When Is The Best Time To Start Planting Spring Flowers?

Spring time is here again, and with all of the nice weather, many have already started to begin working in their gardens.

However, the cold and frost in some parts of Eastern Carolina overnight was a reminder that there is still some cold weather left before the warmth is here to stay. So when is the right time to plant?

A Lowes Nursery Specialist in Greenville says the right time depends on what you want to plant.

Manooch says that perennials and annuals, as well as the trees and shrubs, are the strongest types of plants, which can survive late winter frosts like last night's.
