Re: HYB:Seed planting

Glad it worked for you, Betty. I've always tried to get the seeds potted by mid-October here in Virginia. Some might be interested to know that that was also when we planted seeds in the ground in Indiana. -- Griff

Barbara mentioned this on another thread. Reminded me.

I want to avoid fall sprouts so, normally, I try to plant on Thanksgiving
Day weekend too! In order to let the soil cool.

Last year Griff stated that he plants a month or so earlier without any fall
sprouts. I decided to give it a try. Oct 29, 2005 turned out to be a
lovely day to plant seed. Since I had over 50 pots to fill, it took most of the
day. Watered every day for 5 days as is my practice. Somewhere around Xmas I
covered the pots with straw.

Thanks for the advise, Griff. It worked very well with no fall sprouts.
Better germination this spring. I no longer feel the need to suffer in the
cold to plant seed!

If you don't cross them, you can't plant them!
