planting Sweet Peas

Zone Snohomish Wa. | Anonymous added on March 25, 2017 | Answered

I live in the PNW area, Snohomish, Wa to be exact, and I have started my sweet peas indoors and I am wondering when it's safe to plant outside. I am wanting to way lay the seedlings from getting leggy. I'm just not sure what the timing is here. Thank you, Katharine andrews

Your growing zone is 8a. The average last frost date for your area is between April 11 and 20th. Your seedlings can outdoors sometime after these dates.
You do always have to monitor weather trends, as these dates are average guidelines.

Make sure you harden off your seedlings before being placed out into the garden full time.
