What to Plant This Month in The Piedmont area of the Carolinas!

If you live in North or South Carolina in the Piedmont area-- Here is a list of veggies you can plant in the garden in April. :)

Early April


Direct sow seeds of:


Salad Mix (like mesclun mix)
Leeks
Parsnips
Potatoes (this is a little late--but if you hurry should be ok)

Plant Transplants of:


Lettuce
Leeks (or seeds)
Tomato
Pepper
Eggplant
(*watch for weird frosts--if the temp should drop you need to protect tender plants)

Late April


Direct Sow:


Snap Beans

**it is a bit late to plant onions--but they should still produce something so do it it if you have them.

** you can plant berries.

** If you didn't start seeds in containers for tomato or pepper--go ahead and do it and transplant them when you can--the season is long, they will still produce. :)

Herbs-- you can tranplant or direct sow most herbs now--except basil-- let it be a little warmer first.

Happy Southern Gardening!

Other Garden Chores for April:


Direct sow or tranplant annual flowers
plant trees, shrubs and vines from transplants
Mulching, weeding, fertilizing
