A Tea Garden Giveaway!

Last year was the first year I tried growing plants from seed, and I was very pleased with the seeds I got from Renee's Garden. This year I'm again going to plant some Renee's Garden seeds, thanks to the company's kind offer to send me some sample packets. What will I be growing?

I'm perhaps most excited about a new introduction, Zinger Hibiscus which can be used to make herbal tea.

Continuing the tea theme, I'll be planting Teatime Four O'Clocks and Earl Grey Larkspur.


And you may wonder about my choice of Cathedral Bells, but this plant is also known by another name.

Who wouldn't love to have Cup and Saucer Vine growing in the flower garden? If you'd like to win these four seed packets and give these plants a try, just leave a comment between now and Monday at 7 a.m. EST. Good luck and happy gardening!

I'm just starting to plan a "tea" themed garden, and these flower seeds are perfect! Thank you for the chance to win them... I'm looking up the supplier to order my own... just in case! Happy gardening...

Would love the seeds for my new garden!

I've never heard of this! What fun, I need to look this up. My garden club holds a yearly tea in the spring, we just had it this past week. These would make great door prizes!

I'd love to try them.

On a similar note, have you ever planted any of your teas? I recently had a garden friend tell me she had used chamomile loose tea around seedlings to help prevent mold & the chamomile sprouted. Have you ever heard of this? I didn't think tea had seeds in them so I was very surprised.

Oh Angela, those packets are beautiful! I will definitely visit her shop. I love the things that you show us!
Love, Carol B.

I love growing plants from seed, but these "tea time" varieties would be even more fun!!

Spring is here and these seed packets are just the thing to inspire a gardener.Planted cup and saucer vine last year but have not seen this color.
The Earl Grey Larkspur is one that I saw at the Flower Show in Philadelphia recently. Looking forward to seeing your tea garden this year, Angela.
Thanks for sharing!

I am hoping to move into an area with a cooler climate (to where I live now) so would love to try out this.
