Bluebell flowers can be grown from seed or bulbs, but most gardeners grow bluebells using bulbs.

To grow from seed, sow seeds thinly from late summer to spring in filled with your own sieved or a . Leave in pots for the first year feeding regularly with organic liquid seaweed fertilizer. Plant out to a permanent position in the second year.

To start from bulbs, plant them about 3 inches (8 cm) deep in well-drained soil, preferably in partial shade.

Choose an area under trees or in a border with herbaceous plants. Plant bulbs in groups of four to ten. For maximum effect, choose an area for them to drift over time creating a striking block of color.

Bluebell flowers can tolerate dry conditions. Once they are established they will only need watering if the soil is very dry or there is a drought.

For a great display, feed with in early spring when the first green begins to show. They will also benefit from an over winter.

Left alone, flowers will self-seed and eventually move into all available space. Deadhead flowers as they fade to avoid this, but let the leaves remain as they die down to allow them gather energy for next year’s blooms.

And don’t compost bulbs immediately. Let them dry out for a year before adding to your compost or dispose of them with other household waste.

every four years to encourage healthy plants. Replant large bulbs to create new displays.

Ooooh, lettuce seeds!!

I'd love fresh grown lettuce. That would be awesome.
I have two plants in my kitchen windowsill that I have grown from seeds. I don't know what either of them are, but they have just exploded--tons of foliage and flowers. So i managed to do those right. ;o)
I'll check into the Master Gardener program and see what i can find. I'll ask the nursery tomorrow and see if they have any contact info.
Thanks, Bells.
