Super Hero™ Spry Marigold Seeds. 50 seeds. Parks 5 14 2022

Super Hero™ Spry Marigold Seeds. 50 seeds. Parks 5 14 2022

A popular favorite as well as a winner in trial gardens across the country, Super Hero™ Spry Marigold is the AAS winner that made one of the judges exclaim, “I would love to have this in my yard!” A truly beautiful and exceptional crested French marigold with richly colored burgundy and gold blooms, it’s super-easy to grow and a tireless bloomer.

What sets Super Hero™ Spry Marigold apart from the dozens of other French marigolds on the market?

Here’s what the AAS judges loved:
Earlier bloom time
Better uniformity of size (great for large plantings)
More consistency of the crested bicolor bloom form
And most of all . . . no deadheading

Super Hero™ Spry Marigold is just 8 to 10 inches high and 6 to 8 inches wide, so you can show it off in containers as well as the sunny annual bed. It is also a nice choice for edging the driveway and garden paths. Super Hero™ Spry Marigold is dependable, lower maintenance than any other marigold in the garden, and absolutely beautiful.

Like all marigolds, Super Hero™ Spry Marigold is as valuable in the tomato patch as it is in the annual bed and patio container. Marigolds kill nematodes, soil-borne pests that can destroy your tomato plants. So when you grow this beauty, sprinkle a few seeds around your favorite veggies and watch them grow and fruit better than before.

Give Super Hero™ Spry Marigold plenty of sunshine and good soil drainage, and keep it watered and fed for nonstop flowers from summer into fall. There’s no harder-working nor more useful annual in garden or container.

Super Hero™ Spry Marigold is best direct sown in the warm spring soil, after all danger of frost is past. However, sometimes we just can’t resist starting it indoors for even quicker blooms. If you plan to start your seeds indoors, be sure to check out our Bio Dome Seed Starter Kit. With the Bio Dome, you can control the temperature, light, and soil mix to ensure your seeds become strong for transplant.

Jewel of Africa Nasturtium Seeds, 25 seeds, Park 05 14 2022

Jewel of Africa Nasturtium Seeds, 25 seeds, Park 05 14 2022

Variegated foliage and 4 bloom colorsOne of the most elegant nasturtiums we have ever had the pleasure to grow, Jewel of Africa has richly-colored blooms in 4 colors and cream-striped foliage. Together the leaves and flowers create a striking, almost wildly vibrant mix for garden or container.A classic name in nasturtiums, Jewel of Africa is simply unbeatable for rich color and variation on every leaf and bloom. This 4- to 5-foot vining plant is just the right size to tumble from a hanging basket or twine up a small trellis or patio tub. It can even be allowed to trail along the ground, carpeting the garden in color.

The pale green leaves are splashed with cream, often developing this variegation late in the season. No two leaves will be just alike. And the flowers are almost as unpredictable—you get cream, yellow, peachy pink, and scarlet all on a single plant, many with blotches or markings near the base of the petals. Magnificent!

Both the blooms and the foliage are edible, with a delicious peppery flavor perfect for salads and garnishes. You will want to grow Jewel of Africa in the herb and vegetable garden, where it repels destructive pests such as aphids, beetles, whiteflies, and squash bugs. It’s your edible crops best friend!

The heaviest flowering will usually occur in cool weather, but this annual loves sunshine. It grows rapidly and easily from direct-sowing. Select a sunny spot in any garden soil, even poor dry ones, and begin growing one of the most beautiful, useful, and rewarding annuals you will ever see! Jewel of Africa is a marvel that every garden deserves.

Butterfly Weed seed

Butterfly Weed seed. 50 seeds. Parks.  6-8 weeks indoors.

Butterfly Weed is doubly valuable to pollinators because it serves as a host plant where Monarchs, among others, lay their eggs. And the attractiveness of this flower is rivaled only by its resistance to extreme temperatures. Neither drought-plagued summers nor bitter winters can dim the glow of Asclepias tuberosa.

Butterfly Weed enjoys direct sunlight, and if planted in well-drained soil it will return to your faithfully year after year. (Let the final flowers mature on the plant, so they will scatter more seeds for next year’s garden.)

