccoli, lettuce, carrots, radish, spinach and beetroot. To my joy, they made sure that I received no double-ups with the freebies sent my way.
The free flower varieties are excellent additions to my already established bee garden: dianthus, sweet pea, aster, phlox and portulaca. More coincidence than careful planning, these varieties do not double up with the marigold, lobelia, alyssum and pansy seeds that I bought last weekend and are already shooting up in the hot house cabinet.
There’s just something about plain brown paper packaging that make these little beauties sing to me. I cannot wait to get them into my seed trays!
