Luffa (also Loofah, plant sponge) 29 Aug, NANCY SMELTZER (USA - Zone 6a climate)
I HAVE SEVERAL LOOFAH PLANTS, QUITE VINY AND HEALTHY BUT NO BLOOMS. IT’S NOW LATE AUGUST. WHAT HAVE I DONE WRONG? OR IS THERE SOMETHING I CAN DO? THANKS FOR ANY HELP.
Luffa (also Loofah, plant sponge) 17 Sep, Terri (USA - Zone 8a climate)
Loofa need a long time to mature. 5 months or more. I planted mine late this year. Late May. They were full vines without flowers until late July. Now they are full of flowers and loofa. I am not sure how late you planted them but they may just not be mature. Another thing may be too much nitrogen in the soil.switch to phosphorus based to get the plants focused on flowering.
Luffa (also Loofah, plant sponge) 15 Aug, Andrea Gearllach (USA - Zone 8b climate)
Would loofah be ok to grow near rhubarb and kiwi berries?

Broccoli 14 Jun, Patricia Foster (USA - Zone 9b climate)
Here in central Florida, we grew enormous broccoli plants but they never produced anything, even after six months growing. We put the seedlings in the ground in October in a marl soil that retains moisture and also used plenty of compost and some 10-10-10. Any ideas what went wrong or what we should do to amend the soil?
Broccoli 12 Aug, Roland (USA - Zone 9b climate)
Patricia, I experienced the same last year in zone 9b. Not a single head or side shoots. After six months I pulled the plants and put them in the compost. Nothing goes to waste in my garden.
Luffa (also Loofah, plant sponge) 11 Jun, Wyndi (USA - Zone 7a climate)
I live in southern Idaho (zone 7) We have had an incredibly cold, wet spring. It is now mid June, would it still be possible to have success planting seeds now?
Luffa (also Loofah, plant sponge) 24 Jun, Linda (USA - Zone 8b climate)
Luffa need a very long growing season. It is said to need near 200 days. If you look for your first frost date then count back to today and see if you have enough days. Good luck!
Peas 08 Jun, Jessica Ipina (USA - Zone 9a climate)
I was a little confused. I got a planting reminder from the Old Farmers Almanac that it was time to plant peas June 8th, in zone 9a. Isn't it too hot?

Hi Jessica, have a look at this page and ignore the O F A advice for peas. https://www.gardenate.com/plant/Peas
Luffa (also Loofah, plant sponge) 08 Jun, Linda (USA - Zone 9a climate)
I have 3 Luffa plants potted , about 3” tall and healthy. They are ready to be put in ground. Now I am stuck. Full sun, part sun , keep wet, keep dry... central Florida on the river. Please help.
Luffa (also Loofah, plant sponge) 24 Jun, Linda (USA - Zone 8b climate)
I also have 3 luffa plants. First year growing in north Florida. I put one in full sun, one in part sun and one in complete shade. They are all growing at the same pace but with one exception: the one in full shade has zero luffa. The other two each have 5 very large ones.
Luffa (also Loofah, plant sponge) 09 Jun, Liz (New Zealand - temperate climate)
Luffa belong to the curcubit family, so you can follow advice for growing zucchini or pumpkins

Chilli peppers (also Hot peppers) 04 Apr, jim (USA - Zone 10b climate)
how long does it take for chilli seeds to start to show in a seed tray. I've put mine in almost two weeks ago and no sign of them yet.
Chilli peppers (also Hot peppers) 15 Apr, Sylvia (USA - Zone 9a climate)
Do you use a plant heat mat. It can be bought online or may be found at garden centers like Lowes or Home Depot. Peppers like heat for good propagation

They like cool weather to grow well, so April might be a bit late in your zone.