Zone 3 – 9.  Bloom Start To End Mid Summer – Late Summer
Habit Upright.  Plant Height 18 in – 24 in
Plant Width 24 in – 3 ft.  Bloom Size 2 in – 4 in

Soil conditions and compositions, from sand to gravel, and it generally prefers a neutral to slightly acidic pH.

It is fairly slow to become established and may take as much as three years before it flowers. When it finally does flower, its clusters of bright orange-yellow flowers will display from late spring until late summer. Unlike other milkweeds, butterfly weed does not have caustic milky sap, but it does produce the characteristic seed pods that release silky-tailed seeds to disperse on the wind.

But because it has much lower levels of the toxic sap found in standard milkweed, butterfly weed is regarded as a safer plant in homes with children or pets.

During its first year of life (or until new plants start showing mature growth), you should maintain a moist soil environment for butterfly weed, giving it about one inch of water per week through combined rainfall and irrigation.

Butterfly weed is a low-maintenance plant that does not require any additional fertilization. In fact, doing so can harm the plant, making it excessively leggy and reducing blooms.

Purple Rain Candytuft Seeds

Purple Rain Candytuft Seeds

Purple Rain Candytuft.  50 seeds.  Sow outdoors cool, gravelly soil. Parks.

Candytuft care involves planting in well draining, alkaline soil in a sunny location as the candytuft plant won’t grow in shade or overly damp soil.

May rebloom in the fall. 10-inches tall.

Does well in gravelly soil. Once blooms of the candytuft flower are spent, cut the entire candytuft plant back to ground level to avoid woodiness of the stems. This should be done at least every other year to prevent this short, blooming beauty from becoming too tall with spindly growth. The candytuft plant is actually a woody plant, but is most attractive when treated as an herbaceous perennial.

Sow seeds of the candytuft flower directly into flower beds when soil has warmed to about 70 degrees F. (21 C.). Softwood cuttings of existing plants propagate easily during midsummer for more candytuft flowers to plant in your gardens or to share with friends.

Zinnia Seeds Cut and Come Again Mix

Zinnia Seeds Cut and Come Again Mix

How to grow them: Good full sun is really all that’s required, although some of the newer hybrids will even bloom in partial shade. As for water, they don’t need much, since they’re from hot desert-like habitats. Soil? Almost any soil will do, but they prefer fast-draining gritty soil, if you have that available. Zinnia seeds are perfect for starting indoors to have bloom early. But be sure you wait until every frost is gone, and the soil has warmed up a bit before setting them out. They’re super-sensitive to frost–after all, these plants are from frost-free regions, and don’t like cold soil. If you’d rather, you can just wait until spring arrives, and sow them outside. They’re very undemanding.

Moss Rose

Moss Rose. 25 pelleted seeds. Parks.

Happy Hour™ Mix Moss Rose has a mounded habit, well-branched plant.  Ideal for southern locations and is drought tolerant. The blooms are semi-doubled.

Select a site with well-draining soil. Moss rose plants do not do well in soggy soil.
Fully-grown moss roses are about 6 to 8 in wide and 4 to 8 inch.
Water the seeds thoroughly until the moss rose grows.

The seeds will sprout within 10 to 15 days.

purple tall phlox flower 2 5 5 2022

Growing Phlox: Most are perennials, meaning they go dormant in the autumn and return in the spring.

Pruning. After your plants are killed back by frost, snip the stems to approximately two inches above the ground.

Dividing. You’ll need to divide them every two to three years to keep them thriving.  Space the plants 1 to 2 feet apart.  Good air movement is also important.

Diseases. Powdery mildew; it springs up when the weather is hot and humid,

Pests. Insect pests can be a problem with phlox, too, so keep an eye out for spider mites and other bugs, especially in hot, dry climates or conditions.

  • Keep plants well-watered during the growing season, especially during dry spells. Plants need about 1 inch of rain per week during the growing season.  Water early in the day so the foliage has time to dry off before evening, to minimize disease problems.
  • Keep the soil moist but not saturated.
  • Fertilizer:  After new growth appears, a light fertilizer may be applied. Keep granular fertilizers away from plant crown and foliage to avoid burn injury. Use low rates of a slow release fertilizer, as higher rates may encourage root rots.
  • Pinch off spent flowers for continuous bloom.
