I still haven’t planted my direct seed crops in the garden and don’t anticipate doing so until the week of Thanksgiving because of the show circuit we are traveling. A little later than recommended and I want to, but better late than never and I have done this more often than I want to think with great success.
Fall/winter seeds that prefer to be started indoors can really be planted outdoors any time up until the ground freezes (here in southeastern
it rarely ever freezes). You can prepare your soil, mulch the bed heavily to retain some heat till your plants are ready to plant out. When your transplants are large enough to be planted out- 6-8 weeks, pull back the mulch and plant.
So if you want to grow gorgeous snapdragons, digitalis, rudbeckia or any perennial to name just a few get busy starting seeds to set out in December for a great spring!
There are always seeds to be sown!
