"Increase, multiply and fill the earth"

Those of you who have been reading my posts would remember the one I posted about a lone marigold seed

http://www.personapaper.com/article/15540-the-lone-marigold-seed

I took care of this species and now I have its fourth generation blooming in my garden. Now that I am determined to get back to seasonal flowers this is how I intend doing it and that is to preserve the seeds as buying them online does not give any guarantee that they will germinate. I had ordered quite a number of different types but hardly any gave me the desired results.

The quote "Increase, multiply and fill the earth" to me is not human population but flora and fauna :smile:

I am happy to see your post about the Marigolds thriving.Of course the title was a little misleading.Real glad to see the photo of the beautiful flowers.(I consider even the word Marigold to be beautiful.)

I had a debate on the title the other day. I told everyone that God did not want us to fill the earth indiscriminately with over population but fill it with love, flora and fauns emoticon :smile:

That is one flower I have trouble getting started from seed. All the others work but not that one for me.

It's a lot of work gathering your own seeds t plant bu t it has obviously been worthwhile for you. Now the marigold is not lonely.

If the seeds are potent I have no problem with any seeds. Sometimes it is not the season for planting and that is when I get the worst hit.

I will preserve the seeds that I will get from this plant emoticon :smile:
