    • I have always grown rutabagas in the fall, not the spring. I recommend planting from mid August to early September here in Virginia, so maybe go a week earlier where you're at. Sometimes I'll plant later (up to early October) if my goal is spring greens rather than roots. If you do plant in the spring I'd be interested in how it goes. Edmund for CWSG
