Spring Planting Guide.

January 20, 2011

Spring planting guide dates are based on the average freeze dates, which may differ within cities and counties. The guide is for Fort Worth- Dallas metro area. Please treat these guides as general guides and don’t be afraid to experiment. For instance, if you plant onion starts for growing green onions, your window of opportunity for planting is much wider.  Trial and error often produces wealth of experience that is priceless. Enjoy and have fun!
