Quick Fact: Read the back of your seed packets carefully for info on when to start your plants. Our last frost of the season is typically the first week of June, however, plants can be moved outdoors sooner provided that they are protected with frost blankets. If your seed packet says to start 30 days before the last frost, then start your seeds at the end of April, or beginning of May.
