What crops? Are you adding heat? How big of a tunnel? You will not find any absolute dates, anywhere. In Coleman's books, you will find some time ranges that you could adjust your your location.


RE: Planting dates for hoophouses?

I'm involved with the "NRCS" High Tunnel Program and have gotten alot of info on "Michigan State University Hoophouse Website". Our farm hovers between a z4b and z5a. There is planting date charts for planting 3 seasons on MSU websit. I adjusted it 2/3 wks later for my location. There are some other university websites/links listed for hoophouse planting than may be helpful on the MSU site..
