Despite the fact that it’s Spring, and we might have had some really nice, warm, sunny days once in lately… I have a piece of advice for you:
DON’T PLANT YET!
Take it from me… Been there, done that.
Here in Tennessee, last weekend was one of the most beautiful we’ve had since last September.
The urge to plant some fresh, colorful flowers was very strong.
Somehow, we resisted. (Must’ve been all the previous years of planting too early that finally set us straight!)
If you’re wondering exactly when it is safe to plant in your area — when you can be reasonably sure that there won’t be any more nights of below-freezing temperatures or nights when frost is projected requiring you to run out into the night and cover up all your plants — check here: Victory Seeds.
Victory Seeds shows the likelihood of a frost in any given area. This site gives you the dates when you’re practically guaranteed that frost will no longer occur in your area.
