Timing for sowing peppers vs tomatoes

Asked December 21, 2017, 8:17 PM EST

Hello, I want to sow my tomato seeds on the last week of March for May 15 transplant (since they get too big if I sow them earlier). My question is - do I need to sow peppers and eggplant earlier (mid-March) since they don't get as big as the tomatoes?

Sow your pepper and eggplant seeds indoors 8 weeks before the last frost date. Take a look at our germination chart http://extension.umd.edu/hgic/starting-seeds-indoors
