What Happens If I Plant Seed Right Before Season Change?
So I got some melon seeds as a reward, and it's a couple days before Spring is up, if I plant the melon seeds (meant to be planted in the Summer), will they die before summer comes?

I believe they'll die immediately if you plant them in the season they aren't meant to be in.

Yep.. All plants die right as soon as the season changes, so I'd just put them in a trunk and save them for next summer!

rather, save them for when summer actually starts - OP is wondering about planting Summer seeds in the Spring season.
Again, if you plant seeds out of season I believe they should just wither the next day. Never tried it myself though, I just know that's how it works in similar games

You can't plant out-of-season seeds at all- the game doesn't allow them to be placed.

Any plants that are already in the ground when the season swaps over, though, those will become withered.

With 2 exceptions -- Wheat and Corn. Those two crops are the famous "carry over" lot.

BTW, there's a neat trick you can do with wheat: because it doesn't wither at the season change, if you plant it in the last couple of days of Summer, you can use it to preserve any fertiliser you have down. Normally fertiliser is removed at the end of the season (even in the greenhouse -- I was quite annoyed when the second-level Quality fertiliser disappeared from under all my Ancient Fruit plants); but if the plant is still growing then it doesn't seem to be removed. So, if you have a lot of fertiliser down after doing your last run of Summer crops, throwing some cheap wheat seeds over the top of it will protect the fertiliser for the next season, plus it gives you a nice boost of carry-over cash to buy your Fall seeds with :steamhappy:
