#25 – Seed Starting & Transplant Timing

by | Feb 23, 2023

Wondering how far in advance to start your seeds indoors? What should your target planting dates be for cool-season hardy annuals and warm-season tender annuals? Today, Lisa and Layne discuss the proper timing for starting your seeds and transplanting them outdoors. They cover how to determine your planting dates, how far in advance to start (which may depend on the seed starting method you are using), seeds that are fast, medium, and slow growers, and whether it is better to be too early or too late. For extra clarity, the ladies even go through some real-life examples with a calendar. Listen to the podcast, pull up a calendar, and get ready to plan your start dates!

The video version of Lisa and Layne’s conversation will be posted to The Gardener’s Workshop’s YouTube channel, where all “Seed Talk” episodes are organized into a playlist. In addition, auto-generated transcripts are available for viewing on YouTube.
