DOVER-FOXCROFT, Maine (NEWS CENTER)--The first week of April marks 10 weeks before it is safe to set plants out in your garden to avoid any damage caused by frost.
The University of Maine Cooperative Extension is offering seedling preparation tips on their website. This includes planting dates, instructions for building seedling containers and a diagram for a homemade PVC grow-light frame.
Slower growing plants, such as tomatoes, celery and cabbage, are ready for preparation right now. Faster growing plants, like pumpkin and cucumber, should wait until late April or May.
