I would like to know when it's best time to plant the pumpkin seeds also sunflower seeds?? I want to grow pumpkin this year and would like to know when it's best time to plant them??? I usually start my veg planting in late March after frost pass. Sometimes I wouldput milk gallon plastic cover it to keep from frost. any feedback will be appreciate. It'll be fun for my kids and me,too! :o)
I would think late March would be fine. Sunflowers will germinate in cool soil and stand light frost. Pumpkins you can direct seed on your avarege frost date, so they will usually past your last frost date before they emerge. They can't take frost. If you start plants inside, then plan on setting out (after hardening off) on or after your last frost date. I am quite a bit cooler and direct seed on or after April 15.
I think so.. I am going to start plant in middle of March as follow gardening by the Moon. I haven't started tiller yet. The ground's too wet from raining other days ago. Now I need to dig and remove the fell baby pine tree so I can have garden there. Gotta to have lots work to do.
well, it still takes you to the same page. When you get to the link above, click on the lawn & garden tab. Then scroll down the page a bit, you will see the "Louisiana Vegetable Planting Guide" Click on that and it'll download for you. Hope this helps!
