NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) - Many people enjoyed warm weather on Monday, and while that may make some gardeners anxious for spring planting you might not want to plant your flowers quite yet.

Although you can begin planting flowers in your yard, it is advised that you wait until late April or early May. In the meantime, there is plenty of prepping to be done. Right now is the perfect time to be fertilizing your lawn. Don’t forget to also water your lawn often after laying fertilizer down.

It’s also a great time to be helping eliminate weeds before they begin to grow. Tomatoes, bell peppers and other vegetables also need to wait a little longer to be planted. The best months to plant these are near the end of May or the beginning of June.

The weather is always changing and people could still see a freeze, so you will want to wait on planting flowers in your yard.
