  1. I live in a warm climate – temperature now 17c daytime and rarely goes below 7c at night. I want to grow bidens golden goddess in a pot. What size pot do I need, assuming it will be a perennial, and how many seeds to the pot. Also when should I plant these outside. I can offer some protection but have no indoor facility to grow seeds. (no windowcills or heating)

    1. You can plant Bidens Golden Goddess in a pot outdoors probably end of April or in May. Any size pot will do. Keep the soil moist but not soggy. When the seedlings are big enough to handle then you can transplant them where you want them to grow.
