"Yes, it is a cool weather crop best grown in spring and fall if you live in warm/hot climates. I live and grow at 8300 feet in zone 3 so cilantro is wonderful to grow here in the summer. As far as 'trimming', harvest it like you do basil.…"

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!

Kristie - thank you so much. I love your enthusiasm too. It's contagious. As per the recommendations of your fave seed "family" - they say to refrig for 3 months. Would it hurt them to lay in the freezer for 6 weeks or so and then warm up with the Mother!?

Kristie - a friend gave me some purple coneflower seeds. Is there a "trick" to getting this started? I am very much a newbie to the herbal medicinal processes. Thanks Shellie.
