For plants: When gardeners see the first signs of spring, we get the urge to plant right away! Some plants will begin to push new growth even though the ground is cold and plenty of freezing weather lies ahead. Those of you in warm climates can plant year-round but folks with freezing weather would be better off selecting a date close to their last frost. Many of our customers have satisfying experiences planting much earlier, especially with the very hardy selections. Remember that it's not just the air temperature but the soil temperature that will greatly affect the plants' establishment.

Fall planting provides the benefit of warm soils and lower water stress but it's best to get them in the ground well before first frost. It's actually a great time to plant many species since the warm soils will help the roots continue to establish for a great start to the next Spring!
