Now is the perfect time to plan your greatest garden ever, and one of the best ways to ensure success is to plan ahead about when you’ll plant what. Some plants thrive in cooler soils, while others will only think about growing when it’s warmer. It’s important to plant your garden seeds and transplants at the right time so they can benefit from appropriate temperatures. New gardeners may want to begin by using purchased seedlings from a garden center or mail-order company, while those with proven green thumbs often like to start seeds indoors in advance of the garden season. Either way, this handy Spring Garden Worksheet will help you put the right plants into the ground at the right time.

Almost any article on companion planting references the Native American “Three Sister Planting”. This age old grouping involves growing corn, beans and squash – often pumpkin – in the same area. As the corn stalks grow, beans naturally find support by climbing up the stalk. Beans, as all legumes, fix nitrogen in the soil, which supports the large nutritional needs of corn. Squash grows rapidly and the large squash leaves shade out weeds and serve as natural weed block. Good plant companions work in support of each other.

I have been searching for the instructions for planting some vegetables that I could be harvest on my garden and I have got it. This Growing Vegetables table or sheet has included useful elements very wisely because here I have found various kinds of vegetables, its suite conditions & and useful information to harvest it with systemically. Actually I loved Cauliflower and I’m too much interested to plant it on my garden, also Celery and Tomatoes too. Last time I had try to plant Cauliflower, but it didn’t harvest properly and all my Cauliflower became brown and wasted. All my hard works are had been become worse. Even now, I would be fertilizing Cauliflower properly with the help of this information.

Hi Nick, First -be sure you are planting the right seeds for the season- warm season plants vs cool season plants. Here in sunny CA most of our seed packets are offered year round, which makes for a lot of confusion as to what to plant when. Second- there are some seeds that need to be planted directly into the soil..the transplanted seedlings just don’t do well. Recheck the seed packets description.. those that say> plant directly into the soil after last frost, are most often the ones that don’t like being sprouted then transplanted. Third- you need to “harden off” your seedlings before they go into the garden. Meaning, move the sprouts in their flats outside in mostly shade for a couple of days, then move them into a bit longer time in sun after a couple of days and then move them into more sun etc. Make sure you protect them from the pests and birds -just as you do in the garden, after a week or so you can start to transplant.
