Planting Annuals - Knowledgebase Question

I live in Chicago and I have seen many people planting annuals already. I want to have mine in for a May 1 party, but I still think that's too early for planting with our crazy weather. Any suggestions?

I agree, it's just too early to be planting annuals. A cold snap will kill them overnight. You'd be surprised how much better your annuals will perform if you wait just two more weeks to plant them. I'd wait.
