HA -- Hardy Annual.
Hardy annuals can stand some frost, so sow in the open ground well before the last spring frost date, or, in warm winter areas, sow in fall.
HHA -- Half-hardy Annual.
Half-hardy annuals will survive a very light frost but are planted in the open at the last spring frost date or a little later. They can also be started indoors 6-8 weeks before the last spring frost.
TA -- Tender Annuals.
Tender annuals are warm weather plants that cannot withstand any frost and prefer warm nights. Tender annuals with long weeks to bloom (16-18+) should be started indoors 8-10 weeks before the last spring frost.
i have had evening primrose plants before, grown from seeds. they were magnificent. this year, not one seed germinated. NOT ONE!!! i am so disappointed. i've had the "primrose parties" too. they were fun. what happened? spring was wet, some snow, warm, all the other plants sprouted, summer here in Utah warm & hot like in Ohio. but no flowers. what did i do wrong?
Thank you for taking the time to submit a review. We are sorry to hear that your seeds did not germinate. There are several possibilities as to why this happened. For instance, it may have simply been a case of the seeds being overly disturbed by precipitation, which can move seeds around or cause them to become excessively covered by the growing media. This could in turn inhibit germination, as this type of seed sprouts best when exposed to light (barely covering the seeds with the growing media or vermiculite upon sowing is fine, as this still allows light to pass through). Another possibility is that the seeds were too wet, which can inhibit germination, as can excessive warmth.We would be happy to send you a replacement packet or provide you with a refund or account credit to make up for it. Please let us know!
