Can you start planting now that it’s officially spring?

Weather News

In the last couple of weeks, the snow has been disappearing in the Springfield area but that’s not the case everywhere, especially in the hilltowns.

“Looking forward to getting the rake out and start raking. When I left home this morning it was only 32 so the snow is still there and a lot of it,” said Ronald Brewster of Montgomery.

But if the snow is gone from your yard you can start cleaning up your lawn and getting your garden ready.

“You can start planting pansies in a week or two depending on the weather. It’s all weather inducive, once it starts getting in the high 20s, lower 30s at night you’re fine to start planting perennials and pansies,” said Chris Graziano of Graziano Gardens in East Longmeadow.

There are some things you can put in the ground right now. You can plant bushes and shrubs.

You can also start growing plants inside so you can take them outside and put them in your garden when the weather warms up.
