Hello Brian,

This is the first time i have been on the plant & seed trading forum,even though i have done plant trading.I have been wanting to start some 4 o'clocks since last year.Unfortunately i have no luck with growing anything from seed.I tried a few different things last year,4 o'clocks being one of them.I harvested seeds from a pink bush and one with yellow & pink blooms i believe are the colors.I still don't have any 4 o'clock bushes.

I am harvesting them again now.I have actually thought about just putting them out like the plant would do. *Blush* Whistling Is there something i don't know?One problem is i have very limited knowledge about growing anything by seed and another problem is i am literally limited in what i can do (partially handicapped from MS)
They come up when the plant drops them so i thought maybe if i drop them where i want them cover them lightly from birds & washing away.They will go through the cold period and grow naturally.wish me luck Rolling on the floor laughing

Honestly should i just wait for babies to come up in the spring and transplant them? Big Grin Green Grin! I would still be happy to collect any seeds from anything i can for others!!

Every time my hubby see's any kind of seeds he gets them. Lovey dubby

A green thumb comes only as a result of the mistakes you make while learning to see things from the plants point of view!!

I don't think 4 o'clock seeds like getting cold. I grow them every year from seed (going to try saving the tubers this year) and I never get volunteers. The only volunteer I ever got was from an early blooming one, and one of the seeds it dropped sprouted before the first frost. I always start mine indoors because our growing season is so short here.
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.
