Hello everyone. I’m a lifelong gardener living in Suncook. Glad to be here.

Hi, I am from Conway NH and have been gardening for years. I continue to learn new things every year. Wondering if anyone out there starts cleome from seeds inside? If so when do you start them? I don’t want them to get leggy before I put them out, but want them to be have a good head start.

hi dorcus1. Cleome can be a bit finicky. Put the seeds in the fridge, the crisper drawer, not the freezer for about a week. They thrive at @85 degrees days/65 degrees nights. water with warm water. when sprouts have 4 leaves, transplant to a peat pot then into the garden about 4 weeks later. The seeds are not strong germinators, because of the day/night temp preferences. so be patient.

thank you libbe keane! That is very good information for me. I have had the seeds in the refridge since I collected them. Is that bad? Should I take them out? I think I will start a few soon to see what happens. I will let you know what happens. Thanks again.

Hello All! I found the Folia website about a month ago and I’m hooked!

I am a terrible gardener. Did not inherit a green thumb, which is a shame because both my parents have them. But – I will keep trying and learning.

Last summer was my second vegetable garden. I was also very, very pregnant. I couldn’t keep up with the weeding, and I learned that I needed to fertilize sometime in late August. These plus the lack of rain last summer means that I didn’t get any veggies until early September. But we loved it.

My dream is to have a yard full of flowering bushes and flowers and a garden flourishing with veggies… so I keep trying.

I’m going to winter sow some seeds today or tomorrow. The wind is wicked today and I’m afraid to put them out. We might get gusts of 40 miles per hour tonight – so I think I’ll wait until tomorrow morning. This will be my first time trying winter sowing. Very exciting!

Awesome to meet you, mt.. we’ve exchanged comments here and there, but nothin’ formal. :D

Such fun to have someone in the same weather, so to speak – insane wind here in Merrimack, as well. I’ve been eying the garden and thinking similar thoughts. What will you be sowing?

I tried winter sowing seed one year and didnt’ work for me. I have started petunia seeds inside. Snowing here tonight. We did have some very windy days a few days ago. Took down a traffic light in North Conway it was so bad.
Happy gardening.

Hi all!!! I’m from Keene and am growing just a variety of things that catch my eye. I live in an apartment with two roommates so I have a garden container with various pots that have interested me along the way. Feel free to check out my plantings list to get a feel for what I’m currently growing. Some are up for swap as well if you’re interested. Also follow me!
