Now, I know why my Calendulas did not sprout well. I planted them too late. I have Cleome and two kinds of Calendula sitting on my cabinet waiting for me to sow them. I guess I need to pull my heirloom tomato seeds back in the house. Thanks for the article. I missed it the first time.

I haven't had great luck with cleome in WS containers, but I've heard the way to get them going is to direct sow a patch out in your garden, where they can reseed each year.

Happy sowing!

Thanks for the tip on Cleome. I was going to WS it today. I want to plant it amongst my roses.
