    Sounds great! If it's too late for this season (not likely), they should come back from seed next year on time.
    How much did you buy and how much land do you have for planting?

    I bought them off ebay. I bought 2 packs of seeds and each packet contains 1,000+ seeds. I am waiting for them to come in the mail. Totally forgot about the weather and planting times but as Omie said... I am not going to read the label LOL

    We have half an acre of land and I have a flower garden that only has 1 butterfly bush... guess its not really a flower garden now is it?

    I just planted a bunch of wildflower and other flower seeds yesterday out in the bee yard and was more concerned about being too early. I always like to wait until the ground temp is consistently 50 degrees but I wanted to get them in and move on to other things. I won't be placing my veggies in the garden until May, mother's day week or so. We have had frost the last two nights here in Indiana and we are significantly more south of you all there...

    Just got the seeds in the mail today. Threw them in the back patio area that has nothing but dirt. Hopefully mother nature will get these bad boys to grow. tonight and tomorrow we are supposed to get rain
