growguide seed starting planner
growguide helps you plan a vegetable garden by informing you what you can sow, harden off, or transplant, week by week, based on your frost dates, in just a few steps.
for spring vegetable garden planning, select "spring garden" for the season, enter a planning date, your last spring frost date, and your first fall frost date. weekly sowing, hardening off, and transplanting tasks for spring plantings are calculated for you from these dates.
for fall vegetable garden, select "fall garden" for the season, and follow the directions for spring planning above. not all vegetables can be grown in the fall, but for those that can, you need to start the seeds in the summer. growguide will tell you which vegetables can be grown in the fall garden and when to start them.
when it's time to start your seeds, take a look at our seed starting techniques video for some helpful seed-sowing advice.
