It's a wonderful plant I love it very much. It's unique, beautiful and very easy to grow. I posted many photos of my plant, so you can see how it changed over time. It's getting bigger every day I water it twice a week and feed it twice a month, it doesn't need anything else.I never heard of a purple shamrock. I have seen some purple mixed in with clove, but a purple shamrock sounds like something new and unique. It sounds like something that might be helpful for all in question to use and to have. I think I would like a purple shamrock.
I must have misunderstood her post, then. I re-read it, and when she said "plant and seeds," I thought she meant both of the same plant.Never seen them sold in seed, they are little tiny corns.. Its best to find the plant somewhere, they multiply well, easy. And if you live in zone 7 they can be placed in your garden. I got part of a plant from a friend. She had a plant. If you lived closer I would give you a hunk.
That's a four and a half hour drive from Kittanning.
Not too experienced with seeds MaryMary, in fact quite a few duds so I'm hoping the seeds given to me by an old family friend, which I have scattered around my plinth with a sun dial, will take....holly hocks I think and I'm not sure when they should come up....so I'll be "watching how my garden grows". It will be a nice surprise if and when they doclaudine, and Esther Knapicius, I am so glad I opened this thread!! You both have beautiful plants. Now I want one!!
The deeper two-toned purple leaves around the bottom of the plant... are those the older leaves? Do the ones at the top turn that color eventually?
DeborahJane, I'll probably have to order them online as seeds, I've never seen that in a store. How did your seeds do? Any tricks or tips?
Goodness gracious, how frustrating. Mind you I've have had an awful lot of plastic pots that don't add up to the number of plants in my garden. Don't you need a lot of patience to grow from seed? A seed is so tiny. I think maybe, just maybe I'm just a tad impatient. You've reminded me that I did grow poppies a few years ago from seed and they did well. You just sprinkle and forget, at least that is what I did and it worked that time.
I'll try to take a leaf so to speak out of your book and give it a go. Bachelor buttons are a very sweet little flower.@DeborahJane, I don't think anyone has ever accused me of being terribly patient!
I usually plant a variety of seeds in one day. I make a list of what I planted, line by line, and note the date. I look at the seed packet, and by each plant, I write "Days to germinate- X. Start looking - MM/DD." Then I put it on the fridge with a magnet. (Reminds me to water them.)
With the variety of plants, there is always something to look forward to next.
Not too patient - Bachelor buttons said 7-10 days, and they popped up in 3!!
