What to Plant in February

In some warmer locations you can begin sowing your vegetable seeds outdoors. For cooler areas, February is a great time to get your tomatoes and peppers started indoors.

Italian Basil

By starting your seeds indoors you can have garden ready transplants ready to go this spring. Sweeter than Genovese basil, this strain produces an attractive, bushy plant with very popular, aromatic leaves. Excellent added to tomato dishes, soups and pasta sauces.

Lettuce

Start a crop of salad mix greens that gets bright sun but not all day. Great for spring crops until the lettuce begins to bolt in the summer sun.

Tomatoes

The most popular garden vegetable. Tomatoes come in many colors, shapes, taste, and sizes. Grow a few varieties every year to find your favorites! Start seeds indoors and 6-8 weeks before your last freeze date for best results.

Onions

Be careful to select an onion variety appropriate for your garden zone. Northern areas should plant long day onions. Southern regions should plant short day onions. Getting onions started in February is a great idea since they take so long to mature.
