Spring garden planting guide
In March, planting guides are still plentiful. Spring plants are bursting out of pots, some ready to plant while others need to be re-pot. We've rounded up all the plants you'll need to succeed in spring garden planting.
Most annuals are compact plants. These compact plants usually have shorter heights but require less space to thrive. To keep this in mind, think about how you are going to space your garden beds, and how big you want each bed to be. When trying to choose a plant for this space, you’ll want to focus on a plant that will grow very compactly.
Mild or heat tolerant
Some annuals can thrive in temperatures in the high 20’s F, as well as temperatures that are extreme. Knowing that you will want your plant to thrive in these temperatures can help you find a plant for your garden that is perfect for your region. These heat and cold tolerant plants will grow regardless of the climate.
