  •  I ordered a packet of windflowers (8+ / 0-)

    from Native American Seed. It was a really small packet with unbelievably fine and delicate seeds. It was a challenge getting them onto the ground! I didn't realize they were a bulb plant. They grow wild here.

    Your idea of sifting out the bulbs sounds like it would be a great solution. Is there a little bump or any other slight indication which end is up on the bulbs?

    I don't know nothin' 'bout no collard greens.

    •  I also have two anemone that were plants (7+ / 0-)

      and have a little different leaf structure - the flowers are also taller and look more like poppies so maybe that's what you have? One of mine is white and the other pink.

      Although, looking into it further, it says they like to be dry when they are dormant in summer and this garden likely will get more water - maybe I'd better move them while I can and see what happens!

      I never did either until I moved to New England. Down south it was frowned upon by respectable people as it was considered po' people's food. Isn't that amazing! It's one of the most healthful greens to be eating. I LOVE collard greens.
