Just purchased Morning Glory,Sunflower,Nasturtium& Wildflower seed packets - can these be planted outside & if so when - I live in Rhode Island or do I have to start indoors?
Will a Forsynthia tree do well in partial shade on an embankment?

You can sow your seeds directly oudoors. Your average last frost is about the third week of April. Wait another week just to make sure and then plant your seeds.

Forsythia grows and flowers best in full sunshine. It will grow in part shade but won't flower as profusely as if it were in full sunshine.
