A Long Lasting Favorite

November 8th, 2016

This spring I started a tray of Spring Cassis seeds and I’ve been blown away by their performance in the garden. They were the first things to bloom this spring and they’re still going strong. In fact, I cut a few small bouquets for the table this past weekend.

These will definitely become a staple in my garden for many years to come, I love that they’re so easy. They take the cold, they take the heat, they take the dry, they take the wet, overall they seem to be a fantastic little flower for my garden.

What new plants have you fallen in love with this year?
