LA CROSSE, Wis. - The recent warm weather has people itching to get started on the spring planting season, but it's still a little too early.
La Crosse Floral says people have already started buying for the planting season.
However, the only thing to consider right now is planting in pots, something that can be moved inside if the weather gets cold like it's supposed to this week.
They also say not to worry about how late it's getting in the season because most plants will catch up.

"If we all listen to the old fashioned farmers almanac, for people younger they may have never heard of that, 10th-15th of May can still be something called Iceman Days, you can get a freeze, not a frost you can get a freeze, so usually when we get past the 10th of May or so, you're good to go," said La Crosse Floral President Linda Zoerb.
Zoerb also says they are still finding ice in the ground on the north and east side of some homes. If that's the case with your home, it's a good idea to turn up the soil so the ice will melt faster.
