Time for Spring plantings!
Start with pansies and the time is now! You can't beat them for color and cold tolerance as the temperatures waver between winter and spring. Generally, as long as temperatures stay above 25 degrees your pansies will do well. If the temperatures do drop below this, try to cover them loosely with plastic overnight. If you forget, the plant will still survive, however any flowers in bloom are likely to discolor the existing leaves and kills buds. That's OK! Be patient and they will come back with a little TLC! The good news is you are guaranteed their beauty and continuing flowering throughout the summer months!
