I have planted a zinnia, strawberry, basil, and marigold plant…?
Question by I wasn’t asleep! I was drunk: I have planted a zinnia, strawberry, basil, and marigold plant…?
on april 25th. But only the marigold and zinnia have started to grow. The basil and strawberry have not started to sprout yet. Did I do something wrong, or do they just take longer. They are in small pots and I have then outside.
I live in San Diego, Ca

Basil is a Mediterranean plant so it will be to cold to plant outside in this country at the moment it will grow happily and much better on a window sill you can then put outside when it warms up a little at the end of May don’ cast a clout till May is out as the old saying goes it might seem nice and warm in the day but night time temps could still drop below freezing the strawberries I would have thought to be ok if plants but seeds need a little warmth
