February not to be trusted when it comes to gardening

February in the Lowcountry is a planting month for many vegetables and spring flowers that we grow from seed, both indoors and out. Finding room in the house this year for more plants is going to be a problem. The sunny windowsills and tabletops are filled with potted plants brought inside to escape January's icy blasts. When it comes to weather, February is not to be trusted. I shall leave the geraniums, begonias, bonsai and herbs inside, where they're crowded but safe. I'll wait to start seeds of spring peas and nasturtiums.
