Tomato 27 Aug, Anthony Jennings (USA - Zone 13b climate)
Last year I planted cherry tomatoes from seedlings in January. I saved some seeds. When and how should I plant the seeds to develop seedlings for the coming year and how do I plant the seeds?
Tomato 01 Sep, (USA - Zone 6b climate)
Plant in a fine potting mix or similar soil (light and free draining) or a mixture of soil and potting mix about 1/4
Sweet Potato (also Kumara) 27 Aug, Kirk McCoy (USA - Zone 10a climate)
If your sweet potatoes wont sprout it is because commercial growers spray them with a anti sprouting chemical. It can be removed buy giving your sweet potatoes a ascorbic acid bath for 15 minutes then rinsing. I use 2 tsp in a half gallon of water. you could also use crushed vitamin C pills.

Watermelon 21 Aug, Sandra Carlton (USA - Zone 8b climate)
I have watermelon plants all over the garden lots of blooms but no fruit yet, they were planted mid July. In zone 8
Watermelon 23 Aug, Rosemary McElroy (USA - Zone 10a climate)
I wouldn’t worry unless the blooms drop. Did you plant them as plants or seeds?
Garlic 17 Aug, william (USA - Zone 8a climate)
I am located in the Marshville, NC area. I have read varying articles about when to plant. I'm on the 7b/8a cusp. Some articles have said that I can plant as early as October or as last as January. More specific advice would be much appreciated.
Garlic 01 Sep, Melinda Schwab (USA - Zone 8a climate)
We always prepare our garlic beds in late September and the first week of October plant our garlic and have had great luck with this. Best of luck with yours this year! Hope this helps. ~Melinda
Garlic 29 Aug, (USA - Zone 7b climate)
It has a bit different times for 7b to 8a - you work out what is the best. Read and google about growing it.
Beetroot (also Beets) 14 Aug, Jill (USA - Zone 9a climate)
what is the best type of beetroot to plant in zone 9a?
Beetroot (also Beets) 29 Aug, (USA - Zone 7b climate)
There is no best type for any region. Just try a variety or two.
Luffa (also Loofah, plant sponge) 13 Aug, Faye Johnson (USA - Zone 4a climate)
How can I get seeds from my Lofa plant to start new ones for next year?
Luffa (also Loofah, plant sponge) 29 Aug, anon (USA - Zone 7b climate)
Let the fruit dry right out then collect the seeds.
Sweet corn (also corn,maize) 10 Aug, Saeed & Amina Hashmi (USA - Zone 10b climate)
can i grow corn in planters?If, yes any recommendation on planter size and number of corn seed per planter. I have very small area in backyard with very sandy soil and nothing grows there easily.
Sweet corn (also corn,maize) 29 Aug, anon (USA - Zone 7b climate)
Try and buy some soil or find free or cheap soil and improve your soil with manures and compost.
Tomato 09 Aug, Lonnie quick (USA - Zone 9a climate)
Plants are growing great but not too many tomatoes are setting. Any ideas? it has been a 100 degrees (37C) almost every day. I water every day with drip about 1 1/2 gallons per plant thank you
Tomato 13 Aug, Martha (USA - Zone 9b climate)
Hi Lonnie, Tomatoes really don't set fruit above 85 degrees or so. If you keep it going though it should start to produce for you this fall.
Watermelon 07 Aug, Sandra Carlton (USA - Zone 8b climate)
How long does it take for watermelons planted in mid July in zone 8 to make watermelons?
Watermelon 09 Aug, Anon (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
The guide here says plant Mar April and you want to plant mid July. You will reduce your chances of producing good watermelons by planting out of the recommended guide. Yes it is only a guide here and your local weather pattern will have a big bearing on what kind of melon you produce. General rule of thumb is you plant early spring and then pick early summer for the best melons where I live - Queensland Australia. Read up or watch videos about growing and when to pick melons. It is weeks between the melon forming and being ready to pick.
Watermelon 09 Aug, Liz (New Zealand - temperate climate)
It will take approximately 12-17 weeks
Sunflower 02 Aug, Renee (USA - Zone 6a climate)

Spinach (also English spinach) 06 Aug, Anon (USA - Zone 6a climate)
Go by the guide here.
Sage (also Common Sage) 27 Jul, Georgia (USA - Zone 7b climate)
Is sage a biannual plant. After my big plant bloomed it died.
Sage (also Common Sage) 09 Aug, Anon (USA - Zone 8a climate)
I just read on-line, sage in cool weather is a perennial and in hot humid weather treat as an annual.
Sunflower 06 Jul, Tracey (USA - Zone 9b climate)
I’m new at this and just picked a 6ft sunflower roots and all in Texas and I’m going to replant in Arizona Zone9B. How often do they have to be watered?
Sunflower 10 Jul, Anon (USA - Zone 11b climate)
The longer you leave to transplant something the harder it is to have it survive. The roots can not take up enough water to keep a full grown plant a live. In zone 9b you should have harvested the sunflower by now. You transplant when plants are young 2-6 new leaf stage
Sunflower 07 Jul, Liz (New Zealand - temperate climate)
If they survive the move and don't have too much root damage, then water every two to three days. to keep the roots damp but not swamped.
