I have sprouts:


Sweet William

Various Dianthus

Centaura macrocephala

Rudbeckia burpeii


I have only done 23 containers (it's usually 100+) but what is there really nice and healthy.

I'm here in Columbus, where are YOU?

Around 300 tomato plants, 70 banana and other kinds of peppers, asters, zinnas, dahlia, euclyptus, bells of Ireland. I've got a bunch of other stuff I haven't gotten started yet.

my tomatoes aren't up yet, but I'm not worried. they've got plenty of time. I have over 200 containers out, and prob 20-30 have germinated.

I heard snow for easter????

I lost my calendulas and eyeball plant. Luckily, the winter sowing family sent me some eyeball, so I'm back in business.

Thus far I have only planted out dianthus. This weather is nuts. I expect the cold dips but not the prolonged March weather.

I'm in Cincinnati. 60 WS containers, most have a least a few sprouts, and quite a few ready to go in the ground. I've only planted out annual alyssum and clarkia and then that freeze hit. The alyssum is toast but a few clarkia might make it but remain questionable. After that have been reluctant to plant out but it seems summer is here again.

I want to get to the Cincinnati Flower Show this weekend so not much planting out will be done yet again.

Indiana here. Off the top of my head -- I have marigold, tomatoes, snap pea, larkspur, blanket flower, purple coneflower, black eye susans, coral bells, lobelia, globeflower, cosmos, basil,... Actually it's a lot easier for me to list what that hasn't sprouted: joe pye weed, butterfly weed, siberian iris, white penstemon, cilantro, rosemary.
