Aesculus parviflora seed update!

On July 27th, I posted about Elizabeth Lawrence's experience with Buckeye seed from June of 1962.  Her luck almost 50 years ago did not produce much by way of seed, thanks to little critters, but this year luck has been on our side!  I've been watching the few remaining pods and this week they have split, some even falling to the ground.  I collected a handful and planted them right away.  A few more remain on the tree and my hope is to collect them too.  They are really just spectacular! 

Stop by and visit the Aster tartaricus that is just opening and soon, the Helianthus angustifolius will be too!

Yours in the garden,
