I recently purchased the flower seeding mix in the bag. Is it possible to plant this in the Fall? It states on the package that Spring is the best time, but I would like to try to get a head start for the Spring.We have not had a freeze yet,as of 10/1/00.Please advise if this can be done at this time.If not then I will wait until the Spring.

Unfortunately, it is really late in the season to try this. The annuals would not survive the winter and the perennials might be so small and ill established that they would frost heave out of the ground over the winter. Planting in spring would probably be a better bet.
