Seed Buying Frustrations in a Pandemic

Seed Buying Frustrations in a Pandemic

If the last two years have taught us something it’s unchangingly be prepared. The pandemic has unauthentic the whole gardening industry and they weren’t prepared for it. With increasingly people working from home or out of work they navigated to the when yard and gardens sprung up everywhere. All of a sudden the demand for seeds and plants skyrocketed. What many people don’t understand is that plants have to well-constructed their lifecycle surpassing the seeds can be harvested. Seeds are harvested and cleaned and then graded and placed in packages, much of it stuff washed-up by hand. I have unconfined respect for seed packagers as I grow and save seed myself. It’s time consuming.

I am ownership seed and growing wedding flowers for a friend next spring. I have received half of the seeds and tried to buy the rest yesterday. I sat there on my phone waiting for the seed visitor to open. It was just without 3pm and I watchfully waited for seeds that are supposed to be released. A few minutes later all the seed I wanted to buy were now listed as misogynist in January. For most of them its okay as most flower seeds are started in March and April. It was Lisianthus seed that I needed for a January planting. You see Lisianthus is a plant vocalist when it comes to growing it. It needs to be started 10-12 weeks surpassing it goes outside. It takes a while to get started and a long time for it to bloom. It doesn’t like the rain so I may have to add some hoops of plastic over top. Without all, I live in on the west tailspin of BC and we get lots of rain. I will still order the seed in January and hope they get shipped quickly. With all the flooding in BC there have been some delays. We are fortunate to not be unauthentic by the floods in the Fraser Valley. My seed worries are nothing compared to what people are going through in the valley.

So I think I’m going to see if the bride and I can icon out an volitional flower. It’s unchangingly weightier to have options. There are unchangingly dahlias which would be in full viridity in late August. If you have any ideas for an unorganized flower I’m unshut for ideas. I’m growing carnations but I doubt they will be a good alternative. I’ve looked at other seed sites but most haven’t released their 2022 seeds yet. I guess I have to be patient.


I can’t wait to start growing seeds again. It’s what I love to do, propagating seeds and cuttings. Bringing new plants into this world. Making this world just a bit increasingly trappy one plant at a time. On that note, I hope to have a plant sale in the garden in early May. I miss people and their love for plants. Let’s hope 2022 brings us an well-healed year in the garden full of hope and joy.
