Over the years I have been asked on numerous occasions “When is the best time to plant?” But in order to answer this correctly, I must know if you are installing annuals, perennials, shrubs or trees. Everyone has heard from their grandparents that the rule of thumb for summer annuals is not to plant them before Mother’s Day. In my experience, I feel that even that is too early and advise installing summer annuals closer to Memorial Day to avoid the risk of frost. Anytime the ground is workable, meaning not frozen and the temperature is above freezing, you can install most perennials, shrubs and trees. Since summer planting is not the greatest idea, the question now becomes “spring or fall?”
