    Hi,


    Sorry to resurrect this old thread, but I missed last year’s Halloween event, (not being active yet), so I was wondering how early or late the dropping of Halloween plants begins.

    That's actually one of the reasons that I like Flower Game; these are some plants that I don't have to worry about having them die on me!

    I enjoy this game because I am not able to work in the garden anymore. I used to have quite the herb garden.


    But I killed off a number of house plants, including an artificial fern that I somehow caused to wither. I am glad that won’t happen to these.


    So I am starting to research life-cycles of the flowers. It will be fun.

    So, the tulips would be the first plants to bloom in the spring, along with the grape hyacinth. But the tulips usually die back by summer, but the grape hyacinth last longer. Hmmmmmm. . . . .


    What about the vegetables, that it is usually dangerous to put them in the yard until the danger of frost in the spring has passed?


    (Yes, I used to keep quite the herb garden, and usually a fair amount of vegetables.)

    I am interested in the Growing Season project.


    I am wondering as to where you would want the baseline to be for. I am from Colorado, and so we definitely have a growing/dying season, versus Hawaii where my sister is growing avocado and lemon trees year round.


    So would the seasons be based on, say, Germany, or other parts of Europe, or sections of the United States?

    I am shocked and grateful that the first three strawberry seeds gave me one of each of the variations of the wild strawberry plant.


    But I am still going to collect more of the seeds.

    YAY!! I just picked up a Wild Strawberry in the Wild garden!


    As soon as I get more empty pots, I will grab more, because I don’t know how long its season will last.

    As a former grower of herb gardens, may I suggest a few herbs.


    Rosemary has lovely purple flowers as well as needle like leaves

    Sage also has beautiful purple flowers and very pretty leaves

    Borage more purple flowers

    Feverfew has nice little daisy-like flowers

    Marshmallow has red and white flowers

    Oregano and Thyme are lovely, and come with varients


    I also think that Foxglove would be a wonderful plant with beautiful trumpet shaped flowers.


    I always loved growing Angelica, but the flowers are mostly white.


    I know you cannot do all of these, but just putting this out there for suggestions.

    Alia, if you check my signature, you will see that I have the second plant you posted. I picked that one up from the wild garden last month, so it is not apparently a breed only.

    Tapeape, thank you for your very kind offer.


    Right now I am torn between “I really want that flower“, and I want to do it myself......


    OK, I think I will come down on the side of wanting it that badly. I accept your kind offer, and then will continue to try to breed it myself, but won’t feel badly because I keep failing at it. Ha ha

    I hope that you will be able to check out the wild strawberries, as I have never seen them the entire time I have played this game. I really do want to raise some strawberries. Thanks

    Hello, I am Shadowlady.


    I found this game a year ago, and picked up a Christmas Rose then, and then forgot about it. Seeing some flowers on other peoples accounts reminded me of this site, and luckily I remembered what my screen name was. I even remembered my password after this long.


    Now after starting up again at the beginning of this year, I have a lot of flowers now. Still working on getting at least one of each, and hopefully one of each color of each flower.


    The one I am working on the most is the Bread and butter chives.

    I just went to my greenhouse, and bred a Marvel fern to a Male fern. It was successful, but since I did not have an open pot, it was dumped into the wild garden. And yes it was a Marvel fern.

    I have been looking for seeds for the wild strawberries ever since I found they existed, from looking at the regular plants screen. Unfortunately I have not seen any.


    Clicking on some grown wild strawberries on other people’s garden, the ones from way back said that the season is from July through September. Now that we are in the middle of July, I keep hoping the strawberries will start showing up.
