My Mom and I want to go on a trip east in the spring, but I normally start my plants on Earth Day around April 23rd. Last year was late and this year it was mid June almost. So my question is do you think they were flukes or is this a new trend for Ontario? The few plants I have that decided to live after this spring of cold and rain. Then survived the drought of almost 3 months look like they should at the end of June mid July. Would they be okay if I started the plants in mid May and then in the garden third week? My Mom refuses to get heater cables or pay for the hydro.
