We're starting our first garden this year, and living in a region we have never lived in before, we are having some trouble finding start dates.
We live in Zone 7, but we live on a mountain in this zone at about 3,000ft elevation, so I have been finding conflicting Last Frost Dates.
We would like to grow basil indoors strictly, and from what I understand, I would need to start the seeds for eventual outdoor transfer around the middle of March based on our last frost date (April 15ish). If we want to grow strictly indoors, and we keep the house about 70F at all times and have both East and West facing windows, does it really matter when I start the seeds? I want to make sure I don't waste my seeds, but I also feel like waiting until mid-March or later is kind of silly.
