In my opinion, the last half of March is the best time to plant in the Atlanta/North Georgia area. We are generally past the time for any hard freezes and still early in the spring to allow for root growth to help the new plants get acclimated before the summer heat. At this time, all of the various types of plants should be planted, including the smaller perennials, etc.
Usually at this time you will also find the best selection of plants to choose from. The wholesale/retail outlets will have their largest selection of materials at this time of the year. The growers are completing their digging season and are shipping the fresh stock to the sellers.
