It’s time to stop merely dreaming about your summer vegetable garden, and start growing seedlings to plant in it. Many plants, including cabbabe, tomatoes and peppers, can be started from seeds indoors, but you need to start the process early so that the seedlings will be ready to be planted outdoors when the threat of frost has passed. Most seeds can be started 6 to 8 weeks before your last frost date.
By growing plants from seed you can save yourself some money. You also may not be able to find the plant you want at a nursery. It will take some diligence, since they will require extra care. But, growing from seed can be very rewarding.
Things you need to consider:
- When to plant
- Hardening off
