Original Message Newbie to growing
Congratulations and welcome to the rewarding, and sometimes frustrating, world of gardening. You are not too early to plant any of these from seed. As a matter of fact, the summer annuals should not be set outdoors until the soil is warm to the touch. One thing they all have in common is that they will not do well indoors. I think it has to do with air circulation and length of daylight on the leaves, but whatever the reason, it is very difficult to grow outside plants indoors, except to get them started from seed. You will have much better luck if you follow the instructions on the seed packets and plant everything outside, once the weather allows.
