Amelia Vr Hybrid Tomato Seeds - Vegetable Seeds & Plants

80 days from setting out transplants. Determinate. A sensation throughout the southeast ever since its 2004 introduction in Texas, Amelia is one of the very few tomato plants that is resistant to Tomato Spotted Wilt Virus, the scourge of many a fine vegetable garden in that region of the country! But because these 8- to 10-ounce tomatoes also taste delicious, Amelia's popularity now has less to do with its terrific disease resistance and more to do with compact plant size and big, satisfying flavor!These round, bright red tomatoes are simply scrumptious. In addition to spotted wilt virus, they stand up beautifully to nematodes, gray leaf spot, verticillium wilt, and fusarium wilt -- in fact, to just about every problem other tomatoes can have! This makes Amelia a great choice for new gardeners, but even seasoned vets will appreciate the tangy, meaty bite of this mid- to large-size fruit.And you can expect big yields on compact plants! Amelia is determinate, meaning that it ripens its crop of tomatoes all together, within just a few weeks, instead of continuing to set new fruit all season. This makes it the perfect choice for gardeners looking to can, sauce, juice, sun-dry, and/or freeze their tomatoes!Amelia reaches just 4 to 5 feet high, so it's ideal for patio containers as well as the garden. And despite its reduced stature, it sets 20 to 30 fruits on every plant. Be sure to stake it to hold up its big bounty of fruit.Start the seeds indoors 5 to 6 weeks before the last frost date. Plant outdoors when danger of frost is past and night temperatures consistently remain above 55 degrees F. If an unexpected late frost is forecasted, protect young plants with plastic sheeting or other cover. Set plants 2 to 2½ feet apart. Pkt is 250 seeds.

Arrabona Red Celosia Seeds - Flower Seeds & Plants

Brilliant orange-red plumes cluster tightly above bright olive-green foliage on this award-winning beauty! Boasting excellent branching, a super-long season of bloom (extending into October in mild and warm climates!), and nice uniformity, Arrabona is the heat-loving, drought-tolerant annual you MUST try this year!Bred in Budapest and named for an ancient Hungarian city, Arrabona is technically an intermediate-sized Celosia, though its compact, dense habit is a bit wider than you might expect. The first of its kind to really flower heavily on side-shoots, it sets massive flames of brightest scarlet with a hint of orange. Expect the blooms to begin in midsummer from a spring sowing, and to continue well into fall.Arrabona stands just 10 to 14 inches high and up to 15 inches wide. It craves sunshine and heat, thriving in semi-tropical climates as effortlessly as it does in milder areas. Very tolerant of drought, it's the type of plant you can fearlessly grow in containers right through the worst summer heat. But it also looks terrific in a large garden planting, as an accent, and even as knock-em-dead edging!Celosia walked off with top honors at the 2014 Fleuroselect Awards in Europe, and it's easy to see why. The seed has a higher germination rate than older varieties, and the color is a new -- and blindingly bright! -- shade for the family. Best of all, you can grow a large planting of Arrabona and expect all the plants to reach almost exactly the same height and width. They will bloom at the same time, too. This uniformity makes them superb for formal settings and the wildly diverse annual bed as well!Like most Celosia, Arrabona prefers to be direct-sown, and once it has germinated, it would rather not be moved. Sow the seed outdoors well after all danger of frost has passed, setting it just 1/8-inch deep and covering lightly. It should sprout in 5 to 7 days. Thin the plants to about 8 inches apart for dense, leaf-to-leaf coverage. They should be blooming by mid-July from a May sowing.If you prefer to begin them indoors, here's how: Sow them at 75 to 80 degrees F, 1/8-inch deep and covered lightly. After germination, grow on at 70 degrees F, and bottom-water with lukewarm water to avoid chills. The seedlings are usually ready to transplant in just 3 weeks. When you set them outdoors, protect them from direct sun for about a week while they acclimatize. Bred by master plantsman Dr. Zoltan Kovats at the Research Institute of Budapest, Arrabona Red is a breakthrough in color, branching, and flowering ability. We can't wait to grow it again in our trials this season, and we hope it will be a big part of your annual bed, too! Packet is 20 seeds.

