From our January 2022 newsletter.
I’m estimating that my last frost date will be June 1 (there is a super full moon on May 26), and counting back the weeks puts me at 18 weeks before the last frost as of January 22.
There are not many flowers Zone 3 gardeners can be starting right now, but here is a list of seeds you can be starting in the next two months. Most of my seed starting is actually in April- I’m trying to save myself from the urge to start things too soon (like last year), so I have every flower written down on the specific week I need to start them.
Listed from Mid December to end of February:
Mahogany Splendor Hibiscus
And in case I don’t send out a March newsletter, flowers to start in March:
Biennial Sweet William
I’ll also be starting onions from seed right away; I grew storage onions last year from seed and they have been keeping really well this winter. So more of them are on the agenda! (Copra, Patterson and Talon are good storage onions)
