Due to the unknown harsh winters, we consider Southwest Wisconsin to be a zone 4. As a guide we use May 15th as our last frost date and October 15th as our first to indicate planting times.
On the back of the the seed packet you will find plant and growing information. Most seed packets have directions indicating when to plant the seeds by weeks. Those weeks are determined by the frost date. Example: If the seed packet says 4-6 weeks before your last frost date, count back 4-6 weeks from the last frost date, May 15.
What to grow when?
Still unsure when to plant what? Here's a guide that we follow according to our Zone.
Like me you might have forgotten to plant some seeds or ordered more out of curiosity and desire. Whatever the reason maybe, if your past the recommended sowing schedule don't worry, your NOT late! Simply plant them in April!

**It is recommended some plants be directly sown into the soil. Sunflowers, Zinnias, and Corn are some to name a few. The soil must be a certain temperature to do so. It is best to wait until the last frost day (May 15th) or after depending on the variety and growing recommendations on the back of the seed packet.
