Spring Planting Guide

For the earliest spring garden, start your seeds when winter is still hanging around.

If you are starting seeds inside, you should allow four to six weeks before the planting-out schedule below, which is based on your frost-free date. (If you don't know your frost-free date, you can find it here.) The seeds that should be started indoors: Artichoke; Basil, Broccoli, Cabbage, Cauliflower, Celery, Eggplant, Parsley, Peppers, and Tomatoes. Of course, you can start virtually everything indoors if you want to get a head start, so just time your seed starting so your plants are at least four weeks old when it's time to plant them outside. You can learn more about seed-starting here.

Other seeds can be planted directly into the garden. Click on each vegetable name to see the complete selection of varieties we offer.
