Question: What kinds of annuals can I start from seeds sown directly into the garden?

Answer: That’s really risky, primarily because of the cost of the seeds and all of the insects and diseases that are waiting out there to take their toll on the young plants. However, some of the fast-growing, large-seeded plants can be sown directly into the ground. Included: zinnias, marigolds, cleome, celosia, sweet peas, larkspur, hollyhocks, amaranthus, gomphrenas, sunflowers, morning glories, California poppies, nasturtiums, moss rose, and, of course, wildflowers.
