Yippee! The Purple Gomphrena globosa seeds I started on the 2nd have sprouted. Last night I lifted the black plastic sheet that kept them in total darkness and low and behold there were lots of little seedlings. 95 percent germination – not bad – and so fast! Every year I let these annuals go to seed in my garden, but I sew a new flat inside, just to be sure. I cannot imagine my garden without them! I’m waiting for seeds of Black Pearl Pepper to arrive.
I plan on planting the Gomprhena alongside the black and red pearl like peppers and purplish black foilage, of this variety.
