The correct planting time comes down to what you want to plant. If, for example, you want to grow frost-tender plants such as marigolds or geraniums then you must wait until the last frost warning is over for your area--probably around early May. If, however, you are planting shrubs and trees, the best time is when the weather is still cool and moist in the early spring. It also comes down to what condition your soil is in. If it's still soggy and cold from the winter, you might want to wait till the soil dries out and warms up a bit. If you are planting vegetables, cool weather plants such as lettuce and spinach can be planted now, but wait until your frost date is over before you plant tender things such as tomatoes and peppers.
