Cindy, if you have enough seed, put some out now and save a few for backup.  I've done that a lot.

Cindy, if it was me, I'd wait until *after* last frost as they really do like warm temps.  That way if any early birds sprout and then you DO get a frost, they won't get zapped.  But I'm pretty conservative that way, so if you're a gambler, go for it.  :)  The seeds survive frost okay, but the seedlings don't.  Let us know what you decide to do and how it works out.  I do love morning glories too!

If it snows on St. Pat's Day, I've a feelin' it'll be a bit O' the green variety.

Well it's a party here too,but we don't dye the rivers, everyone just gets "plastered"..LOL! If it snowed on Paddy's day...everyone would just go to the pub and stay there till it thawed! LOL!

I don't think people here would stop even if we didn't have the resources, its one of the major party/drinking holidays here. When we were there for St. Pats day in '03 I was in shock because of the difference between a real Irish celebration and the Chicago/Illinois version. People thought I was crazy when I told them they dye the river green and drink green beer and have custom made floats and if you don't wear green you get attitude. So snow won't stop anyone here.

Whenever we get snow here, the whole place comes to a standstill. We don't have the resources to cope!

Comment by Robin (N.IL zone 5) on February 26, 2012 at 1:34pm

Here there are always plans for a snowstorm on St. Pats day. But it doesn't stop anyone from being crazy.

Comment by Catherine Cronin (Ireland) on February 26, 2012 at 1:28pm

No, we do not take weather lightly here, anything could still happen with the way it went for the last 2 years! This year so far it has been too mild for comfort!

Comment by Robin (N.IL zone 5) on February 26, 2012 at 1:23pm

I didn't hink it snowed over there for St. Pats week. Aren't you in the clear already?

"Elizabeth, I use chicken manure "tea" to keep it so green and the bugs don't like it either. About every 3 weeks seems to be enough."

"It is good to find out a plants real name, so many have the same common names. The common names change depending on what country you live in too. So when you like something that has been posted, its still hard to find."
