Is it too early to start gardening? “Mother Nature can still have surprises in store for us,” says Martha Laverdiere.

Mild weather and the first flowers starting to grow outside can encourage many to start gardening outside, but that's not necessarily a wise decision, says horticulturist and author Marthe Laverdiere.

“It's still winter until March 21. Anyone who thinks they can start dividing things or planting trees at this time of year, it's not the time. It's too early,” she says.

This states that the Earth is simply not warm enough.

“I know there has been no snow for three weeks, but the situation is exceptional this year. So, in case of exception, let us stick to the rule if we do not want to be taken seriously!”, declares Ms. Laverdiere.

“I know we are having an exceptional spring and people think we will be planting outside early, but Mother Nature can still have surprises in store for us,” she adds.

However, it is possible to start indoor gardening.

“It's time to start planting your seedlings, tomatoes, roses, peppers, celery… As for the basil and cabbage, we'll wait a little longer, two or two and a half weeks,” explains Martha Laverdiere.

As for squash, cucumbers and pumpkins, it is best to wait until the beginning of May, the gardener says.
