    I’m in zone 8a NC what should I plant right now? I’m just starting but I’m using buckets, and 4x4x4 raised beds.

    Thanks so much for breaking it down by zones. 7b here and while I don’t think we’re gonna have a frost, but it’s always reassuring to get that list. My melons, peppers are still in the greenhouse with only 2 leaves.

    Did I hear you correctly? This video was mosty about zone 7? Didn’t hear much about zone 8 and wanted to be sure you didn’t misspeak

    I’m in zone 8b, we’ve nice weather coming up and I’ve got everything started by seed inside. Too many to list. Everything has sprouted. Wish I would have found your video a month ago. But now I can check your list and start getting it in the ground with some confidence

    What are zones , pardon my ignorance , does this video only apply in America ? 😊 we are in Cornwall, UK

  9. Tina I on June 21, 2021 at 1:47 am

    I am a virgin gardener so what would you say I should plant to increase my confidence? Zone 9b

  10. X squad on June 21, 2021 at 1:48 am

    All listed can go out as SEEDS or TRANSPLANTs except the four?…Peppers, tomatoes, celery and Brussels sprouts. A little confused. Thanks

    Hi! So I’m past the frost date so the items you listed that could be transplanted before the last frost date, can they now be placed directly into the soil? Thanks

  16. Vicki Fennell on June 21, 2021 at 2:05 am

    Out of all that you listed or mentioned…do you recommend any for planter boxes rather than the ground? I use the ground and planter boxes in my garden…just wondering what you suggest
