The answer to your question depends on what you are planting. Hardy perennials, trees and shrubs can be planted very early in the spring, as can early season vegetables such as potatoes, peas, and spinach as well as strawberry and other fruit plants. Many flowering annuals such as impatiens and some vegetables such as tomatoes require a warmer soil and will not tolerate any frost at all.
