When is it safe to plant? It's a popular question in early spring! Plants that can safely be planted (after hardening off) include: alyssum, dusty miller, sweet peas, pansies, and snapdragons. If you're unsure, check out our Frost Hardiness Page for a more extensive list of annuals, perennials, & vegetables and when it's safe to plant them.

How to harden off — It means to gradually expose a plant to the elements outdoors. Plants coming from a greenhouse need to be accustomed to drier air, brighter sunshine, warmer temperatures, and wind. If they are set out suddenly, the change can damage them permanently. We recommend that you set them in a protected area for a few days where they will get some exposure to the elements. Then, when they have been toughened somewhat you can plant them into a fully exposed site.

Keep a frost cover handy for unexpected unseasonal cold snaps after your garden is planted. It will keep the cold air off new seedlings as they emerge from the soil.
