Best Seed Starting Temperature

Are you a newbie gardener and don't know what the BEST SEED STARTING TEMPERATURE is for your new seeds?

Have I got the PERFECT thing for you.

I made a list that shows the best seed starting temperature, or my fancy title, Optimum Germination Temperatures, for the most common veggies!

Are you excited?  Confused?  What does this mean for you?

This means that you can follow the weather where you live.

It doesn't matter if you are in Minnesota, California, South Carolina, or Timbuktu.  YOU will know exactly when is the best time to put your precious seeds in the ground.

Now are you excited?

I made my list in alphabetical order...maybe I should make another by temperature instead (note to self.  You will have to remind me because I will forget where I put the note.)

You will see some seeds prefer cooler temperatures.  These are the traditional spring crops like lettuce, kale, and spinach.  They can also be planted in the fall when temperatures cool down.  With the Optimum Germination Temperature list, you will be able to know the exact times to plant.

Some seeds need a sweater in those conditions.  They will have a very hard, if not impossible time, getting started.  I'm thinking of the summer crops like tomatoes and peppers.  Green beans, cucumbers and corn all fall in that range too.

So check it out!  You will be signing up for my email list where you will learn how to get a sample of FREE SEEDS so you can get started right away.

I ask for the two letter abbreviation of what state you are in so I will know what your weather is.  I can then customize what updates you get for where you are.

Now are you excited?
