6 Weeks Before Last Frost
- Veggies: broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, celery, peppers, and the first group of lettuces
- Veggies: radishes, arugula, garlic (unless you like to sow it in autumn), corn salad, spinach, and hardy oriental greens under cover
- Flowers: candytuft and cornflower. If you have a protected, south-facing wall, you can try direct planting peas
- When weather permits, begin to prepare your outdoor beds as soon as the ground is workable, and doesn't turn to mud when you try to work it. Now is a good time to clean out the compost bins and spread the compost and manure. This early work also gets all the over-wintered weeds sprouting, so you can easily rake them out while young, and before you add your other, faster-working amendments at planting time.
