Western Mount/High Plains: Seed Planting Dates zone 5b

Post  RoOsTeR on 2/4/2012, 12:39 pm

Here are some typical/average upcoming seed starting times for my region along the Colorado front range. It's really time to get your plans finalized and seeds purchased or ordered. Most of my local nursery/garden centers have their best seed selection right now.
Most of these dates are for my local area. I am basing my dates on an average last freeze of May 8th. That comes with a 50% probability rate. This is a vast region, with many micro climates. Some of your frost dates may vary by as much as a month.
This is not a complete list by any means. Just some of the more popular veggies and ones I typically plant. Very Happy

Some folks start lettuces indoors around Feb. 20th and move out to cold frames by April 1st. I will direct sow some of mine outdoors starting March 27th and continue to stagger plant thru most of May.

Beans: Start seed in ground May 8-22

Beets: Start seed in ground April 17 - May 29

Broccoli: Start seed indoors Mar 13-27. Start seed in ground April 17-24

Brussel sprouts: Start seed indoors March 13-27

Cabbage: Start seed indoors March 13-27. Start seed in ground May 1-15

Carrots: Start seed in ground April 3-17

Cauliflower: Start seed indoors March 13-27. Start seed in ground May 1-15

Celery: Start seed indoors March 13-27

Corn: Start seed in ground May 22-29

Cucumbers: Start seed indoors April 10-24. Start seed in ground May 15-22

Melons: Start seed indoors April 10-24. Start seed outdoors May 22-29 (direct sow outdoors preferred)

Onion sets: Sow in ground April 10-17

Parsnips: Start seed in ground April 17-May 8

Peas: Start seed in ground March 27-April 10

Peppers: Start seed indoors March 13-27.

Potatoes/tubers: Sow in ground May 8-22

Pumpkins: Start seed indoors April 10-24. Start seed in ground May 15-22

Radishes: Start seed in ground April 17 - May 15

Spinach: Start seed in ground March 27 - April 10

Tomatoes: Start seed indoors March 13-27

Western Mountains and High Plains Region, I've been out and a bout to a couple of garden centers already recently. Seeds are showing up! I've learned to get there early as it seems the good ones go quick!
It's time to really start finalizing your garden plans and getting your seed starting supplies ready. Above are some seed and planting times for the region.
Hope your watching the spring countdown clock on the index page. Times a tickin

I got my order into Territorial. Fisher's is still sorting seeds but soon now. I was just thinking I should drop into the local nursery to see what their experience is with asparagus and what varieties they will be carrying. I suspect they might be willing to go in with me on an order of Millenium Very Happy

I could start onion seed now, but too early for anything else.

Time to be mixing your seed starting mix!

I just started tomatoes and peppers in soil blocks.
