After spending the early days of spring getting soil ready for planting, it's finally time to transplant seedlings to the ground.

What kind of gardner are you? Take this quiz!

Before putting anything in the ground, know how each plant deals with slightly cooler or warmer temperatures. If you sow too early, the cold ground and air will stunt growth. A late frost could even lead to a plant's death. If you sow too late, you'll miss out on some of those crucial and limited days for growth.

To best gage the ideal time for planting, learn the date of your area's last frost, which you can find in the Farmer's Almanac or by asking any experienced gardener in your area.
