I have a cottage style circle garden. I try to remember to look for selfseeding annuals and perennials each spring when I weed my flower bed. Many of the purple and white annuals you see above the gaillardia were pulled up as weeds before a few of them grew tall enough for me to remember that they were little flowers- fortunately it was a great year and many survived. In my initial enthusiasm when I started my gardens, all my gardens were seeding gardens. I soon realized that even using weed preventers I could not have a life beyond gardening if did not mulch most of my gardens.
I hate to throw seedlings into the mulch pile, so many of my other gardens were inpired by finding a place for seedlings from my circle garden. Most years I end up with a lot more coreopsis than the year before, but this winter I had a net loss of coreopsis. On the other hand, my purple liatris and cushion spurge multiplied profusely.
