All year I've been trying, with little or no success, to grow some native woodland flowers from seed. But my luck seems to be turning!
Last week I noticed some activity in my false rue anemone pot. I kept it in a sheltered place during the last two storms and this morning I took it inside for the winter. There's one sprout up and another possible one on the way! Very excited.
False rue anemone is a native in Kentucky, where I grew up. Having it in my Brooklyn backyard would make me very happy!
I got my seed from Prairie Moon. I've noticed that the Lowes on 9th Street has been selling bareroot woodland flowers all fall, but I think they're from a shady source (ie, not ecofriendly) and prefer to try my luck growing from seed. Now I just need to keep this little guy alive till March, when it will be big enough to go outside.
