Seedlings and the Annoyance they Propose...

So, a few weeks ago, I planted some seeds.  I love to garden, and I wanted to save on gardening costs.  I know I won't get to see the beautiful blooms they hold till next year, but I figured this would be a great time to start working with seeds.  As some of you may know, buying flowers already in bloom gets expensive really fast.  I don't want to do that this year, as I did last year. 

My problem has been that in my haste to properly sow the seeds I forgot to label the seeds that I planted.  I have all the seed packets, but when you have seedlings growing there aren't pictures on the packets to identify which seedlings are for which flower.  So, now I'm having to figure that out. 

My hollyhocks are ready to be bedded outside.  I think.  They are about 2 1/2 inches tall and they are one of the few that I did label.  For any of you who are deciding to research this as I am working on today, I'm going to post pics of my seedlings and which flowers they go to for anyone who needs to know. 

Above are  - Summer Carnival Rosy Pink Hollyhocks and it's seedling.  This beautiful flower gets to be 4 1/2 feet tall.  That is literally 1 foot less than I am.  So needless to say, they are tall plants.  :) I'm planning on making a new flower bed to put them in.  I haven't decided where to put the flower bed yet, but I'm running out of time b/c these need to be planted soon.  I think.  :)

Next: Shasta Daisy Alaska and it's seedling

Although planted the same day as the hollyhocks, these aren't nearly as tall.  They are just starting to bud.  :)

Now here's where the tricky work comes in.  I've found other seedlings and I will post them here.  

This is a Salvia Blue Bedder Seedling that I found on the internet.  I did see that those have started sprouting in my little seed garden. 

This is called Blanketflower - Gaillardia Aristata.  I haven't seen these sprout yet in my seed garden, but at least now I know what it will look like. 

My journey to find these seedlings, may be long, but these are just a few of the ones I've found.  I hope this is able to help others in their quest to figure out their seedlings. :)

Happy Gardening!!!!!
