Be Ready: Prime Time To Plant Seeds
The prime time to plant seeds can vary depending on the type of plant and your location. However, as a general rule, the best time to plant seeds is in the spring when the soil has warmed up and the danger of frost has passed.
For warm-season vegetables such as tomatoes, peppers, and cucumbers, you can start seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last expected frost date in your area. This will give the seedlings time to mature before transplanting them outdoors.
For cool-season crops such as lettuce, spinach, and peas, you can plant the seeds directly in the garden as soon as the soil can be worked in the spring. These crops can also be planted in the fall for a second harvest.
It's important to check the seed packet for specific planting instructions for each plant species. The packet will usually indicate the recommended planting time, as well as the depth and spacing requirements for the seeds.
