Answer: Even though your weather can remain nice through December, it will take your seedlings a few weeks to grow to blooming size. For this reason, I'd concentrate on those annuals that thrive in cool weather. Some suggestions for almost instant color in your new planter boxes include sowing seeds of pansies, lobelia, ornamental kale or cabbage, and primrose. Chrysanthemum starts should be available in local nurseries, too. You might even want to tuck a few spring-flowering bulbs in the planters as you're adding other plants. Good luck with your new garden!
