I'm participating in the Summerhill co-op, and was trying to pick seeds good for winter sowing. I don't know about some of them...
Is there some way to use the WS database that's easier than what I'm doing? I seem to have to wade through all 27 pages only to discover (sometimes) that what I'm looking for isn't there. I figure I'm not using it right. Any suggestions?
This is what I've tried that I KNOW works in my area or zone:
Nigella (I ordered two kinds from the co-op)
Hibiscus (I only tried hardy types)
I had no luck with sweet peas, but I ordered some Lathyrus anyway. Only 8 seeds to a pack, so I ordered three. Gulp! With $10 worth of sweet pea seeds prior to discount, something should work! I ordered Thunbergia with the plan to direct sow in the spring. Is that best? Thunbergia vines are $20 each around here. I refuse to pay that much for an annual vine. Two years ago I had pansies blooming in the milk jugs before I figured out they'd sprouted.
Just babbling now. If you'd share your experience here, I'd sure appreciate it.
