Your average last frost date is about the 4th week of May. If you plant your hostas and coral bells outdoors now you should be prepared to cover them if an overnight frost is predicted. Since these are small plants you can simply pile compost or straw over the tops of the plants or drape a sheet over them. Be sure to remove the protection in the morning when the temperatures rise. Enjoy your garden!
