It’s January, and gardeners are itching to get a head start on their gardens. You hear them talking about it at Master Gardener meetings and when they see each other in grocery stores. They are talking about it on Twitter and on Facebook. Even in Alabama, it is still too early to plant most vegetables, herbs and flowers that we associate with the spring and summer garden.

He says January is a great time to thumb through the seed catalogs arriving in the mail or to surf online seed catalogs. In this week’s Backyard Wisdom, Tony tells us some of the reason you may want to start your own transplants, particularly tomatoes. He also has some great advice on how to be successful at seed starting indoors. You can learn more by listening here.
