This is my very first post and I was wondering if anyone could help me understand what a "Frost-free" area is. I live in Zone 8A looks like, and I'm not familiar with gardening in Georgia. I bought a couple seed packets; Catnip and Onion (Tokyo Long White Bunching) and both of the packets say to sow in fall for frost-free areas. I also have some pretty Kale and Strawflower seeds on the way! I have only just arrived to Georgia last November and I honestly can't remember the weather conditions. So what I really would like to know is if I should put the seed in the ground now, or wait 'til spring?

Thanks in advance for all your help!

Mi Reed

<![CDATA[Slow start to spring]]> http://www.burpee.com/community/discussion/595/slow-start-to-spring My first round of seeds arrived this week and they joined the few packets of early lettuce/kale that I found at the nursery. The very slow arrival of spring has prompted me to delay sowing the tomato and peppers another week. Looking around my local Princeton, NJ area there are a few signs of spring getting here, like hellebores and some tree blossom swelling, but the only daffodils I have found were in the town where they were protected - makes me want to keep going back to see them!

What is a cloche you ask?  Also referred to as hoophouses, cold frames, hot beds or row covers, cloches are an informal structure designed to raise the temperature of the soil and air around the plants, extending your gardening season. http://www.burpeehomegardens.com/Blog/2010/11/24/cold-frames.html
