Castor Beans, Hardy Hibiscus, Canna?

April 22, 2018

I am new to wintersowing and just started April 11th. Already got my first alyssum seedlings! Anyone have experience with Castor Bean, Hardy Hibiscus, Canna and is now an ok time to start them in jugs? I've done 18 jugs of traditional flowers ( rose campion, scarlet flax, zinnias, etc). Now I'm looking into tropicals as well. I'm in Zone 5/6 lots of deer/rabbits and clay soil. Thanks for any help!

    I've never tried wintersowing castor beans. I've only direct-sown. I would think it would be a great idea. Post some pictures as they grow! Heidi

    I'm in zone 5b and I winter sowed hyacinth bean earlier this month. It just germinated last week so I'm hoping it will do well.
