A few flower questions
I'm growing flowers for the first time. I know that veggie plants can be transplanted up to the cotyledons...are flowers the same? I ask because a few weeks ago I sowed a few cornflower seeds in a starter pot (i think its a bit early but the seeds were purchased in Europe and given to me recently, so i thought they might be acclimated to cooler temps...) The seedlings are tall and most of them bent over.
Did they just not get enough light? Can I save them by planting them up to the cotyledons?
Are only container grown flowers thinned? How is sowing directly into beds different?
When a flower says perennial, does that mean that the plant will survive both brutal Florida summer heat and freezing temps and come back even if it looks dead?
Should annuals and perennials be grown in separate beds?
Many questions! Thanks for your time and input.
