transplant v. direct seed
This year is a new venture in flowers for me. I've piddled around in flower beds, and that's about it. This is our 3rd year growing vegetables for market and I'm wanting to experiment w/ cuts and drying flowers for wreaths.
I look in the archives and want to grow everything, but realistically, I know I can't grow a huge variety of things and keep up with it all. This is truly a year for experimentation and if I get to cut a few and take to market, all the better!
I'm getting a late start w/ the flowers, as all of my time seems to have been taken up w/ getting the spring veggies going. However, I'm wondering if any of these flowers are recommended transplanting v. direct seeding or vice versa. Also, is it too late to start any of these indoors?
Do most of you growers succession plant all summer?? Just trying to get a feel for what I need to keep in flats ready to replant. Thanks for any input and advice.....
