I hope you know Renee and her seeds. Located at 6060 Graham Hill Road in Felton, California, or on line at http://www.reneesgarden.com, she has the best lettuces anywhere. I highly recommend the Jade Gem container lettuces. The sunflowers aren’t bad either — bright bandolier and cinnamon sun both worked very well in Fishkill last summer. This year I am going to try sun Samba and sunzilla. But I want to reserve my highest praise, my A Plus, for Mrs. Scott Elliot columbine seed. For years I had looked to replace the columbine I had seen at the International Culinary Institute in Hyde Park. It was tri-color and had a flirtatious nature that required me to return to steal seeds at the right moment in late August. Those seeds didn’t work much to my irritated sadness. BUT then I ordered Renee’s. They not only took, even in my shady window in my New York office. I nursed them along all winter with ice cubes to keep the city dryness from devastating them. They grew and grew and grew and now I have six plants upstate and three in containers downstate. Our flirtation is not over but just begun. Columbine is particularly fertile when it gets going. I am so grateful for Renee and her profligate seeds.
