ANNUALS TOLERANT OF COOL WEATHER


Plant after danger of heavy frost is over in the spring, except sweet peas, which should be planted just as soon as the soil is workable. Some varieties can also be sown, with risk, late in fall, just before the ground freezes, so seed willnot germinate until spring. In the warmer areas of Arizona, plant in fall.
