Annuals - Usually annuals are planted after the last frost date which is around Mothers Day. Be prepared to protect them with a floating row cover if frost is predicted. https://extension.umd.edu/hgic/topics/annuals

Plant late summer or fall-flowering perennials in the spring and spring-flowering perennials in late summer or early fall. However, it is wise to check exact planting dates for specific perennials. https://extension.umd.edu/hgic/topics/perennials
