How soon can I start direct sowing flower seeds in the garden?

By Keith Funk

A:  Seed tender annuals like marigolds, zinnias, and cosmos directly into the garden by mid-May.  Most all annual transplants and bulbs can be set out by mid-May.  Impatiens, begonias, cannas and other warm loving annuals will prefer you wait until the soil is warm and night temperatures are above 50F. before planting.

Keith Funk is handling our Q & A this year. You may have visited one of Keith’s Denver area gardens on a tour or know him from his years at Echter’s and now at Nick’s Garden Center. For 30 years he’s been heard every Saturday morning from 7-9 with fellow Wise Guy, Jim Borland, on the Garden Wise Radio Show on Legends 810AM.
