Extension Publication Tells When to Plant Vegetables

AMES, Iowa – Iowa gardeners can learn when to plant vegetables in their gardens by checking Planting and Harvesting Times for Garden Vegetables (PM 534), an Iowa State University Extension and Outreach publication.

Planting times listed in the publication, written by Richard Jauron, ISU Extension horticulturist, are for gardeners in central Iowa. Southern Iowans should plant one week earlier, and northern Iowans should wait a week to begin planting. The publication also lists the last practical date to plant many vegetables.
