When can I plant for spring?
We suggest waiting to plant annuals once temperatures have reached above 50 and 60 degrees, this way the soil is thawed and your plants have room to grow. However, there are early blooming annuals that can be outside prior, like pansies and violas. A popular time in Minnesota to plant annuals is around the end of May.
