Mustard greens (also gai choy) 03 Jun, FELECIA L CADE (USA - Zone 5a climate)
Gai Choy able to be sowed in July for Fall harvest right? Do these leaves grow pretty big? I ordered Asian mustard from someone in the spring and believe I received the small Gai Choy.

Okra (also Ladyfinger, gumbo) 17 May, Chuck Celestine (USA - Zone 8b climate)
it's May 16th and I'm wanting to sow some okra seeds. Has anyone had success in zone 8b? Would love some tips, for i don't have much room so I do mostly containers, but I can make space if needed. Thanks so much Chuck Celestine

Pumpkin 12 May, Caroline (New Zealand - cool/mountain climate)
Hi my name is Caroline and I’m not from New Zealand, but I love pumpkins! I REALLY REALLY have the urge to carve a pumpkin but unfortunately they are all out of season in America. This might sound stupid but are pumpkins on the same schedule in New Zealand bc of the difference in climate? Like would I be able to get one shipped ?

Is it best to direct sow or transplant okra in 9a.
Okra (also Ladyfinger, gumbo) 09 May, Kimberly Borzillo (USA - Zone 7b climate)
direct sow....can do 2 week succession planting... okra loves hot weather and is very forgiving.

Is it too late to plant rhubarb from plants this year in my zone? The chart above says March. Or should I wait until next year? Thank you!
Coriander (also Cilantro, Chinese parsley) 21 Apr, Lisa (USA - Zone 6a climate)

Coriander (also Cilantro, Chinese parsley) 22 Apr, Liz at Gardenate (New Zealand - temperate climate)
Check using your zone 6a eg www.gardenate.com/plant/Coriander?zone=16
Chilli peppers (also Hot peppers) 20 Apr, Jim (USA - Zone 8a climate)
Just my observations. I am in zone 8a. I built my first lasagne bed in the fall of 2018. Then planted n spring of 2019. I experimented with a variety of chiles. Poblano, Thai, Cayenne longs, Pasillas, Italian sandwich, Sweet Bells, and Jalapeño. The bed got full sun, I planted closely, and harvested 472 mature chiles. Every variety produced heavily. This would seem to contradict your data, that chiles need growing room, and good air circulation. The “ stems” were more like trunks of a two year old fruit tree. Almost 2” in girth and very sturdy. I submit this data not to gloat, but for further consideration. Thank you!
Chilli peppers (also Hot peppers) 04 May, Colleen (USA - Zone 9b climate)
Hey Jim, How many plants did you plant in the bed? One of each? I'm doing a variety of chili peppers in containers this year and your comment gives me hope that two plants could fit in one 7 gallon grow bag. Thanks! Best, Colleen
Chilli peppers (also Hot peppers) 02 May, Melinda Schwab (USA - Zone 8a climate)
Thanks for sharing!! I have had huge trunks before on ours as well because we planted them in front of our hen house [bedding was tossed out in that garden area all year] and they were HUGE by October and loaded to the point of cracking a few "branches" from the weight... LOL! I think the same thing... They just like a lot of sun and nitrogen and water at least once every week or two.... Didn't seem to matter much about spacing and the closer they were the less breakage it seemed to have. :-)
Peas 18 Apr, Gene (USA - Zone 5b climate)
Best days to plant peas and also best days for potatoes
Peas 19 Apr, Liz at Gardenate (New Zealand - temperate climate)
Find your zone at the top of the page, then find the plant on the Vegetables and Herbs tab. You will find the information there.
Cucumber 18 Apr, Stephanie (USA - Zone 8a climate)
This is my first year planting in this zone as I recently moved here. I am used to planting in a much different climate. My other plants in my garden seem to be doing well. However, my cucumbers are dying. Please help!! I plant 2 foot apart. I planted next to green beans and radishes. Are they getting too much water?not enough fertilizer?
Amaranth (also Love-lies-bleeding) 16 Apr, Tanya King (USA - Zone 5b climate)
Your site says Amaranth isn't recommended to grow in Zone 5, but I've seen amaranth grow and spread on the University of Colorado Denver campus. It seems to be growing just fine as it comes back every year.
Watermelon 16 Apr, Ms Wanderful (USA - Zone 9a climate)
What are the best melons to plant in zone 9a & 9b? And when in the season. Can I plant a melon in a container?
