Our 2020 Shipping Schedule:

Instead of shipping all of our plants at all times of the year, we ship plants at the appropriate time for you to plant them in your area and the appropriate time for them to ship safely. Keep in mind that our plants travel all over the United States so depending upon where you live, there are some plants that should be ordered to ship on the early end of the range of shipping dates or at the end of that range.

Here is a chart of dates we will be shipping plants for Spring 2020 and below is our chart for Fall 2020. We will take pre-orders for items several weeks prior to shipping and when we have sold out of that item, you will no longer be able to order.


If you have questions about our schedule, please email or call us anytime.

Our plants are seeded on a regular schedule throughout the season so they are always the right size for you, no matter when you need to plant.

Check our map for your average first frost date and calculate your best planting dates for these vegetables in the chart:

Average Last Frost Date In Spring




Fall Planting Dates for Vegetables


Average First Frost Date In Fall


In order to determine the best planting time for your area, find out when your average first frost date will be and then count backwards for the maturity dates of Freeze Tender plants. Keep in mind that most greens and Lettuces will tolerate light freezes and some can grow all winter long. Read more about Growing Fall Vegetables.

(dates in top row are your first frost date in fall.)
