Thinking about starting your outdoor garden plants? The timing for starting your garden plants for spring will vary depending on your location and the specific plants you want to grow. In general, the ideal time to start seeds indoors is around 6 to 8 weeks before the last frost date in your area. This will give your plants enough time to grow and develop before they are ready to be transplanted outside. For example, if your last frost date is May 15th, you should start your seeds indoors around the beginning of April. It's important to keep in mind that some plants, like tomatoes and peppers, are sensitive to cold temperatures and should not be transplanted until all danger of frost has passed. You can also start some plants directly in the ground outside, such as root vegetables, peas, lettuce, and broccoli. These plants can be planted as soon as the soil can be worked and the weather is mild. It's important to pay attention to the specific needs of the plants you are growing and consult gardening guides and experts for recommendations on when is the best time to start them in your area.
