Well today in my pots I'm starting to see life appear above the soil now! I'm happy to say this is not even the beginning! Since these pots I have going currently are just going to the front for show-off Enjoyment!

I still will not be planting my sunflowers in my garden just yet. Not until another 5 weeks?
I plant to start sowing seeds in my little bio-dome by march 12th or so. So they will be ready to be planted on The FIRST DAY OF spring as a celebration!

Thank you Penny!!

_____________

Just wanted to show everyone once again a small little update on my currently sprouting sunflowers!!
They are Paul Bunyans which will be planted in the front side of my house. I think I will plant these on Monday morning...
Aren't they beautiful!!??

More sprout showed up today!? Which is odd, because the high was only 58 degrees with partly to mostly cloudy skies.

NOTICE:
MICHAEL needs YOUR Help! eek
My Geranium seems to be dying and at a raceful rate!!
I need some advice. Should I cut it to the bottom now so new sprouts will occur? Because I'm starting to see mold show. Additionally the stems are starting to get soft and squishy. The bottom seems to be still rough. should I just cut it to were it seems to be alive?
Pictures....

Well hello there all!

I got an update to share with all!

I took these pictures around 7 in the morning as I was ready to plant. I had over 12 seedlings ready to be planted in the ground.
Here are the photos.
My sunflowers are looking very healthy!

Your sunflower sprouts look great..very healthy!!! This is going to be my first year growing sunflowers, I have chosen Velvet Queen, it says on the package to sow the seed 1/2 inch deep. How deep did you plant your seeds? How many days did it take for yours to germinate (sprout)? How soon should I start them? My plant out date (frost free) is not until around May 1st.

sibyl - Yes, I will be able to view them through my window and of course my moms window too!
First window is my window. Second is my mother's.


comfrey - Thank you! Those Velvet sunflowers are wonderful!
I can't wait to see what you can do!
This will be my first year growing Velvet Sunflowers as well! Thanks to Rite2u ! ! I wonder where she is??? ters

I planted mines in pots at 1/2 deep, same as you. It only took my sprouts about a week!
Since you may still be getting some freezing, I guess I'd wait... Isn't your growing season longer than mines??
My end date of frost is March 25th...

Penny - Yes it surely will be! Thanks!!

Here are my sprouts in the front, Just wanted to show everyone.

Your seedlings look great Michael!!!!

Yes my end of frost is April 30, but I wait until May 1st to plant...So I should start my seeds about a week or so before I want to plant them out???

This is going to be fun, since several people are growing Velvet Queen, I hope they do well for me. I am planting mine on the inside of the garden along the fence.

Confrey - Thanks!! I'm excited !
Yes, you can do that. Just like what i will be doing. I plan on planting all my sunflowers seedlings in my garden right around March 25th. Doing so I am going to start a week ahead and plant them in pots. You can do the same and get ready and and enjoy as they pop their heads out.

This will be a fun year! Please do post your pictures when they come available!!

Triss - Exciting??....I need to show you my garden. I got common sunflowers sprouting everywhere already!!! It's so much fun to see how spring is NEAR!!
My grass is turning greening as you can see!
