date to plant tomato and cucumber seeds indoors
Start tomato seeds 6 weeks before your last frost date. Cucumber - 4 weeks or less before the last frost date.
A general guideline for planting warm season plants outdoors is around Mothers Day. Be prepared to protect your plants with a floating row cover if a frost is expected.
Do not start your seeds too early. The proper time to sow seeds for transplants depends on when plants may safely be moved out-of-doors in your area. See the spring frost dates for your area and and our website on starting seeds indoors.
