PLEASE don't plant too early!
Don't look at the calendar. Look instead at the thermometer, at night temperatures. Plants grow at night.
Plant when night temps are above 55-60 degrees for peppers and eggplants, 50-55 degrees for tomatoes.
This means planting in May for most of the country.
Young plants hate cold feet, and will perform poorly if planted early. It is better to plant 3 weeks late, than 1 day early. When nights are warm, young plants thrive. When nights are cold, young plants catch a chill, growth is halted and plants become more susceptible to disease. Plants always do better when the night temps are warm. No young plants like cold and wet.
Please also think about the plants' time in transit. If the box is subjected to very cold outside temperatures, the plants inside the box will be damaged. Here are our Safe Delivery Weeks. This is the earliest that we will guarantee safe delivery to your area. We can ship earlier, but you will need to sign off on liability if plants arrive cold damaged.
Plants shipped on our very first ship date will be the youngest/smallest plants of the season.
These plants may need to have a bit of extra care, and will not be as large as those shipped later in the season.
Not sure when to plant? Check out our Safe Planting Date Map.
Please read and follow our planting instructions which will accompany your order, paying special attention to slowly acclimate these plants to your garden. Never open the box and plant same day!!!
