Sunflower Lemon Queen
Beautiful lemon-yellow bloom with chocolate centers. This one is very unique; tall plants produce many brilliant blooms.
Direct seed in desired position as sunflowers don't transplant well. Plant seed to 1 inch deep, allowing 12 - 18 inches or more between plants. Sow in full sun from 2 -3 weeks before last frost of spring until early summer. Plants require only ordinary soil and mositure, tolerate heat and some drought.
Watermelon Sugar Baby
The #1 ice box - sized melon! Early! 6 - 10 - lb. melons are great for the North and have sweet, deep red flesh.
Sow the seed one - half inch deep outoors after frost season is over and soil is warm. Soil should be rich and well ammended with compost or manure. Sow the seeds 12 - inches apart, in rows 6 feet apart. They may be started indoors from seed no more than 2 - 3 weeks prior to setting - out date and never let watermelon seedlings become root bound in a pot. Watermelon is probably ripe when the light patch on the underside has changed to pale yellow, and the tendril immediately opposite the stem from the fruit has withered.