Desert Flame Daylily - Perennial Plants

It's easy to see why the American Hemerocallis Society honored this daylily with an award: the blooms are huge, brilliantly colored, and appear twice a year on vigorous plants that go totally dormant in winter, making them successful in northern gardens where semi-evergreen daylilies often struggle with rot. Merge Desert Flame into your sunny border, foundation, meadow, or driveway garden this season, and watch how it outperforms nearly every other plant in the vicinity!Desert Flame is a tetraploid, meaning it has twice the chromosomes of traditional (diploid) daylilies. This is significant for several reasons. First, it gives the plant greater vigor, resulting in larger, brighter, more substantial blooms that repeat in late summer after a heavy early season flush. Second, it increases the growth potential of the plant, helping it stand up to adversity and send out new flowering stems quicker than older varieties. Third, it takes off more quickly in spring and then goes totally dormant in winter, making maintenance a breeze!This variety was introduced by Santa Lucia in 1996, and simply radiates bright orange-red tones. The first flush of bloom is the heaviest, and then the plant rests during the hottest weeks of midsummer. The second flush occurs in late season, when little else in the perennial garden is looking its best. You'll love the "encore" every year!Desert Flame reaches about 3 feet tall and needs no care beyond pampering the first season or two, to get its root system established. Like all daylilies, it withstands cold, heat, humidity, and drought without turning a leaf. Deer leave it alone. Other pests and diseases seldom trouble it. All it asks is good soil drainage and plenty of sunshine! Zones 3-9.

Flaming Flare Hybrid Pepper Seeds - Vegetable Seeds & Plants

75 days from setting out transplants.We love this new Fresno pepper! The brilliant scarlet fruit stands out a mile in the garden (not to mention on the plate!), and the flavor is the perfect blend of sweet and spicy, with a medium-pungent bite that should satisfy the whole family. Best of all, Flaming Flare grows anywhere in the country, not just in the hot, dry climates favored by traditional Fresno types. No wonder the All-America Selection judges declared it a national winner for 2015!These peppers arise in great numbers (15 or more per plant!) on vigorous plants that stand up to tobacco mosaic virus (TMV) and tobamo po virus without dropping a leaf. Reaching about 3¾ inches long and 1 inch in diameter at the shoulder, these tapering fruits can be picked green, but will not crack or lose one jot of flavor if allowed to mature to their natural fiery red. And they grow hotter and more nutritious as they ripen!Flaming Flare's flavor is a combination of sweet and spicy, hot and mild. You won't have to warn guests about the heat in the food, yet they'll definitely taste the rich pop of fire! Flaming Flare is versatile enough to grill or pickle, but we think its best use is in sauces, where its rich flavor is released slowly and can permeate the entire dish. You're going to save these peppers for those special meals when you know your chile sauce has to be exceptional!Best of all, you can grow Flaming Flare successfully even if you live in a cooler-summer climate, or if your garden gets a lot of rain. Traditionally it's been tough for Fresnos to adapt to growing conditions other than their favorite: hot and dry. But Flaming Flare prompted judges across the country to remark on trouble-free growth and ease of culture, not to mention heavy production even when the weather did not cooperate! That's music to the ears of us home gardeners who never know what Mother Nature is going to spring on us next!Are you familiar with Fresno peppers? They are relative newcomers on the scene -- a grower named Clarence Brown introduced them in 1952, naming them for the central California area in which he developed them. Fresno peppers were immediately valued for their heavy production under low-water conditions. They simply don't need as much irrigation throughout the growing season as most other types of peppers, which is fantastic in today's thirsty gardens!Start the seeds indoors about 7 to 10 weeks before the last scheduled spring frost in your area. Peppers like warm soil and frost-free nights, so wait to transplant the seedlings until they have at least 2 sets of true leaves and spring is well underway. Fertilize when the flowers begin to appear, and keep the moisture level even throughout the growing season if possible. Offer some support to this vining plant, to hold up all those big peppers! You will find Flaming Flare a snap to grow. Pkt is 15 seeds.

