I just LOVE starting plants, bushes and trees from seeds :) It is mesmerizing observing a tiny seed turning into a large plant :)
One doesn't have to wait for the Tomato season to start planting seeds :) One can start already in January with cold stratification and/or scarification of various bush and tree seeds.

The maple seeds I collected from outdoors. They were stratified naturally during the winter.
Soon to transplant them into individual pots :)
Denmark is a country with very little forest. Only 11% of this country is covered in forests. This is way too little to support wild life in my opinion. The whole country is covered in mono-crop fields which are no more but deserts for insect life. If insects dont thrive birds dont thrive etc ... its a chain of life.
So I think we, the people, can do our small part in bettering this ecosystem by creating small wild life friendly zones :) My plan is to start planting lots of flowering bushes and trees around my locality. I even got the permission from one of my neighbors to plant trees and bushes on his land :)
