The Great Seed Experiment Begins!


We are getting ready for my best friend's daughter to come and start her science project.  We have a great helper called the "Propagator."  She is going to plant Allium tuberosum or garlic chive seeds.  Hopefully, they will germinate faster because of the Propagator!

Fortunately I cut these garlic chive flowerheads down and put them in a bag to save them.  They will self-sow rampantly if you let them.  I have some that I haven't cut so I will be digging out the seedlings in the coming year!  I couldn't download my photos from this afternoon.  I'll update this post tomorrow hopefully!

The bag of garlic chive flowerheads looks just like the big bag of lavender that I picked. Memories (sung to the tune of "Memories").

A lovely song to sing as you are harvesting lavender! Thanks for stopping by Jabber.

Hopefully, she will have success or at least learn from it, Leslie and most of all have fun!
