It's been a long winter, and many Sheridan residents are eager to get into their gardens. But University of Wyoming Extension Educator Scott Hininger says don't break out those spades and trowels just yet.
The extension educator says it isn't too early to start planning your garden. And seeds can be started in the house. But he said most vegetables should stay indoors until around the middle of April.
Jessica Bohnsack at Landon's Greenhouse and Nursery agreed. And even mid-April may be too soon if temperatures remain cold.
The university extension educator said perennial flowering plants can be planted outdoors as soon as the ground is soft enough to make a hole for them – provided the plants are dormant. Annual flowers should remain indoors until mid-May.
