Supplement your tried-and-true garden favorites with a few new plants this season.

Deb Wiley

Now is the perfect time to dream about the upcoming growing season. And as you’re imagining a verdant scene where there might still be snow, consider trying a few new-for-2017 varieties. Sow these seeds directly into your garden soil or start plants inside to transplant when all risk of frost is gone. If you don’t know your frost-free date, check with your local extension service.
