Ever wondered when to sow seeds indoors so that you’ll have starts available when it’s time to transplant them outdoors? Check out this chart (which we created for 2012, but which is generally fairly accurate year-to-year!).

This is designed to give you a timeline to follow, but remember: plants can and will grow outside of these specific dates, if conditions are right. So, use it as a starting point to develop your judgment about what plants like and when they’re likely to get what they like. And expect the unexpected…within reason!
