I know for those up north you won't be ready for a while. Down here in Texas we have had an extremely mild winter. I started weeding yesterday. Planted some onions. Though it might be nice to have a thread about gardening. I could use any pointers and suggestions. I plant tomatoes and peppers every year. My Mexican Oregano and Rosemary have wintered very well this year. I am not a master gardener at all. But I have found you cannot kill Rosemary, Oregano, or Chives -- even if you try. I usually have good luck with tomatoes - but this year I am going to try to start some from seed. I have a lot of luck with Basil, but every year I my Cilantro dwindles to nothing very quickly. For flowers I love Morning Glories -- another plant suited for dummies like me. I haven't had much luck with flowers the past couple of years. My front yard is pretty shady. I usually plant impatients but the last couple of years I haven't wanted to mess with them. So my flower beds have been bare except for weeds. I'm thinking of planting Caladiums. And for the sunny backyard -- Lantana and Plumbago.
