Direct sewing perennials into the veggie garden?

Fort Dodge, IA

Can I plant seeds like coneflower, Shasta daisy, black eyed Susan's, bachelors buttons, & tidy tips daisy into my vegetable garden space in rows just like I do the veggies and have them grow well there?

If they grow at what stage could I replant them into the flower beds? Would it be this year or would I wait until next spring?

They would grow well in your vege plot.
You could probably transplant them to flower beds either early in the fall or next spring.
I once did this with bachelor buttons----they gave lots of leaves in the vege plot, but no flowers.
The vege plot was a bit too rich for them.

Thanks Caroline, I guess I'll give it a try and see what happens.
