    Re: “Spring Is Here!
    Hi - the seeds do the best but I am too impatient to wait for them to grow. :) Some of my most successful zinnias were volunteers!! I also only buy 4" plants and larger as the jumbo or six pack root systems are too small to have a great success rate in our heated soils.

    I had the wrong link for a sample thermometer. Here is another example - but there are many to choose from. http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.js…

    Good for you - bringing plants back from the almost dead category that is!! Sorry - no handbook available. I bet you have figured most of the low costs ways to plant yourself! Shopping yard sales and getting cuttings, seeds, etc from friends is certainly the way to work on a budget.

    Well- when I wrote this the forecast was great! So if you are in a cold area of Tucson and surrounding communities, let this storm front pass through before planting. April 21st sounds good to me!! (or May...)

    I have not had much luck with planting Texas Rangers in pots. I don't think they get enough root room for the plant. But in the landscape, I totally agree with you!
