Is anyone else shocked that it is February already?! If you’re wondering what seeds to start in February and you’re in Zone 5A, you may be a little disappointed.
Last month, I shared with you seeds you can start in January, which was pretty slim. My little rhubarb plants are coming up and they are SO cute!
February has just a few seeds that we can “officially” start but I’m going to push the envelope a bit here and plant more than I probably should. Fair warning to you, seed planting exponentially increases in March! – YAY!!
SIDE NOTE: If you are in a different USDA Zone (I’m in 5A) you can go to Gardinate to figure out what you can/should start.
As I mentioned, this month I am starting some seeds a bit on the early side. The reason for this is that my starts last year were a bit small on some of these varieties and they didn’t mature in time.
Without further adieu, here is a list of what I’m putting in my seed starting trays in February
Vegetables to Start in February
- Asparagus (mid)
- Chicory (all)
- Leek (mid)
- Onion (mid)
- Radicchio (all)
- Scallions (mid)
- Peppers (mid) – this is my early planting
Flowers to Start in February
- Coneflower (mid)
- Cornflower (mid)
- Cosmos (mid)
- Valerian (mid)
Herbs to Start in February
- Chives (mid)
- Lemon Balm (mid)
So pretty slim right?! You may be tempted to plant far more than I have listed above. You can always experiment but I thought this was a good reminder for all of us.
Can you relate??
I’m holding myself back…barely
