When to Start Growing Seeds


There’s nothing quite like home grown vegetables and herbs, but for those of us who aren’t great gardeners, knowing when to start growing seeds can be a daunting task. While this infographic by Illustrated Bites focuses on growing herbs, the time tables and other tips are useful for most plants that you start growing as seeds.

Simply start growing seeds indoors, in a small pot with sun exposure through a window, a month before the last frost in your area. Keep the seeds misted until they grow seedlings about 3 inches tall. Next, get your seedlings ready for life on the outside by placing them in a sheltered, sunny spot outside during the day and bringing them inside at night. After that, your plants should be ready to move and thrive in the ground outside.
