June 16, 2012 journal

Several weeks ago Ava I were looking through the Southern Exposure Seed Exchange catalog for some unusual flowers to grow this summer, when we came across strawflowers, also called everlasting flowers.   The idea of drying flowers, and having them last a long time seemed kind of appealing, so I added strawflower seeds to our order.

The seeds were planted on May 16, 2012 and today I transplanted the seedlings into self watering containers to try to grow them in the greenhouse.  

I have never grown strawflowers, and I have no idea of if they can be grown in a container, but it should be interesting to try.
