Starting Seeds
To plan the best time to start seedlings indoors in spring you need to know the approximate date of the average last spring frost in your area. (average last frost free date by zip code: http://davesgarden.com/guides/freeze-frost-dates/). Count back from that date the number of weeks indicated below to determine the appropriate starting date for various crops. An asterisk (*) indicates a cold-hardy plant that can be set out 4 to 6 weeks before the last frost.
• 12 to 14 weeks: onions*, leeks*, chives*, pansies*, impatiens, and coleus
• 8 to 12 weeks: peppers, lettuce*, cabbage-family crops*, petunias, snapdragons*, alyssum*, and other hardy annual flowers
• 6 to 8 weeks: eggplants, tomatoes
• 5 to 6 weeks: zinnias, cockscombs (Celosia spp.), marigolds, other tender annuals
• 2 to 4 weeks: cucumbers, melons, okra, pumpkins, squash
