Planting Calendars

Since every plant variety has its own temperature and sunlight requirements for seed germination, flowering, and fruit production, there is an optimum time for planting each one. The information below provides varieties that are well-suited for our region and the best time to plant them.

Many gardeners in the club vary these dates based on factors like weather conditions, micro-climates, and moon phases. Just like recipes, these charts are starting points - experiment and find varieties that you enjoy and planting times that work for you.
