Flower Seeds to Sow in Fall

Flower Seeds to Sow in Fall

If you have any of these seeds on the list below give this a try.  You may need to do a little additional research to find the best time to sow in your area for a particular plant.  Depending on how cold your winters are, direct sowing could be accomplished from mid-summer to 8 weeks before your last frost.   For example, here in our Zone 7, late summer sowings would include biennials like foxglove and and Canterbury bells.  Hollyhocks and bachelor buttons can be sown from August through November, and larkspur, nigella, and poppies prefer sowing after the first frost.


Seeds That Won't Mind Being Left Out in the Cold

Seeds That Won't Mind Being Left Out in the Cold

Posted on Sep 01, 2021 | by KK

Thinking back over my gardening this past season, I remembered some seeds I bought for spring that never quite made it out of the pack. Ok, ok, not quite means not at all—they were tucked carefully away while awaiting the grow light I also purchased, which sits still unused as well. Life happened, things got busy, and……….there you have it. I know I can’t be the only one—I’ve seen friends with boxes full of seeds and plenty of good intentions. And then I remembered that just because I bought them for spring doesn’t mean I can’t use some now. There are many perennials and even some annuals that can be sown in the fall. Even better, some can be direct sown in the garden with a minimum of preparation. I suppose that means I won’t crack the box for that grow light open until late winter (hopefully the coming one).
