CINCINNATI - The warmer weather on this first day of spring has prompted many folks to get a jump start in the garden.
Expert gardener Denny McKeown says the warmer weather is about a month ahead of schedule.
McKeown says his staff has received a lot of questions from shoppers wanting to know if it's a good time to get started in the garden.
"I would say go ahead and do what you would do normally do with this kind of weather conditions. The one thing I would not consider would be planting any annuals because mother nature has a way of evening things up," McKeown said.
McKeown says it may be a good idea to wait a month to start planting annuals.
It will give mother nature a chance to settle into spring with hopefully no chance of frost returning to kill your annuals.
