Complete Guide on Starting Seeds Indoors ~ What to Plant & When

Complete Guide on Starting Seeds Indoors ~ What to Plant & When

I get asked all the time from beginning gardeners what can be started
indoors, how long till the seeds can be started indoors, when can the
seeds be started, if the seeds can even be started indoors, when the
seedlings should be safe outdoors, when is the best time to start
seeds, and a billion other questions all the same. So this video will
hopefully help you grow big this year, and get your garden going

    I’m so excited for Garden Season 2019 Just waiting on the seed store to open in November

    QUESTION, Could I use this in zone 8 for starting a fall garden with July and August temps in the 100’s if I started the cool stuff like collards, Kale and parsley in the air conditioning would that work?

    I realize that this is an older thread – but I have to comment on starting beets and beans indoors.  I started them indoors this year and transplanted out in garden.  They transplanted very well, and since I was able to transplant successful seedlings, there are no empty spots in my garden (like happens when I direct seed).  They are both growing very well, and the beets are already golf ball size at the end of May in zone 7.

  7. Mycatsnot2 on June 30, 2019 at 1:36 pm

    My last frost date is end of May. First frost kill is start of September. We plant much earlier lol

  8. G M on June 30, 2019 at 1:38 pm

    i cant get my pepper seeds to grow at all

  11. Yuri Koudriavtsev on June 30, 2019 at 1:40 pm

    do you know if there is a Russian Variant of that last frost date map?

  12. Daniel Guindon on June 30, 2019 at 1:41 pm

    I’m curious as to know what items you would put on your "8week" list ! What do you recommend to start 8 weeks ahead ?

  13. Tiffany Corson on June 30, 2019 at 1:41 pm

    This is helpful, thank you. We are just starting Hydroponics and building a greenhouse. So excited!! We just bought a 5 acre mini farm.

  14. Darryl Hoover on June 30, 2019 at 1:41 pm

    I actually have very good results starting radishes indoors. I generally start them about 3 weeks before I can put them out. They are small enough to transplant without issue and gives me a bit of a head start. I also tend to sow 3-5 radish seeds per cell.

  16. John Cozen on June 30, 2019 at 1:49 pm

    Starting peppers now, Jalepeno and Shishito actually. Tomatoes very soon. I’m in Zone 9b near Sacramento and last frost is around last January.

  17. ZoeGreen17 on June 30, 2019 at 1:49 pm

    That was so helpful! Thank you so much! I just received the Trifecta Plus I ordered in the mail today! I can’t wait to start my first garden! All of your videos are so helpful! I’m learning so much!

  18. Helen Beddoes on June 30, 2019 at 1:53 pm

    Is it the same if you have a home greenhouse?

  19. V A on June 30, 2019 at 1:55 pm

    i disagree with your assertion that starting seeds indoors being luxury. Here in Houston, we have a very short spring and its nearly impossible to get tomatoes here unless you starts seeds in the winter. if you were to plants seeds in the early spring, say March 1, the plant will reach maturity around late May/early June. Problem is by that time, the weather is usually in the high 90’s and you will get virtually no fruit because the pollen burns at those temps. So, in my mind, having 2 ft tall plants ready to go in early March is really the only way to go.

  20. Jimbo Bojim on June 30, 2019 at 1:55 pm

    Hey, quick question. I accidentally ran over a couple of my wife’s tomato plants with a snowmobile, and it broke them down by the dirt, not completely off though. Just like cracked. Are they going to be ok? Should I cover it with dirt?

  21. Brian Skasick on June 30, 2019 at 1:56 pm

    Starting my first garden this year…does it make sense to plant some seeds at the designated time and plant the rest a week later? I am thinking about when the veggies are ready to pick

  22. Roberto R Hernandez on June 30, 2019 at 1:58 pm

    man can’t even hear you and what your talking about check our audio on our end when filming

  23. stephan dijk on June 30, 2019 at 2:00 pm

    thanks very usefull info.

  24. Denise maloney piren on June 30, 2019 at 2:01 pm

    love your video. Being in the Adirondack mountains with a last frost date in June, I got ahead of myself. My former guest room is now full of "muck buckets" (40 gallon buckets) and grow lights. My growing season is not long enough for pumpkins and I am now watching the vines start to take over the bed lol. Also pole beans, pole and all. My room should be a jungle soon. I hate the long winters here.

