Many of the vegetable varieties grow well from seeds. Vegetables like beans, corn, peas, radishes and some other root vegetables do not grow well if they are transplanted and it is good to set them directly in the garden. If you are residing in short-summer region, you could very well plant celery, peppers, artichokes, eggplants and tomatoes as an indoor plants or make a purchase of them like a transplants in case if you are residing in short-summer region.
Sow lettuce, squash, broccoli, cucumber and onion as indoor plants or straight away in your garden. It is better for you to follow the instructions given on the packets of the seeds. Based on the instruction you could skip a season, otherwise plant them directly in your garden when the condition is favorable to you.
Garden tip: Sow the seeds 2 to 4 times deeply compared to the width of your seed.
What is the correct time to make sow seeds in the outdoors?
The correct time to make the plantation of a specific vegetable is based on the tolerance of cold and the date of frost in that region. Vegetables that could tolerate cold weather, like peas, carrots and radishes, could be planted just before one month of the average final frost date. But there are vegetables that grow well in the warm condition. For such vegetables it is good for you to stay until the average final frost date so as to plant them. Moreover, you could make the plantation during the late season, so that all the crops do not mature at the same time.
Garden tip: Once taking out the vegetables, replace that region with some other crop so that you could get plenty from your garden. This practice is called as succession planting.
Just ahead of one week of making the transplantation, start hardening the vegetable seedlings. Search for the outdoor spot that is safe from wind as well as also get adequate morning sun. Keep the seedlings in the spot for some hours during the 1st day and then carry them indoor. Step by step, increase the period for which they are kept outside and leave them for the whole night in the outdoor at the weekend. Supposing, if the condition is not good for plantation maintain the seedlings in the cold frame so that they could stay there until the condition suits the plantation.
There are some varieties of vegetables that require huge moisture to give good yielding. The correct quantity of water required for them depends on the kind of soil, conditions of the weather and the type of vegetable you grow. For instance, if your soil is a sandy one you need to water them in plenty and for the clay soil you should not water much.
