Spring Plantings in Pacific North West
You have an extended window of time, there is no critical “plant by” day to worry about in the spring although planting should be finished by late spring/early summer and as a general rule earlier is better. We tend to want to plant as early as possible, and we see those colorful flowers for sale and can’t resist getting started. But if you transplant too early, you may lose your flowers to frost or a freeze, so be cautious. Some years, planting time runs earlier and some years later, it depends on the weather.
