This is the time of year when eager gardeners want to get planting. The perennials are up, some are already flowering. These are considered “hardy” plants and can withstand late spring frosts and snow. Most of the beautifully blooming bedding plants and overflowing flowering container plants we grow as annuals. Many of these are called “tender” and have little or no tolerance to frost.
