I found a garden planting cycle in the newspaper last week & cut it out. I live in Z8, so I know ours would be different. For Jan. & Feb., it says to sow English peas, beets, turnips, kale, kohlrabi, lettuce, mustard, & carrots.
"No I had not even heard of it...but I looked it up and it does sound like a good plant for the spot in question...evergreen...fragrant...flowers...If you try it let me know. Since zone 9 is the southern most zone it will grow wonder how it will do…"
