When is the best time to plant?
Believe it or not, Spring isn’t always the answer, although it is frequently one of the answers. Plants are broadly categorized into two categories, warm season and cool season, that denote whether they grow best when the temperatures are warm/hot, or when the temperatures are cool/moderate.
Warm Season: Warm season loosely refers to the spring and summer. Typically warm season plants are planted in from March to June and August to October. These plants are not frost tolerant and will either have slow growth or stop all together during cool/cold weather.
Cool Season: Cool season loosely refers to the fall and winter. Typically cool season plants are planted between September 15 to December 31. These plants are frost tolerant or tolerant of cool temperatures, which means they prefer to grow when the temperatures are moderate to cool.
