Seed Scarification and Seed Stratification


I've had a few people ask me how to cold stratify seeds, such as purple coneflower (echinacea). This blog post by Mr. Brown Thumb offers a great explanation, complete with pictures, too! EASY!

It's a Hay Day!

 Springtime in the Rockies is.... unpredictable, to put it simply. One day it's warm (ish) with blue skies infused with hopeful thoughts of gardening and the next day you wake to foot of snow on the ground. But it is precisely this unpredictability and wonder that I love so much!
