Plant It in February

Plant in the winter for early spring starts

It´s February and depending on your region, the first snowdrops, crocus, and daffodils are beginning to flower. To get a jump start on the growing season, consider sowing the following seeds outside or starting tender annuals inside. Many summer flowering plants can be divided and transplanted now if the soil in your area is workable.
