About Good Scents

The cut flower business ended in 2011 but I continue to post other items about gardening.

Cut Flower Business Ending

I decided to take a position as Managing Director of Project Grow and finished the Good Scents flower season in August 2011. I have been involved with Project Grow since the mid 80s, as a gardener, volunteer in numerous positions and board member. When the Managing Director unexpectedly resigned in June, I decided to apply for the position, have since been hired, and started on August 1st.

While it might be possible to do both - I ran Good Scents for the first 6 years while working full time - doing so would defeat the purpose of me stopping the business in the first place. While I love growing flowers and many other things about the business, it is a very time consuming job that leaves no time for any gardening outside of work!

Do you sell sweet pea plants? I've tried planting them twice this summer and so far, the chipmunks have eaten all the seeds.

Sorry, I have not been checking for comments. I don't sell sweet pea plants. Your best bet is to plant them in pots in mid-March under lights, and then transplant them outside in mid-late April. That's for where I am in zone 5.
