Default Flower Seed Starting Time

We picked out 4 different flower seed packs today. Our last average freeze is March 12th. Frost can happen up to the first week in May here. The seeds we bought are able to be started indoors 6-8 weeks before last frost, so the timetable is fitting.

Butterfly Flower (Asclepias Tuberosa) A perennial that we have been wanting to try to grow. There are a lot of butterflies here already. I think this plant will look good growing with lantanas.

Three varieties of Marigolds:

Ferry~Morse - Petite, Mixed colors. We haven't grown this variety but the picture on the package looks like Dwarf French Marigolds to me.

The other two are from Burpee - Burpee's Best Mix - The description says, "An early flowering French mixture with fully double 2.5" blooms of orange and red."

Jaguar - is pictured
