When should I plant seeds for spring?

For example, tomato seeds require 6-8 weeks growing time until planting, and they can’t be transplanted until after the last spring frost. Since the average last frost date is around April 8 in my area, I should start these seeds between February 11 and 25 to give them 6-8 weeks to grow for planting after April 8.

How many seeds should I plant per hole?

Like most things in gardening, there are always exceptions to this rule of 2-3 seeds per hole. If you’re planting large seeds like cucumbers, melons, or pumpkins, you should only use one seed per hole. However, you can still plant seeds close together and then thin them out once they’ve established themselves.
