Annuals and perennials
Days to Emerge:
When to sow outside: RECOMMENDED. 1 to 2 weeks before the average last spring frost. A second option: sow half the seed 4 weeks before the average last frost (hoping the last frost is earlier than usual) and sow the second half a week or two after the average last frost (just to be safe).
When to start inside: Not recommended.
Special sowing instructions: Scatter seed and rake in lightly to a depth of 1/4". Be sure seeds are covered so that hungry birds can’t see them, and pluck them up before they have a chance to sprout.
