We will be rolling out several small fixes mid-day today (Jan 29.) We do not anticipate any disruptions or problems, but f you spot any unexpected issues after 12 noon (PST), please report them in the designated thread in the DG Site Updates forum.
You are in Zone 5? If you sow in the fall, you need to have enough time for them to get grown enough before first frost, and mulch. If you sow in the spring, sow them as soon as the ground can be worked. Hmm the farmers Almanac indicates sowing flowerbeds on the 10th and 11th of Sept. good luck
