The Q&A Archives: Seeds Inside?

Question: When should I start my seeds inside ..Before I plan on planting them in my garden?
They say that the last frost is around Memorial Day.
But I just never know when to start them inside.

Answer: The answer to your question depends on what you are trying to grow. Most seed packets, for plants that can be started inside, will suggest how many weeks ahead of the frost date you should plant inside. For example, tomatoes are usually started about 6 to 8 weeks ahead, peppers a bit sooner. Many annual flowers are started about 8 weeks ahead, but some take longer and some take less time.
