I want to plant a flower garden in my back yard with mostly perennials and I need to know the best time of year for planting.

Perennials that are bare root are planted in early spring so they can come out of dormancy with the season. Perennials sold in pots can be planted any time the ground is not frozen or too wet, but they are best planted in early spring or early fall. Mid-summer is the most stressful time to plant because it is so hot.
