When do you start planting your garden?:

“I generally get the itch in February and satisfy it by starting a few seeds indoors, browsing catalogues for new hybrids and looking through my pictures to determine my potted flower plans for the upcoming season. Outside planting starts with carrot and beets in raised beds mid April.” – Foreverflowers

“I always hear that March 15 is “start your seedlings” day, but I find that waaaay too early. My “seedlings” are growing beyond the top of my shelves and trailing down to the floor by the time May long weekend arrives! I’ve started planting indoor seedlings the first week of April, and that seems to be perfect for most things. Then I’ll wait for mid May, and watch the weather. I might jump the gun and plant before May long, but I have sheets ready to drape over everything just in case.” – Tzulah
