when to plant seeds in colorado

Do you want to grow tomatoes, peppers, and eggplants? Start these indoors around February 24. Then, around April 30 you should start watching the weather forecast and, as soon as no frost is forecast, go ahead and transplant those into the ground.

Most tomatoes, peppers and eggplants, for example, require around 100 days to harvest, therefore you’d want to transplant those into the ground around June 25. Anyway, it’s important to remember that the numbers in this fall planting guide are only a starting point for you! Good luck and good gardening to you.
Fall is the time to plant garlic. Around August 19, take your cloves apart and plant the toes about 3 to 4 inches deep. This may not be accurate! Garlic dates vary wildly around the country. The way to be sure is to use a soil thermometer. When the soil temperature is 60° at a depth of 4 inches, then plant your garlic.

Sow peas directly around July 20.
On average, your frost-free growing season starts May 4 and ends Oct 3, totalling 152 days. You will find both Spring and Fall planting guides on this page.

Cole crops like broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage can be direct seeded into your garden around July 25, but because of the heat during that time of year, it’s better to start them indoors around June 5 and then transplant them into the garden around July 15. Do the same with lettuce and spinach.
