I keep my homemade Planting Guide taped to the back of the lid of my seed box. It is seriously one of the most used pieces of paperwork I have for the garden.
It includes the distance the seeds need to be planted from each other, how deep, the germination temperature, when to start and transplant, plus other bits of info that you always need when you’re seeding. And unlike a lot of other guides, it includes the Square Foot Gardening spacing, which I use often!

Hi Teresa! Once you subscribe, you should get a confirmation email from MailChimp with the subject line: “ReSprout: Please Confirm Subscription”. Click on the link in that email and it will take you to a page on MailChimp that asks you to confirm. (Say yes, obviously, LOL.) Then you will be officially subscribed! After that, you should get the “Welcome” email within 15 minutes of that with the subject line “Your Planting Guide Download.” Thanks! Let me know how it goes!
Thank you so much! This is such a great resource & incredibly handy to have the information all in one place. I have it printed and in my garden planning binder.
Oh, that makes me so happy Janet! I’d love to hear more about this binder!? I’m such an organization nerd. 🤓❤️
Fantastic PDF! It’s so helpful and answers every question. Thank you for putting this together and making it a free download 🙂
I’m so glad it helped, Shamma! I know, myself, I can never remember all this stuff. I go crazy googling it every time I go to seed something.
Thank you very much. I hope I can edit that guide or find information about Cupressaecae in it!
Is this for a specific zone?
Hi Amy! It’s adjustable based on your frost date, so the seeding dates are X weeks before your last frost for example. Obviously the last frost for Georgia will be different than Alaska!
I love lists and this PDF helps so much.! I have been growing flowers and other ornamentals in my yard for years. This year I have tried growing food and am loving it so much!! Love all your information on all your sites. You have inspired me to look at my yard in a whole new way. I realize now how much room I have if I just plan it all out. Thanks for sharing.
I am a list nut too! Can you tell. 😉 You know, I always think I have a small yard and then EVERY YEAR, I find another spot to cram some more plants in, so you might be surprised how much you can get in there!
Thank you for the pdf list in the top of my seed box 🙂
Right?? Isn’t that THE BEST PLACE for it? OMG I don’t know what I did without it before.
Thank you ! I am including it with a Christmas present for my son in law of seeds and a seed storage box!
Oh that’s so nice to hear! I hope he enjoys it!
