Discover the optimal timing for planting flowers to ensure successful growth and vibrant blooms.
Consult the frost-free dates for your region to determine when it's safe to start planting flowers outdoors.
Sow annual flower seeds or transplant seedlings after the last frost date to enjoy a season of colorful blooms.
Plant perennial flowers in the spring or fall, allowing them ample time to establish roots before extreme weather sets in.
Plant spring-flowering bulbs and tubers, such as tulips and dahlias, in the fall for stunning displays the following year.
Sow or transplant summer-blooming flowers, like marigolds and zinnias, in the spring after the danger of frost has passed.
Plant fall-blooming flowers, such as chrysanthemums and asters, in late spring or early summer to enjoy their colorful display in autumn.
Some hardy flowers, like pansies and violas, can be planted in late summer or early fall for winter color in mild climates.
