being this is only my 2nd year gardening in florida i figure i would ask some the locals who have been here for awhile when do you start your indoor seeds to have them ready for the gardening season? this year i know i got a late start due to a few complications (had to convince grandpa to let me do this) but was just wondering when i should start planting my seeds for the spring season transplants.? any and all help is appreciated

I think in general you want them in the groud by the end of feb. (though this year was later). So I'm thinking 6-10 weeks before feb. 28 depending on what it is you are starting. I am just taking an edjucated guess, I haven't started from seed, yet.

OK -- I'm not a Florida local, but do garden in similar circumstances. I started this year's tomatoes, peppers and eggplants on January 18th. Turned out for this year only it was a bit early as we had snow on March 18th. Seed starting Icon_eek But normally that would have been just about right for setting out the last week of March. A really neat garden planner that will help you with this can be found at www.littlehouseinthesuburbs.com. Just find your average frost-free date and use this neat little book.

If you are in a (normally) frost-free area, then I'd say Christmas for seeding warm weather plants. Cool weather plants would be a fall crop for you.

Choksaw, you might see if you can find a book called Florida Homegrown II: The edible landscape by Tom McCubbin. Its all about growing food in Florida. Its an older book and I was concerned the climate might vary now and put us in more of the south Florida planting district but I emailed Mr. McCubbin and he said we're still "Central Florida". The NPR library might have the book too. If not, I'm happy to loan you my copy. I'm just down the road in Tarpon Springs.
