Q & A re: Lead time for starting / transplanting plants


Submitted by: D. Kaufmann

Q & AIs there a rule of thumb regarding the amount of lead time a cold greenhouse gives you for starting or transplanting plants? For instance, if May 1st is my last frost date for outside planting, can I plant/transfer plants two weeks, three weeks, etc. into the greenhouse before May 1st?

Best of luck!
