Onion 02 Apr, Debbie h. (USA - Zone 9b climate)
Can you plant onions that already have a green stem coming from it? Like ones in fridge if not used fast enough .
Onion 08 Apr, Anon (USA - Zone 4b climate)
Put the question into google and it will explain how to do it.

Check with nurseries, commercial growers in your area or do some searching on the internet.

Cucumber 14 Mar, Kylee Slocum (USA - Zone 4b climate)
I want to grow cucumbers from seed in a 24” container. Can you help me with when I should start them. I am in 4b zone.
Cucumber 15 Mar, (USA - Zone 4b climate)
Check the calendar planting guide on the cucumber page.
Cucumber 13 Mar, Peter Cyr (USA - Zone 8b climate)
I plan to plant them in a spot with a bag of composted chicken manure in Zone 8b. Any suggestions? Last year my cuke plants were glorious and were started from a packet of seeds. Unfortunately I did not get one cuke. Lots of flowers but I think they turned out to be all males.
Cucumber 15 Mar, Anonymous (USA - Zone 4b climate)
Mix in well composted manure with some good friable soil - about 1 part manure to 3 parts soil. Too much manure and the soil will have too much nitrogen. The female flowers have little cucumbers behind the flower. You need bees to pollinate the flowers. Check between 7 and 11am to see if bees are active. You can hand pollinate, read how to do it.

Cucumber 08 Mar, Bill Lott (USA - Zone 9a climate)
How close is too close, to not plant near my tomato plants Thank You
Cucumber 09 Mar, (USA - Zone 4b climate)
Probably 2m.
Tomato 06 Mar, Abby (USA - Zone 10a climate)
My tomato plants are ready to go into raised bed. But the temperature drops to mid 40s at night. Is it okay to plant them out yet. Thanks
Tomato 09 Mar, Anonymous (USA - Zone 10b climate)
Tomato plants can handle night temps in the mid 40s but you should harden them off a bit if they're used to a hothouse. If you want to baby them so they'll grow a bit faster, consider covering them at night with horticultural fleece, though you shouldn't actually *need* to unless frost threatens or the night is forecast to be very windy.
Tomato 08 Mar, (USA - Zone 4b climate)
I would wait until it warms up more - more like in the 50's
Brussels sprouts 04 Mar, Holly Ann Blanton (USA - Zone 8b climate)
I was just curious, i live i the Valdosta Georgia area and I wanted to know something. I have he Catskill Brussel Sprouts and It tells me for my region for where I live is very close to North Florida border. Approzimately 10 min away. So I am located exactly in the middle of the georgia map. At the bottom. If you see. As for the Burpee seeds that I got today at my local walmart store it states for the climate that I do not need to plant until September-November ... now for the northern tip of the border of Georgia it states that the Catskill Brussel Sprouts can plant in April-May. Any suggestions..
Brussels sprouts 05 Mar, Liz (New Zealand - temperate climate)
Brussel sprouts do better in cool weather, so choose your planting time when you know the hot summer days are finished.
Parsnip 02 Mar, John Drake (USA - Zone 7b climate)
I have found that germinating the seeds first in a plastic tray with a lid works best for me, I place a paper towel on the bottom of the tray and dampen it with water and then sprinkle the parsnip seeds onto the paper towel. I then snap the lid on and leave the tray on top of the refrigerator where it will stay warm. I'll check on the moisture level every so often and before too long the root will appear. At that point is when I carefully lift the seed out with a spoon and plant in the prepared bed.
Parsnip 04 Mar, (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
Great idea - I will give it a try when it cools down next month.
Chilli peppers (also Hot peppers) 02 Mar, George Hupp (USA - Zone 10b climate)
I live in San Pedro in zone 10b. My vegetables include, tomatoes, snap peas, green beans (not pole), radishes, green onions and cucumbers. Except for tomatoes and jalapeño, serano and pan lamp are grown by seed. I am attempting to grow exotic hot peppers of many varieties. What hot peppers grow well here from store bought plants (very limited ) and seeds? Not interested in bells. Jalapeño, habanero, shishto, ghost, pequins and chiltepins are my main focus. Thanks for any advice and suggestions.
Chilli peppers (also Hot peppers) 04 Mar, colleen (USA - Zone 10b climate)
Any hot pepper you want to grow will do fine in San Pedro assuming you're not RIGHT on the beach as the fog and salty air could pose a challenge. But since you're able to grow all those other veggies you mentioned, you should be fine. I love hot peppers too and find the selection at nurseries disappointing. Seed catalogs and seed swaps are the way to go. I like Baker Creek because they have free shipping no matter how small the order, though sometimes they're out of stock a lot. My favorites to grow are shishito, which isn't hot but is VERY productive, scorpion, cajun belle, kimchi, and Chinese 5 color. The biggest thing I wish I knew when I started growing hot peppers in SoCal is that they NEED shade cloth during the hottest months, or else the plants will get sun scorched and the flowers won't set fruit. If the plants are in
Chilli peppers (also Hot peppers) 04 Mar, (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
I suggest you will have to buy seeds and germinate them.
Onion 28 Feb, Barbara Esparza (USA - Zone 9b climate)
Are there any onion sets that I can plant in Texas zone 9b that are more heat resistant?
