Brrrrr....... down right cold!!. It was 3:30am and 35F when I peaked outside to check. We've been averaging about 45F for at least 2 weeks, but I'm still afraid to transplant any of my tender seedlings. I truly love living in these mountains, but DANG!!
OK so this a.m. I have new seedlings that were not up last evening at last check:
Morning Glory 'Star of Yelta'
Nicotiana alata (common white)
Red Trailing Carnation
Celosia 'Pink Candle'
The morning I also sowed some Zinnia 'Purple Prince' and Southern Belle Hibiscus. I nicked the Hibiscus seeds and sent them outside to do their thing. Just not sure if I nicked in the right place or too deep? When I wintersowed them in 2009, I didn't have to do anything special. BTW I read of lots of people who get blooms 1st year from spring sowed seed, but I didn't even see blooms the 2nd year. Wonder what I did wrong there?
