June Seed Starting

We are in the midst of our growing season, and you have several options for seeds you can start. However, it's important to consider the specific growing conditions, average temperatures, and the length of the growing season in your area.
Here are some seeds you can start in June in New Brunswick:

Seeds To Start In The Ground:

Early June: These seeds don't mind the cooler temperatures. Beets, Carrots, Spinach, Swiss Chard, Lettuce & Peas

Mid to Late June: These seeds need warmer temperatures to germinate. Beans, Cucumber, Melons, Squashes, Herbs 
and flowers such as Sunflowers, Zinnias,Marigolds, Nasturtium and so many more!
Remember to check the specific instructions on the seed packets for proper planting depth, spacing, and care requirements. Planting seeds such as Peas, Beans, Spinach, Lettuce, Beets and Carrots consecutively will give you a steady supply of vegetables without being overwhelmed.

Transplants For June:

Mid to late June is the perfect time to plant all your warm season vegetable starter plants such as Tomatoes, Peppers, Celery, Squashes, Herbs and Melons.
These plants need a long growing season so the transplants that are several months old will produce mid to late summer. Don't forget to prepare your transplant garden beds with organic compost in early june to add the nutrients your transplants will need to thrive!
