It's the Year of the Wildflower!

Whether it’s the first time reading one of my blog entries or you’re a devout follower, anytime the topic of “Wildflowers” comes up in the gardening community, the Seed Man gets excited. So you can image how ecstatic I felt when the National Garden Bureau declared 2013 “The Year of the Wildflower!”

Each year, a number of garden professionals get together and select one flower, one vegetable and one perennial to be showcased during the upcoming year. It seems fitting that wildflowers were chosen this year on the heels of the Lady Bird Johnson - “Plant for more Beautiful” commemorative stamps that were released by the USPS in November 2012. If you haven’t seen them yet, I would highly recommend taking a look. As we all know shewas a true pioneer to the wildflower movement in the US.

“My heart found its home long ago in the beauty, mystery, order and disorder of the flowering earth. I wanted future generations to be able to savor what I had all my life.” – Lady Bird Johnson, 2002

So if you’re been thinking about a wildflower planting but thought it was too much work, this is the year to plant! You don’t need a large area. Find a sunny spot in the corner of your garden and plant it with wildflowers this spring and I guarantee you won’t be disappointed!

    Thanks to a generous donation our county master gardeners have a pound of native Pa. oxeye sunflower (Heliopsis Helianthoides ) to hand out at our public functions this coming spring. What a happy coincidence that we will be doing it diring the year of the wildflower!
