Ask a Master Gardener: Planting vegetables - 04-20


Question: I’m noticing that local stores are already selling tomato and pepper plants as well as other vegetables. How can I tell if it’s the right time to plant these?. Answer: After such a long, dreary winter, it’s tempting to throw caution to the wind and plant all your vegetables at once, especially when the stores display such lovely tall tomato plants that say “take us home!”
