I often get asked whether Days to Maturity starts when the seed is planted or when the plant is transplanted. The truth is, it depends on who is writing it and they really should tell you. I'm guilty of this myself. However generally speaking,
- If you start the seed indoors and transplant it into your garden, start counting from when you transplant.
- If you direct sow it in the garden, start counting when you plant the seed.
