Greetings!
The energy is running high here at HCG! We can feel the momentum of Spring heading our way, and we are very excited!

The first official day of Spring is March 20th and the next important date we are always asked: when can I start to plant things?

That depends on a few variables, consider the plant, seed, and soil temps. We also need to know when the average last frost date is.

According to the wise Old Farmer's Almanac, it is April 24th on Cape Cod.

How does this pertain?? Let's take Early Wonder Beet seed for example. On the package it tells you for sowing outside you can seed 2 to 4 weeks BEFORE the average frost date. You could also go by the soil temp as well, which is ideally 45°for beets.

Say you want to grow Thai Basil , (I love this in window boxes!) this plant can't be seeded outdoors until 1 to 2 weeks AFTER the average last frost date, or when soil temps reach 60° (and yes we do carry both of these here at HCG).

So what's a person to do if you have to wait? Prepare & plan and and in the meantime work on your houseplants. We know it's the outside stuff your itching to do, but if you want greenery in your life year round, you need to do the necessary maintenance of the houseplants too.

C.L. has a great blog post below that gives great advice on taking care of neglected pot-bound plants.

Happy (almost) Spring!


Be well -♥ Nan

Time to Repot Houseplants
I find that the early spring is a great time to repot houseplants. Since the days are getting longer this is giving all plants the signal that it’s time to grow, and if you put some of your plants out for “summer camp” in late May, they will be well adjusted to their new digs by then. Additionally,...
