Local experts tell you what you should do now, in spite of the cold weather.
It doesn’t feel like spring. Last week’s snow made it seem like warm weather might never arrive, so planting a garden might be the last thing on your mind.

"It depends on the landscape beds you have and whether or not you’re planning to put in a vegetable garden," he said.
