Flowers and a seed packet pattern...

I have tons on cleome or spider plants on my property. They reseed themselves every year.

The seed pods explode and scatter everywhere...or you can gather them and plant them where you really want them. You can mix the seeds or isolate them according to flower color.

Click on the image below and get a full-size image with  two (2) seed packets per sheet. No need to use card stock ~ inkjet paper is fine. I love to gather and save seeds. These seed packages make nice stocking stuffers and Christmas card inserts for your gardening friends. Nice way to start a friendship garden. Enjoy and share!

I love cleomes! Mine are more purple in color and give off "beaucoup" seeds as well. Many thanks for the seed packet graphic. I shall print out immediately as I am always sharing seeds with others.

I had Cleome in my flower garden a few years ago, and they re-seeded for a few seasons, but for the last two summers, I have not had any.
Seeing your photos, and reading this today, I need to remember to buy seeds this winter for next summer. They are lovely and nothing can kill then, but they ARE awfully stinky and *ouch*--some of those spiky things hurt, I remember!

Dear gal friday...I don't mind the musky smell or the thorns. I just love having something that makes such a grand showing and thrives on neglect. Cleomes are deer and drought resistant too. What could be better? ♥Rosemary

What is the font on your seed packets, it's so vintage chic!

I am disappointed. I love the seed packet design but in trying to follow your directions to print them out, I got tiny packet pics with the majority of the page all black and gray ink. ( expensive :( ink wasted) I had to turn the printer off to get it to stop as it was starting on the third pg. I tried copying the image which didn't work. I did use print preview and did tell it only one copy. No idea why it was printing more than one. Are these just not available to non-blog followers? I found it on Pinterest. If there is any info you can give me so I can print your seed packets I would love it. And your blog is great. I just can't follow blogs. Too much, too little time. Have a lovely day.

maureen magovern -- I can't get them to print on my Mac. Haven't tried on my PC up in the attic.
Sorry. Wish I could help. Blogger keeps changing things. I think you might have to save the image to your computer and print from there.
