When can I plant my seedlings out?
Frost hardy veggies like bok choy, gai lan, shungiku, lettuce, cilantro etc can be planted as soon as you receive your seedlings in May. In fact they thrive in cooler temperature.
Frost sensitive veggies like tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers do like the cold. Monitor the weather forecast and plant them out when night temperature is consistently above 10 degrees. This generally happens in late May in the Ottawa area. If you're growing in containers, you can transplant the seedlings into the containers and move the containers indoors on cold nights.
How close do I plant the seedlings?
For tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers, give them 12 - 24 inches of space in between. Leafy greens are generally planted about 6 inches apart. Aromatics like cilantro and green onions can be planted 1-2 inches apart.
Do I need to harden off the seedlings?
No, they are already hardened off.
