    It all depends on the plant. Check the “link” we have to the West Coast Seed chart. But some general tips are (as long as it is warm enough outside) :

    1) Let the true leaves come in 1st ( the 2nd pair of leaves) Sort of at the point you can tell what the plant is.

    2) Make sure you harden off the seedlings 1st- having a few hours every day out side before letting the seedling stay out all night.

    3) If the nights are still cold once you leave out side cover with a cloche ( a clear 2 liter pop bottle works well with the bottom cut off).

    Enjoy your garden!
