Can you start planting gardens in Iowa now that it’s warm?

The temperature is warming up in Iowa, but does that mean you should pick up your trowel and get in the garden?

Iowa experienced record-breaking warmth in February, reaching up to 78 degrees, according to the National Weather Service. The weather doesn’t look to be taking another downward spike away from spring-like temperatures, either.

Most Iowans start their gardens in late April, and some even wait until after Mother’s Day. But warmer temperatures in Iowa are making some gardeners ask: Is it time to start gardening yet?

While Iowa weather is unpredictable, experts say to keep an eye on dropping temperatures and to stick with hardy plants, at least for now.
