How long from sowing to bloom?
As usual, I went into a seed buying frenzy at the beginning of January, and purchased a number of annual flowers that I am completely unfamiliar with. While the site (swallowtail seed) gives sowing/germination information, it, like most seed sites, does not tell you how long from sowing to bloom. The first time I bought Lisanthus seed, I had no idea it took 4-5 months!
Does anyone have experience with any of the following from seed? I am not sure when to get them going.
Tricolor Chrysanthemums, Mimulus (aka monkey flower), Wishbone Flower, and Clarkia.
Chrysanthemums and Clarkia they say you can direct sow, so I assume they dont need to be started especially early, but the other two I am wondering if I need to get them started?
