I am very new at gardening. I know I am in zone 7b. I want to have flowers blooming very soon. I have two flower beds infront of my house that get direct sunlight during the day. When I look for plants I see the bloom time. I'm confused by this. Does it mean to plant the seed (early fall, late fall) or does it mean that's when I will see results? I'm confused. I want to get seeds in the ground and see some flowers before winter or until the first frost. Please help. Thank you!
