When to start planting outdoors?

mrs.growopMay 1, 2007

I have many plants that I have grown from seed.

Tomatoes (cherry, grape & heirloom), zucchini, cuccumber, dahlias, phlox, red sheppard peppers, bell peppers, oregano, parsley, basil. When can I start to consider planting these outside, after hardening off, of course? Many already have 2nd & 3rd sets of true leaves. Zucchini and some tomatoes are starting to grow flower buds.

Peas, lettuce, spinach already planted. Lettuce and spinach under a greenhouse frame for now.

Thanks for the words of wisdom!

When there is no chance of frost. If you have sheltered beds, that you can throw covers over when there is a cold night, then as soon as the soil is nice and warm. Some plants can take more cold than others.
