I am just beginning to get into gardening, and have bought a load o
bedding plants online from a great website calle
www.gardeningdirect.com. Am I safe to plant these outside yet, th
weatherman is staying we may get some ground frost still? Dont wont t
waste my money and lose these bedding plants... Any help appreciated.
Find your average last frost date. Planting soon after that date is
recommended, but there's no guarantee. I put out the less-sensitive
plants that I can cover/protect easily, then finally put out tomatoes,
peppers, coleus, etc. I used pots, buckets, and old bed sheets when
we had frost warnings. I did this once this year, and as it turned
out there was no frost. Our last frost date was April 15, but it
dipped into the upper 30's early this morning. Last week we had
80-degree temperatures. Serious gardeners watch the weather, and some
are obsessive about it.
