It started as a few questions on seeds and seed sowing, a few thoughts put out as a blog post as I prepared to end the holiday celebrations and return to work. It evolved into several longer than normal comments and many more posts from fellow seed-sowing, garden-blogging gardeners from all around.
It showed that many gardeners enjoy sowing seeds! Yeah! It is not a dying aspect of gardening, in a society that wants, and expects, instant results. Many of us are willing to sow seeds and wait, to start literally from the ground up when it comes to growing the plants we want.
But I suspect that there are many gardeners who are still not quite sure of themselves when it comes to seeds. For those gardeners, whoever and wherever you are, I’ve tried to pull together a list of all the gardeners who commented on their seed sowing habits. I would guess that any of these gardeners would be flattered by any requests to provide more information or answer questions on their particular methods of seeding sowing.
Here is the list, everyone I could find, in alphabetical order by whatever name I know them by. If I missed your post on seed sowing, please comment and I’ll add you to the list.

One more question, can you be a gardener, truly, if you don’t sow seeds?
