In respect to this, is it too early to plant annuals?
For these heat-loving annuals, planting too early can pronounce a death sentence as chilly air and cool soil causes plants to stall or even rot. The ideal time to plant is on a cloudy day. This protects newly planted annuals from having sun stress seedlings as they're settling into their new digs.
how warm does it need to be to plant annuals? Tender annuals, also called true annuals, have no tolerance for frost and must be planted in the spring when nighttime temperatures are above 55 degrees, when all danger of frost is past. Plants that fall into this category include: Impatiens (Impatiens balsamina), USDA zones 2 through 11.
Correspondingly, when Should flowers be planted?
Most flowers should be planted after your region's last frost date. Spring is the most popular time to plant, but perennials do fine if planted in early fall in the North and late fall in the South.
How deep do you plant annuals?
Generally speaking, annuals fall into three main categories, which determine when and where you should sow their seeds. For all categories, a good rule of thumb is to plant seeds at a depth of two or three times their diameter.
