I have never been a gardener (my mother and grandmother were excellant ones and despaired over me for years).
We finally have a nice yard that is already landscaped, so its been easy to keep it going. But I took an old washtub, poked holes in the bottom, filled with dirt and bought a packet of wildflower seeds and planted them. Now, how often should I water this? Does it just need to be kept damp until the seeds sprout? And then what? I have it on my patio and it is going to look really cute when it has more than just dirt in it. But if nothing comes of it, I only spent 99 cents on a packet of seeds. I do hope they grow and bloom though.
