    >Where I am now there are patches of chicory.It only blooms in the morning or on cloudy days.I think its one of the prettiest wildflowers around.The bees work it some.

    Maybe it depends on the honey flow or the climate. Here they are in bloom all day and the bees are all over them. They grow mostly on the roadsides. They bloom around here from as early as June to as late as October.

    Here's a picture of a bee on one flower on the Mann Lake cover. http://www.mannlakeltd.com/catalog/index_splash.htm

    Mark- You will love this and if yu don't you might want to duck and cover. LOL!

    I received your seeds today and to did the postal service. Somewhere along the line, your envelope was open (manhandled) to see what was inside. I think the plastic bread bag was the give away... To there surprise, the seeds were wild flower. Can you image their initial thoughts.

    Thank you for the Globe seed and the wild flower seed. Do you have any idea what the wild flower seed might spring forth?

    Don't get spooky now!

    Theres my favorite purple loosestrife.....but I don't think most states would appreciate your trying to spread it around. They are trying to eradicate it here.

    I now have a good supply of both Missouri and Ridgid Goldenrod.

    Anyone care to swap? I would like to have white Aster.

    Keep an eye on them, pick when they are ready to fall. Let me know when you are ready and which type of Goldenrod you want.

    beecatcher, I'd like some of that vitex if you don't mind. All I have are spearmint and em well that seed these folks use or stings.... forgot it's name...

    Help! lol

    I have native sunflowers too, they grow real tall. I have some hot pepper seed also. I hope to grow lots of hot peppers next spring for my cayenne capsules I take daily.

    Anyway these are some of the seed I have. If anyone is interested. And I still have to get seed sent off to U know who up in Iowa.

    I'll get this packaged up today, I promise.

    Been busier then a one armed paper hanger.

    Daisy,
    The plant your thinking of is Plantain. ; )
    I forgot to send you some ST. John's Wort. Did you want any of that? Anyone else?

    TAWoods, did you still want some chicory?

    Some of you had questions about Eucalyptus globulus-blue gum. True, they don't look to pretty but wow, do they produce honey. Most importantly most bloom in the winter and each tree can bloom for several months.

    Blue gums are/were planted for wind breaks in citrus and avacado orchards and between freeways. They can grow well above 100' And live for over a century.

    Blue gum is just one of several varieties of eucalyptus that grow out here, most are quite beautiful in fact and look nothing like the blue gum. But they all have a few drawbacks, very messy and will not grow where it frosts, they also are a fire hazzard and will explode in flames.

    The honey is dark and has a slight menthol flavor, but in the winter,who cares, it sure builds up the bees for spring.Also, Tupelo is not in the Eucalyptus family.

    I am a eucalyptus honey producer / it is not dark honey here south of San Francisco. Freezes at about 25 degrees. Blue gums are the most prevelant, with many smaller types used on the freeways and landscaping. Blue gums just starting to bloom now / thru April. Easy from seed. There is a blue gum holocaust all over California, people think they are too big, messy, brittle and fire prone. In my area, the penninsula, was covered with hundreds of acres before post war housing covered the land. Still a lot here but hard to find apiary sites.

    dragonfly,

    Is the vitex difficult to grow from seed? If you have extra I'd love to get some! Regretfully I don't have any interesting seeds to offer in return....
