Best Planting Dates for Transplants (by Region)
Here are the 2013 best planting dates for transplants (not seeds). Click YOUR region on the map below to see planting dates and Moon-favorable dates.

NOTE: This tool is NOT for sowing seeds. It's for vegetables and fruit that you typically purchase as plants from a garden center (or grow in your greenhouse) and then transplant outdoors in the ground. For seeds, click to see our "Best Planting Dates for Seeds" chart.

Hmmmm.... this is actually a really nice little tool. 1 thing though after looking at this.... if you're gardening in Region 3 or north or west of that.... I'd be careful because it's looking to me like they're providing a span that's representative of the "old" last frost dates and the "new" last frost dates based on weather station data collected up until the year 2000. If it were me.... and I was transplanting say a broccoli seedling that they're recommedning we stick in the ground anytime May 15th to the 31st... I'd hold off till the 31st. Our temps are dipping back down into the low 30's again after all these wonderful teaser spring days we've had and it'd be a real bummer losing seedlings to a cold snap or worse yet.... another June snow like what we had 2 years ago.

Tender plants are planted no sooner than JUNE FIRST around here. Sometimes even a bit later!
More hardy varieties are started by seed outdoors when the soil temperature reaches 50 degrees.

We had a freeze last week (I think), and I moved everything that was potted inside--just in case. Now I've got at least some of them in the ground, so I'm hoping there are not more frost or freeze events.
