Warmer Weather Helps Grow Excitement For Gardening

Warmer Weather Helps Grow Excitement For Gardening
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Many people are anxious to get outside and start planting in their gardens.

The Cliff Avenue Green House on 26th Street saw a big crowd Saturday afternoon.

With temperatures climbing in the 60s and 70s, some say they are ready for the warm weather and getting back to gardening.

"I'm very anxious. It just put me in a great mood and it changes my whole attitude. I look forward to this every year," Sara Clark said.

Experts say now it the time you can start to plant pansies or petunias and cold crop vegetables. 

"What's really going to take the chilliness at night and you don't have to worry about it is pansies and flowering kale petunias.  Some of them will tolerate it real well but the pansies… that's like your first sign you know it's spring is when you can plant pansies," store manager Heidi Teal said.

But it's a bit too early to plant tomatoes, peppers and squashes because they grow better in warmer ground and a warmer temperature.

"Some of this stuff is a little too tender to leave out yet. But if we get this for the next seven to 10 days that it's supposed to be warm and warmer nights it will make a world of difference," Teal said.
