What Can I Plant - Knowledgebase Question

Middletown, De
Question by susancline

My house is listed for sale and my realtor is bugging me to get some color in my garden. Short of planting everything in containers that I can move indoors each night, what can I plant this early in the season and have survive? I live in Middletown, DE and estimate that I am in the southern part of my region. I hate to spend money on plants that may not survive a cold snap.

There are some colorful cool season plants that will be safe to include in your garden now. Primroses, pansies, stock, snapdragons, ornamental kale and cabbage are all hardy enough to go into the garden now. Best wishes with the sale.
