Host Richard Hentschel talks about very early season gardening. Very hardy plants can be transplants or seeds can be put out 4-6 weeks ahead of our average frost free date. Frost tolerant veggies get out in the garden 2-3 weeks before that average frost free date. Tender veggies are planted on or about that average frost free date and the last group known as warm loving go out 1-2 weeks after the average frost free date.
Green Side Up is a weekly gardening program produced by University of Illinois Extension. It is hosted by Richard Hentschel, Extension Educator, Horticulture.
