What flower seeds are you direct sowing now?

pippi21(Z7 Silver Spring, Md.)November 12, 2010

I just planted some larkspurs and it's such a beautiful day, thought I'd direct sow some others. Here's what seeds I have. Which can I direct sow now?

Persian Daisy(Robinson's Crimsom)


Candytuft(Dwarf Fairy)

California Poppy(Mission Bells)

Portulaca(Moss Rose)

Cherry Brandy Rudbeckia

Lupin(Regalis Morello Cherry)

Alyssum(Carpet of Snow)

Rudbeckia(Prairie Sun)

Globe Aramanth(Purple)

Candytuft(Hyacinth flowered)

Alyssum(Rosie O'Day)

Forget-me-not(Blue Bird)

Liatris(seeds taken from my plants this summer)

Lobelia Cardinallis(Red flowered)

Malva Zebrina

I am transplanting my beautiful snapdragons. I dug up the entire plant and shooks all the dirt off the roots, and have cut the tangled roots apart, and have replanted them. I have also taken cuttings, and dipped into rootone and planted in 4 inch pots. I guess I should bring them inside for the winter? Or just direct plant them now?

Any other seeds can be planted now to insure spring/summer blooms? What about BES or purple coneflower?

California Poppies, alyssum (will not survive a hard freeze, but only do well in my area during the cooler times of the year), and forget me nots. These are all cool weather flowers that are typically recommended for this time of year. You could add Shirley Poppies and Breadseed Poppies to this list too.
