FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – As the weather begins to get warmer, people look forward to planting flowers in their yards.
The month of April often contains mixed weather consisting of both warm and cool days. This means it’s important for people to know what they can grow now and which flowers they have to wait to grow.
Fort Wayne gardening expert and educator Ricky Kemery spoke with WANE 15 to share tips for people planting flowers for the season.
“April is not the best month for planting flowers for the year typically,” Kemery said. “With many flowers like petunias, you will have to wait until around May 10 to plant those.”
He said right now many garden centers will be offering cool season flowers like pansies that can be put in containers or in the ground to change out later on.
“Personally, I get impatient or frustrating at a garden center sometimes because there are things I want to plant now, but I have to wait a bit longer until the official growing season starts,” he said.
