Ornamental Annuals Seeding and Transplanting Chart

Do you have projects in your life that end up being placed on the spice rack instead of the back or front burner? If they're on the spice rack that means you have good intentions of getting to them sooner rather than never. At least that's what we tell ourselves. The chart below is the second of five planting charts that have been on my spice rack to do list since 2014 when I started this blog. My goal is to complete a seeding and transplant timing chart for ornamental annuals, vegetables, perennials, fruits and herbs for this area. The vegetable chart was finished a couple of years ago - I'll post that again soon, the season is nigh. Below is the completed ornamental annual chart.

No doubt books, magazines or websites already have this information well cataloged for all to see. But I couldn't find one that suited me (and hopefully you) and even if I had, it was informative and pleasant to read about so many plants and their perks. Many of these I have not grown, maybe in this lifetime. 

Keep in mind that these lists will not include every plant known to man and dog. And because I often suffer from "oh I see an error or a friend points out an error, or maybe I should add some more plants" syndrome, no doubt I'll revise it along the way. It is ready for public viewing with lots of help from seed catalogs that I received in the mail and online. I thank them generously - please search for the seeds you'd like to grow on their websites or in local garden centers. The seed companies are listed below the document. Be sure to read all the seed packet instructions and follow the suggested last spring frost date of May 15th along the Front Range.
