The Q&A Archives: When to plant fruit and veggies

Question: My seed packets say i should plant my garden now but we are still getting down to the 30 & 40 at night. Will it be safe to plan them?

Answer: I'd wait another week or two. The planting guidelines on the packets are just guidelines - based on average last frost date. Every year is different and some years you can plant earlier, other years you have to plant later. Give your garden another couple of weeks to warm up and then plant your seeds. Hope you have a great garden!
