Cotton

(8 varieties to choose from)

 

It is best for northern gardeners to treat this like peppers by starting them inside and transplanting them in the garden.  I keep the later season types in flower pots in front of buildings for decoration.  They make a showy plant both in flowers and foliage.  Then when the bolls pop open they are quite colorful. Believe it or not we had beautiful looking transplants in our plots this year and the rabbit would not leave them alone. I don’t think they were eating them but they kept nibbling and we got no seed production this year. We are thankful to our friends Pam and Edmund Brown for getting some new ones to list.
