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.
