|Taking a page from Danita on videos, I thought it might be interesting to have a thread on gardening articles about gardening in the southeast. This one is actually more for the mid-south so if anyone has any articles more closely related to being a little further south that would be great. I know some don't care much for links and prefer more of actual personal experience articles, but I do hope there is room for both in this forum. I personally love links that lead me to relevant info. I feel this is a good introductory article to sort of give a time table for the entire year, it will just have to be adjusted for your particular area a little. In my zone 8b garden I would adjust this schedule by a full month.|
Dave has a tool here on ATP over in the Goodies section that is a great aid to when to plant things by zip code.

|Hi, Larry of Daylilies! I'm really closer to southwest than southeast, but no matter. I'm with you on the links. The first one is helpful to me, but I wish the second one included flower varieties!|

|I have always found it much harder to find charts, graphs, lists etc. with flower planting dates and much easier to find vegetable planting dates. Generally I plant annuals in the spring and then till it gets too hot, then again when it cools down a bit. Perennials I plant almost anytime the weather is not too extreme.|
Vegetables seem to require a much more demanding specific schedule in general due to harvesting and maturity requirements.
