Planting Seeds From Dusk Till Dawn

Early Shades Colors

It’s no surprise that we have black thumbs so these boxed beauties would be a bit of a challenge for us but for all the green thumbs out there, they might be just the thing for you or make the perfect gift for Mom.  Coloni, a Swedish gardening company founded in 2010, creates plant seed mixes according to a theme, much like a fashion designer would for a runway collection (and like we do for our own seasonal lines.)

Coloni’s Spring/Summer 2014 collection, From Dusk Till Dawn, includes three mixes capturing different times of day.  Early Shades has flowers that open to the morning sun like apple blossom bush and poppies, while Harvest Noon has meadow grasses…

and Into the Night consists of exotic, shade-loving blooms such nemopila and collinsia (also known as Purple Chinese Houses.)

We can just imagine a garden planted with these blooms and watch as the flowers open and close throughout the day…  That is, if we ever got the seeds to grow.  Perhaps next year we can even give our mother a real bouquet…

Are you “digging” these seed mixes?  Hope your weekend is filled with garden fun and wishing you all a wonderful Mother’s Day!

    What a great idea and love the idea of the blooms opening and closing at different times. Now like you, if I could just get seeds to grow!!

    I am digging them, what lovely gifts they would make. Sadly, I did not inherit my mother’s green thumb as much as I love flowers and blooms. Hope you have a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend, ladies! XOXO

    Such a great idea! As we develop the landscape on our new property we were talking about the importance of placement of certain plants. The design on these packets is so pretty and looks like a botanical print. I’m going to check out the website! Enjoy your Mother’s Day weekend:)
