I'm a lazy gardener too. I haven't tried seeds until this year, but I figured the same thing last fall: if the plants drop their seeds and babies germinate and grow, then why go through all the hassle? We'll see if my poppies and cleomes do well. It's too early to tell without warm temperatures.

And I managed to kill the ones I started in peat pots. Totally bummed but now I know that seed starting soil dries out super super fast. Disappointing.

What is that fantastic purple and white flower?

Don't call it "lazy"--call it "natural."


That purple and white flower is horsemint. It grows wild and can also be purchased from Wildseed Farms. Also called "Chinese lantern" by some folks.
