New to SFG

Post  dcgelinas on Thu 22 Apr - 19:23

Hi Everyone,

I'm new to gardening in general. Can anyone tell me if it is too late to start eggplant, tomato and bell peppers seeds? I just got my beds assembled and filled with Mel's Mix. Thanks for any advice.

Welcome, Dcgelinas! No, it is not too late. I wouldn't waste time (says she who hasn't finished her seed-starting!).

I think you will be happy starting out with SFG while a beginner - it removes so many of the tricky details that can cause problems!

I look forward to seeing you around!

I'm in Maine and have started tomatoes, peppers and eggplants in the last few weeks. I'll also start a few more peppers and eggplant this week because I don't have enough. Our community garden is just starting theirs this week so I don't think you're too late.
I understand that even young starts can catch up once planted in the garden. Try it. It can't hurt.
You can always buy young plants at the local Lowe's, Home Depot, Walmart, hardware store, feed store or nursery if you run into problems.
Good luck on being a newby. You'll love it.
