Soaking seeds before planting is an “old time” gardener’s trick that many new gardeners are not aware of. When you soak seeds before planting, you can significantly decrease the amount of time it takes for a seed to germinate.
The flower that is known by almost everyone: the sunflower. Talk about cheerful plants! These can bring a smile to a dreary day. This, too, is a very nature-friendly plant. Birds love to eat the seeds, so you might be fighting for them if sunflower seeds are a favorite snack of yours. :) Children will love planting this enormously tall flower and seeing how tall it grows. It will be a source of joy and mystery every day in your garden.
