I just couldn’t resist. Yes, it’s a silly thing but… (seriously folks) we’ve not had a hard frost in several weeks. And yes, it’s April 25 and our regular last frost date is somewhere about 3 weeks in the future.
But I just couldn’t resist.
And I have 249 petunias remaining under the grow-lights in the basement so what’s the worst thing that could happen? I’d lose this (albeit a brave and taking-one-for-the-team) petunia.
I’ve never planted an annual this early in our USDA zone 4 garden but there’s always a first time for everything. It’s planted in the growing zone on top of the dry stone wall surrounding our front gardens.
I’ll keep you up-to-date on Peter (the early planted) Petunia.
And for the record, nope I never even hardened the poor thing off.
