When should I plant Mammoth grey stripe sunflower seeds? I live in Southwest Florida and the temperature can range from 32 for a few hours during the winter with highs in the mid to Upper sixties but starting in April the temperature goes into the 90 +range. Should I plant them in October or November 4 a January crop or plant them in March for a May crop? I don't want them to burn and I don't want them to freeze. Please help.

Okra (also Ladyfinger, gumbo) 08 Feb, Kristin (USA - Zone 10b climate)
I don't think this is right. Your calendar says Okra will not grow in Miami, FL, (according to your site is 11a but USDA says 10b) But they grew and produced for me like crazy in the dead of summer. Granted I watered frequently but the heat did not faze them. And I am in Homestead, FL, 5 min from the Keys.
Okra (also Ladyfinger, gumbo) 08 Feb, Liz (New Zealand - temperate climate)
Kristin, if you check here https://www.gardenate.com/zones/#zone-US , you will find that Miami is included in both 10b and 11a. We use the USDA for our advice.
Lettuce 18 Jan, Doug (USA - Zone 5b climate)
Planting lettuce indoors and will transplant outdoors after last frost in May. Keeping some of the plants indoors and will move to larger containers before the roots bind up. My starting mix will need added organic fertilizer after the real leaves are put on and grow light intensity needs to be increased somewhat for indoor food production. If this experiment works, I may continue growing through next winter. As for my outdoor lettuce, last summer I managed to get several cuttings. This year I will be planting on the north side of pole beans so that when the beans are tall and the summer heat comes on, my hope is the shade will increase my lettuce yields for a longer period of time .
Artichokes (Globe) 17 Jan, Helen (USA - Zone 10a climate)
I live on a sand ridge on the east coast, zone 10a. Can I grow artichokes/horseradish in my sand? Will I have any better luck in pots?
Watermelon 06 Jan, khalil (USA - Zone 12a climate)

Celeriac 29 Nov, Beate (USA - Zone 8b climate)
I want to grow some Celeriac and wonder if the southern heat in the summer will affect its growth. I live in Columbus Georgia and celeriac is not known down here. Also, if I sow in January, will the frost affect it?
Celeriac 29 Dec, Donna (USA - Zone 8b climate)
Being as Celeriac is a root crop, it can easily handle Winters in Georgia, IMO. I live in Port Angeles, WA, and I grow Celeriac all year around. However, I do use about 4" of Alder wood chips. Works great at keeping everything nice and cozy. :-)
Celeriac 18 Jan, Andi (USA - Zone 8b climate)
Hi PA -Donna, I'm in Sequim!! Do you start from seed? No greenhouse here...just raised beds.
Rhubarb 28 Nov, Sandy (USA - Zone 8b climate)
I got a clump of rhubarb from my sister this summer. I have a brick planter in the front yard that had some room, so I planted it there, beside an artichoke plant. Gave it a good dose of vitamin B1, kept it well watered and it has been doing very well, looking very healthy, and, all of a sudden, it turned yellow. It started turning yellow in October. Could it be, it needs more water (I haven't been watering it much, now that it is looking so good)? Could it be the frost (we have had a few frosty mornings. Just in case it's the frost, I've been covering it at night. Thank you for any insight that can be offered.
Garlic 14 Nov, Brittney Benèa Byrd (USA - Zone 9a climate)
I live in Zone 9a. Has anyone had any luck planting garlic in zone 9a? I am going to give it my best shot - it's in my refrigerator. Been reading about vernalization. If it would cool off here for any extended length of time I hope to get my cloves planted.
