The success of a home garden often depends on the planning and plant selection that precedes the garden season. It is important to understand the differences between warm and cool season crops and their temperature needs and whether they are commonly direct seeded or transplanted. In addition to crop needs, a gardener should be aware of temperature patterns in their area. There is much difference across Tennessee in the first and last date of frost in spring and fall. After crops and timing and are planned, information on starting or purchasing transplants as well as details on seeding and transplanting in the garden are provided.
