5 Seeds to Plant Now (in the Fall) for Easy Summer Plants

filipendula rubra queen of the prairie by Eric Hunt via www.pithandvigor.comI’ve calculated that for less than $20 you can have a garden full of these 5 beautiful plants.  All you have to do is buy the seeds (generally less than $4/ packet  – which contains at least a few hundred seeds) and sow them outside, straight into the dirt, right now.  These guys all like this kind of autumnal drop-and-go treatment.  So easy – Huge Reward.

1) Filipendula rubra – (Queen of the prairie).  (above)
