i use bagseed cuz im not sure how much i trust buying seeds. the strain i got this year seems like it will make it fine its got about a week or so left but i think i got lucky. im also kindaaaa lucky in a way that it got polinated so i will have seeds for future grows that might make it before the weather gets to bad.
if you dont mind reading check out flowering times on the strains youd like to grow, they usaly say how long flowering is and what not. id say youd want your plant to be done by the end of Sept. the weather in mid october is nerv wrecking lol.

Unless your near the canadian border, an autoflower isn't necesary. There is a strain guide sticky at the top of this forum, link to it is in my sig.
Just make sure what strain you decide on finishes in sept/oct. There are plenty to choose from. Mold resistance will be the other thing to look at.
I'm in Minnesota (somewhat near the Canadian border, less than 2 hours north of here) and I plan to start an outdoor grow this spring, should I go with autoflowering? Why/why not?

When is your first expected frost? Most of the earliest strains I have grown need until at least 3rd week in Sept. A couple of frosts are OK, not optimal at the end. Where I live the first frost tells me I have about a week left if needed. A hard freeze, or temps consistently in the low 30's will kill em though. The best way I could describe generally, is if you still have some supple foliage growing until end of Sept to early Oct your fine. If you got snow on the ground during football preseason you might want to look into an auto, IMO.
Don't get me wrong. Autoflowering strains are necesary for certain parts of the world. I would never bash someone for doing what they need to, in order to smoke some homegrown outdoor. I do however believe plenty of outdoor growers grow them unecesarily, because they are unsure if standard genetics will finish in time.
I will not bash autoflowers, rather state the benefits of standards. Yield and quality will be superior with standard genetics, enough said? lol.
Good luck next season. Happy growin.
Gotcha, to be honest if I start June 1st I think I'll be good. Thanks for all the good info! +rep
