Gardeners in who live in zones 3 and 4 have had enough of the long, brutal winter of 2014. Many of us are still seeing snow out our windows, but we know it's spring! Let the seed-planting frenzy begin. !
Starting plants from seed
Catch the excitement for starting plants from seed by watching some of Burpee's inspirational videos.
Start long-maturing warm season vegetables
Start long-maturing, warm-season vegetables from seed now. Because they take so long to mature, these vegetables appreciate getting a head start before being planted out in the garden after danger of frost.
Start cool crops
Start cool crops by the end of the month for an early harvest. Some members of the cabbage family prefer to mature before the weather gets too warm.
Grow lots of vegetables
Do you need more reasons to grow lots and lots of vegetables?
Make sure to have all the seed-starting supplies on hand when you're ready to hit the ground gardening! "Be prepared" is a good motto for gardeners, too.
