Planting out, established, purchased definition help....

Monday, 01 Aug 11 Sunny 24°C / 76°F

So I feel really dumb but have no clue what “planting out” means….or if I purchased a plant say…today, but don’t put it in the ground until tomorrow, do I switch it to established?

Why aren’t my days adding up? Is it a supporter thing? I’m planning to become a “supporter” next payday so will it add up then?

I’m so confused….

    You can find definitions of milestones here

    I dont know what you mean about the days not adding up. If i look at your plants next to the plants name it shows how many days since the plant was first entered. Day 0 is the first day of the planting (an established, purchased, sown or transplanted milestone). next to every subsequent milestone is a number indicating how many days since day zero that milestone was entered.

    Thanks…hmmm…mine all say day 0…that spurred my confusion because was trying to figure out if only certain milestones trigger the counter to start. This helps a lot….Hope you are enjoying the weather, it actually feels like summer now.
