1. Timing is everything. Recommended sow times are based on the average first and last frost date in your area.
2.Take in the lay of the land! How much sun does your garden get? All veggies require full sun, while a flower garden can be grown in the sun or shade, depending on the plants.
3. Find out what zone you are in. Plants will only grow within specific temperature ranges. Annual vegetables and flowers cannot tolerate frost and will not survive winter, while perennials have adapted to colder temperatures. When shopping for perennial plants, be sure the plant is recommended for your zone.
4. Not all seeds are created equal – Some seeds prefer to be started indoors, while others can be sown directly into the ground. Burpee has a variety of Seed Starting kits to make indoor seed starting a breeze!
