Bee garden starter kit
I have hundreds of fresh-harvested seeds from my bee gardens this year, and not enough space to use them, so I will try and turn this surplus into a something to help this project grow and flourish.
For a $15 donation to the biodiverseed project, I will send you a bee garden starter kit. With the exception of gladiolus, which should be lifted and stored indoors every year, these plants will all survive or re-seed in zones 5 and higher. The kit will be complete with sowing instructions. Many of these should be sown in Fall.
- Giant Alliums (“Globemaster” and “Millenium”) in purple and white - pictured
- Wild Danish Lupines (purple and pink) - pictured
- Bearded iris (old inherited variety, cultivar unknown) - pictured
- Digitalis (pink and white) - pictured
- Gladiolus (pink) - pictured // if not available, will be swapped with Hollyhock
- Borage (ranges from white to pink to purple to blue) - pictured
- Danish Wild Rose (pink and white) - not pictured
I grow these plants for many purposes: many are edible (alliums, borage, nigella, calendula, mint), or nitrogen fixers (lupines), or pest-repellant (marigolds) in addition to being beneficial to pollinators.
Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to order. I can combine an order with any of the other offers for free seeds from my garden right now.
*I usually can’t ship to California, Hawai’i, or Australia. Please make sure that these species are not invasive in your area: I will also check before I ship. The seeds are shipped from Denmark. Please note this is not a “sale,” but rather a gift, for a donation.
Look into your own heart, discover what it is that gives you pain and then refuse, under any circumstance whatsoever, to inflict that pain on anybody else.
Karen Armstrong (via pickaloobluefruittree)
Watch any plant or animal and let it teach you acceptance of what is, surrender to the Now. Let it teach you Being. Let it teach you integrity — which means to be one, to be yourself, to be real. Let it teach you how to live and how to die, and how not to make living and dying into a problem.
Eckhart Tolle (via thecalminside)
Stress only happens when you resist life’s events.
Michael Singer - The Untethered Soul (via iam-youis)
In dwelling, live close to the ground.
In thinking, keep to the simple.
In conflict, be fair and generous.
In governing, don’t try to control.
In work, do what you enjoy.
In family life, be completely present.
Lao Tzu (via thecalminside)
It is essential to understand that an emotion is merely something that arises, remains, and then goes away. A storm comes, it stays a while, and then it moves away.
Thich Nhat Hanh (via thecalminside)
Love has no culture, boundaries, race and religion. It is pure and beautiful like early morning sunrise falling in lake.
