Want a Planting Guide for the Year?
Our Central Texas Monthly Planting Guide can help you keep track of Texas growing seasons and plan ahead to maximize your success in the garden. Each month includes planting times every two weeks and will help guide you whether to start by seed or plant seedlings you have grown yourself or purchased from your local nursery. Having this guide at your fingertips will help you each year as you are learning and growing in Central Texas.
Tips for planting this month:
Keep an eye on the upcoming weather before you plant and watch for any impending frosts
Add a good layer of compost before planting
Keep soil moist for proper seed germination
Water new plants in well
Watch them grow each day!
Many of your warm season plants need pollination to be productive, so make sure you add some flowers to your kitchen garden to attract beneficial insects like bees and butterflies.
We're so lucky to have this incredible month of gardening while others are still waiting for the spring thaw!
