Rebecca ! I think this is a great idea ! I have a fridge drawer filled with seeds and have to plant them this year. Of course, I said that last year. Everytime I think about some pretty flowers that I see in the garden center, I remember those seeds and the economy and think, plant those seeds !
I know folks are buying veggie seeds like crazy due to the economy but I would think that flower seeds would have near to the same increase in interest simply to have beauty for less money.
I'm glad to hear of a Fall Robin as perhaps if I tell myself whatever does not get planted this spring will go into that Robin, I will be motivated to plant what I have and if I don't, or don't plant everything, off they go !