Cairo Hybrid Cabbage Seeds - Vegetable Seeds & Plants

85 days from transplanted seedlings. Of all the red cabbages we grew and visited in trial gardens across the country, Cairo Hybrid was far and away the best in every category. It looks terrific, offers densely packed heads for great value, boasts an unrivalled disease resistance package, and has a mild flavor the whole family will love!These burgundy heads range from 3 to 6 pounds and average about 8 inches in diameter. They're heavier than they look, because the leaves are so tightly wrapped around the small central core. Excellent wrapper leaf protection minimizes your risk of sunscald and keeps the leaves beneath it crisp, sweet, and tender. There's literally no better-looking red cabbage anywhere!But a cabbage is only as good as its flavor, and Cairo has a mild, satisfying bite with no aftertaste. In taste tests, it was the consistent winner. And talk about plate appeal -- these rich red leaves are eye-catching from a distance!Best of all, from a gardener's point of view, is the disease resistance this rough-and-ready hybrid offers. It is unfazed by both Fusarium and Black Rot, which between them take out many a red cabbage every year! You'll spend less time tending Cairo than any cabbage you've ever grown -- it's THAT gardenworthy!This plant reaches 24 inches high and about 20 inches wide, with an upright habit and a get-up-and-grow attitude toward life you'll love. You can't go wrong with Cairo!Cabbage is a cool-season crop, sown in early spring for early-summer harvest or in mid- to late summer for fall harvest. Where winters are mild, it can be sown nearly year-round, except during the hot summer months. Start indoors or direct-sow, spacing plants 2 feet apart for large heads, 1 to 1? feet apart for smaller heads. Before planting, prepare the soil well with fertilizer, and add a dose of ammonium nitrate about a month into the growth season. Harvest the heads when they are firm and brightly colored. Plants may form smaller side-heads after the main head is harvested. Pkt is 50 seeds.

Sweet Treats Hybrid Tomato Seeds - Vegetable Seeds & Plants

70 days from setting out transplants. Indeterminate.Pink tomatoes have long been popular in the Far East, where their more balanced flavor -- a perfect blend of solids and gels, acids and sugars -- appeals to the palate. Now they're making their way into American gardens. But this is the first pink CHERRY we've seen, and we think it's one of the best all-around performers in the field and on the plate!Sweet Treats sets big clusters of 12 to 15 oblong-ish, rosy-pink tomatoes, each weighing ¾ to 1 ounce. Let them ripen past the "red" stage into their full pink glory for best flavor and nutrition. You'll be able to clearly see the difference in color between them and all the plain old red tomatoes growing around them!Sweet Treats cherries can have a Brix of up to 9, and are considered gourmet eating quality. You may have trouble getting them to the plate, though, because they look so appetizing hanging right on the plant! (And what's better than a sun-warmed cherry tomato on a hot summer day in the garden?!) One of the best qualities of this cherry is its exceptional disease resistance. The fruits resist cracking (the bane of cherry tomatoes!), while the plants stand up to root rot, gray leaf spot, fusarium wilt, and tobacco mosaic virus. This means bigger crops on healthier, longer-lasting plants!Start seeds indoors 5 to 6 weeks before the last frost date. Plant outdoors when danger of frost is past and night temperatures consistently remain above 55 degrees F. If an unexpected late frost is forecasted, protect young plants with plastic sheeting or other cover. Set plants 2 to 2½ feet apart. Pkt is 10 seeds.

Zahara Double Fire Zinnia Seeds - Flower Seeds & Plants

The bedding Zinnia of our dreams, the Zahara series was introduced in 2009 and immediately became famous for its resistance to mildew and leaf spot, its nonstop blooms, and its larger flower size. This plant stands up to punishing conditions so beautifully that it was planted at the Beijing Olympics site (and boy, did it ever get noticed!) Now we're delighted to announce a double-flowered cherryorange, red, and gold combo that will steal the thunder in any setting you choose for it. It has just won a 2010 AAS award, and it's waiting to transform your sunny garden into a fiery glow of brilliant color! These blooms are fully 2? inches wide, and there's more of them -- they pop up all over super-compact plants, drawing bees and butterflies into the garden and absolutely wowing those hot, dry beds and water-starved containers. They're not really grown for cutflowers, but you'll find yourself picking plenty for bouquets . . . and why not? New flowers will open to replace them double-quick!Renowned for its ability to withstand heat, humidity, drought, and just about anything else, the Zahara series is the first bedding Zinnia that can truly claim to be disease-resistant. Mildew is a traditional enemy of the Zinnia, but Zahara's got it licked! (Or should we say "dried"?!) Luckily, it's also very long-blooming, prepared to continue well into autumn as long as the hot weather holds. What a joy!This is the annual you'll want along that baking-hot driveway or cement path, crowding against the house (the walls reflect heat), and beautifying the patio (which never gets watered often enough). Just 12 to 18 inches high and wide, it can be planted a bit more closely than other bedding Zinnias, again thanks to the mildew resistance. No need to worry about the foliage "touching"! Direct-sow the seeds. When the soil has already warmed and spring is well underway, this plant will flower within 5 to 6 weeks of sowing. But if you want to get an earlier start, or if that hot April turns into a chilly May, no fear -- Zahara Double Fire will grow vigorously all the same, and simply wait for the warm weather before blooming! Why can't all plants be this cooperative? No wonder it won an AAS award! Pkt is 25 seeds.

