Finally Getting to SC
Hi, folks - awhile back - a long while back, actually - I posted that I was moving to the Upstate (Greenville-Spartanburg) area of SC as soon as my house in MA sold. Fast forward a year later, and it's finally under agreement. I'm due to arrive in mid-May. I have some small pots of stuff I'll be bringing from my garden - about 3 flats worth - and 2 large bins of seeds, LOL. I've been winter sowing in MA successfully for 5 years now. When I arrive in SC, I'll be in rental property until we get another house, so am planning on doing gardening in containers.
Any thoughts/suggestions? I'd love to do some tomatoes & peppers - any particular varieties that take the heat better than others? Where we are settling is a 7b - as I'm in the Cape Cod area of MA now, it's really only one full zone warmer than what I'm used to. I know I'll have to water a lot more, especially if I'm doing container gardening. What are some good flower choices? Will I still have time to start annuals from seed as the growing season is longer?
Thanks in advance,
Kim, who is dying for a rosemary plant like the ones she saw in downtown Greenville in September (they're perennial there, arent they?)
