Re: what does your garden grow/seed

As for my little slice of Heaven - got lots of four o'clock seeds as
usual. Will have lots of yellow trumpet vine (Campsis 'Flava') seeds
when the pods dry and next February, early March - cannas!! It's the
only time I can ship them before they get too big for copy paper boxes.
Eva sent me pictures of her enormous stand of cannas grown from one box
full I sent her Spring 2002. Prolific creatures they are. I can't
imagine having to dig them all up though - yikes. Also have lots of
lemon balm seedlings now and in Spring if anyone wants any...
