First time flower winter sower
OK, so I've finally gottn the hang of veggies, and partial success with herbs. Now I'm ready to tackle FLOWERS.
I"m in 5b, and I 've gotten seed packets for my area, with a variety of heights and colors. But I'm overwhelmed ( last counts was about 24 varietes), is it easier to plan with those in an excel format? Other than the basics: sun/shade, height, color what else should I track to make planning where to put all these easier?
And my seed packets don't all show bloom time, how important is that?
This is for a larger (to me) east/northeast corner front bed on a corner lot, so I wanna get it close the first time.
It's been lying fallow for 2 years, only pulling weeds out. I'm amending this spring--so how deep should I put the compost now? Can I just toss n till like my veggies?
Thinking about potting up another batch this weekend, gosh my deck is getting full, lol
