February’s a great month to get your seeds for this year’s crop of annual flowers. Buy now and avoid the last minute rush, because by May 15th, our last official frost date, a lot of stores will have run out of the highest-demand seeds.
Our number #1 best-selling annual flower seed? Blue-flowered morning glories (Ipomoea purpurea ‘Clarke’s Heavenly Blue’), followed closely by sunflowers (Helianthus annuus).
If you have a greenhouse, fluorescent light plant-growing units, or a very sunny sunroom, late February isn’t too early to start seeds of begonias, petunias, pansies, violas, lobelias, and snapdragons, which take a long time to mature to blooming size.
We’ll have plenty of lovely annuals for sale in four-packs starting in March.
