Some plants from divisions like the peonies. Some from cuttings and starts. A few notable ones from the clearance racks at the garden center. Most from seed. Thanks Trudi and all the wintersowers that have helped me with seeds and inspiration. It's a cottage garden for sure, but I could not have done it without this forum.
