Starting seeds indoors is a good way to get a jump on the growing season. You can plant them as little as 3 weeks or as long as 3 months before the last frost. Use this chart to help you decide how many weeks before your region's last frost date you can start your seeds to have them ready for transplanting outdoors at the right time.
