Stock definitely poops out here in Atlanta (zone 7b). It's not worth the 
effort for the pitiful showing it makes here.  I'm a zone warmer than you, 
Rosemary, but I have a hunch your humidity and heat will do a number 
on stock where you are, too. I don't know if it would work as a 
Fall-planted bedding may get freezing temps too soon.
