Bunny Tails in the Mail


I was reading Marnie's blog http://lilacsandroses.blogspot.com/ awhile back and she was telling about Botanical Interests and the unusual seeds that she found there. Bunny Tails...such a cute name for a cute plant. I had these two Italian terra cotta pots and thought they would look nice in them. I planted some of the seeds in the house, but really did it too early. The plants were wispy and weak, so I did it again, just before I would take them outside. They are just now opening up into their furry little tails..aren't they cute? I have them sitting at the edge of my little driveway flower garden. I'm enjoying them as they grow. I really liked looking at the Botanical Interests website..http://www.botanicalinterests.com/store/shop.php. It is a treat just to look at the artwork and colors. They have everything from seeds of all kinds to tote bags and gift certificates. I love the way the seeds are packaged...not like the packets you find in the stores. I plan on saving my packets for a craft project down the line. It's a fun thing on a rainy day to look at websites like this one. So pretty even if you don't plan on ordering. I couldn't resist.

What a delightful name for a plant, which I have never heard of. My seed sowing was better outdoors than indoors.

Balisha said...

Some of the seeds planted indoors failed, because of planting too early. Some of my plants are really nice and seem better than the ones that I purchased in other years.

I love your Bunny Tails, and that web site I could look at the seed packs all day, they are pretty enough to frame!!! Have a great Weekend.

Balisha said...

Lynn, I had the same thought...The paper used is nice too...not all shiny and cheap looking.

Interesting that bunny tail seeds are now being sold. When I was a kid in New Zealand, this grass grew wild every where, and I would pick handfuls of the bunny tails to place in water in our house. I don't think my mother was all that impressed, with what she probably thought was just weeds.
