    If you are growing from seed, the seed packet should have info on when to start plants inside and when it is safe to sow outside. As for setting out plants, you want to wait until after last frost. In the south, plants start appearing in garden centers while it is very cold out. Many jump the gun and must cover them to protect them. If you wait until the ground warms some, your plants do better and are stronger. Where I live, mid April to first of May.

    A lot will depend on what zone you are in. I am in 4-5 so I usually don't plant until at least mid May to avoid a hard freeze.