    This video was so helpful! I wish I had seen this last year. This was my first year planting veggies and I have so much to learn!! I just planted stuff as I went with no rhym or rhythm. Better luck to me next year.

  28. Truth Spoken on June 30, 2019 at 2:04 pm

    Thanks for sharing this helped e out alot

  29. TJ Wilson on June 30, 2019 at 2:04 pm

    Great video. Did you know Ketchikan, Alaska gets 141 inches of rain, on average, per year.

  30. Rose M on June 30, 2019 at 2:05 pm

    I’m not going to start those indoors. Promise.

  31. terri bishop on June 30, 2019 at 2:06 pm

    Excellent, excellent!!!!! Ty

  32. Gavin Brinck on June 30, 2019 at 2:06 pm

    Older video, still great production value, and very helpful information

  33. Kan Kris on June 30, 2019 at 2:07 pm

    From Canada….Quebec with terrific winters- snow and severe cold !

  34. Nellie Foley on June 30, 2019 at 2:07 pm

    I really like Clyde’s Garden Planner. It’s recommended by a lot of Master Gardeners. It has all the information with what to start when, planting starts inside to direct sow to when you’ll harvest. It costs $5.

  35. Wendy Weddell on June 30, 2019 at 2:09 pm

    Thanks for the seed starting guide

  36. The Natural Nook on June 30, 2019 at 2:13 pm

    I’m confused are you saying to start celery a little later because it grows faster? Everyone else tells me it grows super slow and takes 2 weeks to a month to germinate

  37. barb Snyder on June 30, 2019 at 2:13 pm


  38. Chlexie L. on June 30, 2019 at 2:15 pm

    THANK YOU!!!! I am a beginner beginner and bought all my supplies and was searching for helpful information and honestly this was incredible!! I’m getting out my highlighters, copying your list and that’s it!! You took such a vast amount of information and explained in detail in a way that a beginner like me could understand it. 👍👍

  39. Tig Johnson on June 30, 2019 at 2:16 pm

    Rofl my last frost is May 10ths and started them today March 9th …0’well 😋

  40. Kevin Decoteau on June 30, 2019 at 2:16 pm

    I will not start those indoors! 🙂

  41. The Vegan Texas Gardener on June 30, 2019 at 2:16 pm

    Im in gulf coast texas. If i started seeds 5 weeks after frost put directly sowed outdoors am i going to be okay? I’m worried im setting myself up for failure

  42. Tara Everest on June 30, 2019 at 2:18 pm

    Just the video i was looking for thank you!

  43. AEL on June 30, 2019 at 2:19 pm

    what calendar is that? So cute!

  44. noahsark1962 on June 30, 2019 at 2:19 pm

    Thanks Luke

  45. 007Lehua on June 30, 2019 at 2:19 pm

    OMG! I wish I would have seen this a while ago. Lesson learned – still time to plant my squash, cucumbers, and watermelon. Thanks, Luke🥜🥒🍉

  46. Emiliapocalypse on June 30, 2019 at 2:21 pm

    I absolutely HATE the farmer’s almanac. It’s never steered me right. My plants get started too soon, and it’s way too cold to put them out by the time they’re too big. Don’t know what I’m doing wrong, but I wish I could find a better planting calendar.

  47. Miranda Durham on June 30, 2019 at 2:22 pm

    Doing my first garden!!! Started my tomatoes and herbs in March. Since I’m in Michigan too that should be pretty good.

  48. Annie B on June 30, 2019 at 2:24 pm

    I started my stuff indoors a few weeks early (2 weeks). . . oops! It might still work out. I started tomatoes, squash, cucumbers and green onions. The green onions aren’t doing too well, but everything else is doing amazing! I’ve had to put them into larger containers. First garden, here we go!

  49. Kylie Weber on June 30, 2019 at 2:24 pm

    Starting my first garden & I’m also from MI! ✋🏼

  50. julie fulcher on June 30, 2019 at 2:29 pm

    I’m in Warren zone 6 so go ahead and use us as an example ☺
