Gardener Extras

  1. For a new garden site, cultivate a few inches. Broadcast coreopsis, poppy, bachelor button and larkspur seed from fall to January at the latest. With this large time frame, you can add seed if some don't germinate. / Alecia says in this garden the spring annuals will reseed by fall. If leaves fall here, they are removed because seeds need light to germinate. / All parts of the foxglove are poisonous, possibly even deadly, if swallowed.
