You won't want to shock your indoor plants with cold air temperatures so wait until it's at least 50F degrees outdoors before you start taking them out. Ivy is pretty sturdy so it can be the first to go out, but anything with tropical foliage should remain indoors until the weather warms up. Lots of shrubs are available in the garden centers and they can all be safely planted outdoors, even in the cold early spring weather. Enjoy your garden!
