Early Spring Garden Planning
What does “Early Spring” mean?
The term “Early Spring” means something different for every garden zone, but it seems safe to make this post now and it should cover most of the zones. For example, if you live in a colder zone and “early spring” isn’t until Late March, you can still look at these links and start: buying the appropriate seeds, plan where things will be going in your yard/garden, start cleaning up your yard/garden during warm spells, etc.
This post is full of links with both how-to-grow and general information from my site to help make gardening less stressful for you. If you have other herbs/spices, vegetables, and/or fruit that you think that I missed for this EARLY SPRING post, please add them to the comment section below, and I will mostly likely add them! Don’t forget to prepare for early spring gardening even more by checking out my Ultimate Gardening Guide!
Early Spring Crops to start planning:
For the most part, early spring crops are either vegetables that are sensitive to summer heat or certain fruits that need to be planted as early as possible. There are also a few herbs to consider as well. Not all of the following crops are able to be planted in every garden zone, so make sure you click on the links to learn more about each crop!
This list does not contain crops that need to be started indoors from seed before the frost date for planting in Late Spring. That post will be coming soon! Instead, this is a list of crops that need to be planted as soon as possible in the Early Spring. Some of these Early Spring crops still need to be started as seeds indoors, though, which is why I am posting this list now so that you still have time to get these Early Spring Crops ready in time!
Early Spring Vegetables:
Early Spring Fruits:
Early Spring Herbs:
**The Early Spring Herbs include both ones to plant in Early Spring and ones that you should propagate in the Early Spring.
I hope this list helps you prepare for Early Spring Planting!
If you think I left any important crops out, please leave them in the comment section below, and I will research them and most likely add them.
Are there any crops from this list that you are going to grow for the first time this year?
