(WHSV) - As temperatures are getting warmer, you may be tempted to start gardening but we still have some time before it’s safe to do so in our area.

Arlene Reid, owner of Glenhaven Greenhouses said you’ll want to wait until at least the beginning of may to begin gardening but if you want to start growing plants now, there are some things you can do.

“Realize that although you have a warm day, you need to just wait a bit or be prepared if you want to plant. Go ahead and put them in a little larger container and move them in and out at night until you can actually get them in the garden. They’ll still grow but you can certainly control them,” said Reid.

Reid also said to pay attention to where you live as low temperatures can vary even up to 10 degrees across the area.
