When to sow outside: RECOMMENDED. 2 to 4 weeks before average last frost and when soil temperature is 60°–70°F. Successive Sowings: Every 3 weeks until 2 weeks before the first fall frost. If using winter row covers, you can extend your season 2 to 4 weeks after first fall frost. In USDA zone 8 or warmer, also sow in fall for winter harvest.