Arizona Sun Blanket Flower Seeds - Flower Seeds & Plants

2005 All-America Selection2005 Fleuroselect Gold MedalThis is such an exciting breeding breakthrough for the Blanket Flower family that we hardly know where to begin explaining it! Until now, Blanket Flowers have needed a "vernalization" period to flower -- that is, they had to go through winter temperatures in order to begin the flowering process. Well, 'Arizona Sun' NEEDS NO VERNALIZATION. What this means for us as gardeners is that this plant blooms much, much earlier than other varieties (up to a month!), flowers very heavily even the first year, and sets masses and masses of blooms. As "side benefits," it's also uniform in size and leaf structure. You just won't believe the flower power of 'Arizona Sun' until you see it blooming -- and blooming, and blooming! -- in your garden!The flowers are large, many-petaled, and lovely. Expect them to reach 4 inches wide and to crowd one another for space on compact plants 12 inches high and 10 to 14 inches wide. They begin blooming in late spring and won't quit until nipped by fall frost! NO wonder 'Arizona Sun' has received top honors on both sides of the Atlantic!The plant size is uniform, too, which is great for large plantings. And if you've grown other Blanket Flowers from seed, such as 'Goblin', you'll be impressed by the way 'Arizona Sun's foliage looks identical from plant to plant. One of the odd things about Blanket Flowers is that the leaf shape sometimes varies greatly, so that when a large planting is out of bloom, it looks as though it's got 5 or 6 different species instead of just one variety! (We sometimes get calls from folks who have sown their 'Goblin' seeds and come up with wildly different looking plants. Once they bloom they all look alike, but when they're just leaves, you can really spot the differences in foliage shape and texture!) 'Arizona Sun' looks identical from plant to plant, making it suitable even for formal plantings.Hardy from one end of the country to the other (zones 3-10), this native perennial is happy in any sun-soaked spot. It puts up with heat, humidity, cold, poor soil, and -- once it has built up a good root system in your garden -- drought. The flowers are lovely for cutting, and they make nice garden companions to other sun-loving natives, especially the newcomer in the Arizona family, beautiful 'Red Shades,' which reaches the same size and blooms at the same time as 'Arizona Sun.' Other great companions include Coreopsis, Echinacea, and Yarrow. Starting 'Arizona Sun' from seed is easy. Sow indoors or out, germinating at 70 to 75 degrees F and leaving the seeds uncovered. They will sprout within 5 to 10 days, and (if begun indoors) can be transplanted anytime after the seedlings have 2 sets of true leaves. (The first "leaves," actually cotyledons, will shrivel and fall off when the seedling is young.) 'Arizona Sun' will begin blooming 12 to 15 weeks after sowing -- unheard-of for a Blanket Flower and pretty quick for any perennial! Zones 3-10. Pkt is 25 se

Presto Gold Coreopsis grandiflora Flower Seeds - Perennial Plants

Humble Tickseed has never been so well-dressed! Presto is a new double-flowered Coreopsis from seed that boasts brilliant golden blooms beginning before spring has passed and often continuing into autumn. Large and very showy, they cover this super-compact plant, which is just as easy to grow and adaptable to differing climates as its plain-jane cousins.Each bloom measures 2 to 2 1/2 inches wide, with a small golden-red center and frizzled, serrated petals that stand out beautifully. They appear profusely on dwarf plants with foliage just 6 to 8 inches high and wide, and are eye-catching in any setting! A large planting in the sunny border or open meadow garden is entrancing, but even in smaller plantings, Presto stands out.Although these blooms are far more elegant than those of most other Coreopsis, Presto is just as easy to grow and adaptable to diverse conditions. Unpalatable to deer and tolerant of drought, this native plant withstands unseasonable heat, humidity, and even cold without dropping a leaf. It thrives in poor dry soils as well as moist enriched ones, and sets new buds continuously, especially when the flowers are cut or deadheaded promptly.Combine Presto with other Coreopses as well with other sun-loving, adaptable perennials such as Echinacea and Salvia. It is a nearly effortless way to create long seasons of color in any sunny spot! Zones 4-9. Pkt is 25 seeds.
