Find out exactly when to plant what with this easy & free Fall Garden Planting Calculator…
Knowing when to plant a fall garden is important so that you can make sure you plant your cold-tolerant crops at the right time: too late and they won’t have time to mature before they freeze and stop growing; too early and they may wilt or even bolt in the late summer heat, depending on the type of crop. Having access to a good fall garden planting calculator can be extremely helpful for determining the best planting times for your area.
Fortunately, the folks over at Seeds for Generations have created a FREE Fall Planting Calculator to help you determine exactly which crops you can still plant and what the latest date is that you can plant them!
The Fall Planting Calculator allows you to input your First Average Frost Date and then calculates the following helpful information for 40 different types of common fall garden crops:
- For plants that need to be started as seedlings, then transplanted into the garden, the latest Indoor Start Date
- For plants that are direct seeded, the latest date to plant them outdoors
- For seedlings, the latest transplant date to plant them outdoors
- Based on the current date, it tells you whether you can still plant a specific crop or not
