What will bloom from seed quickly?
I was too occupied with a family illness to plant my annuals under lights a couple months ago. It's been a long time since I've been without my own plants! Usually have begonias, petunias, certain zinnias, vincas, impatiens (are they still alive this year????) and lots of of little this-and-that stuff I grow for fun to try out. You know, new colors, flowers I've never tried, stuff like that.
I want to buy as little as possible from the stores, but also still want the sun and partial-sun beds, as well as some pots, to look good while not waiting too long into summer. So I know I'll be buying a lot of 6-packs we shouldn't, but will to feed our souls. ;)
But are there any seeds that will still bloom relatively quickly if planted when it gets a bit warmer? No matter how "common!" I remember my beginning plants, all planted in the soil from seed, were glorious to me. I knew all about them 40 years ago, but time, experience and most of all technology have changed what I've retained!!!!
And I welcome any suggestions of inexpensive 6-packs (or whatever) to buy to make the garden at least colorful and full. And also where to buy them. I live near Osage Beach, MO.
Are the Home Depot/Lowes/Menards packs any good?
Oh, how I hope to get my usual planting life back next year! :D
Happy Spring, everyone. It was 70 here today, and sunny, and I was wild with happiness. Wishing the same for you.
