Garden Planner

Welcome to the garden planner! We'll keep you up to date on the growing seasons in Louisiana. Let's grow a lot of vegetables together!

Ready to plant!

Get working! It's time to plant these! The planting time left is how long until the end of the planting season for each crop. It's not generally recommended to plant something outside of it's planting season.

Frost

Keep in mind that for spring vegetables, it is generally recommended to plant seeds indoors or in a greenhouse prior to the last frost date (roughly March 15th for South Louisiana). If you live in Central or North Louisiana, the LSU guide recommends planting spring crops 2-4 weeks after the start of the planting season, based on how far north you live.
