Moody Gardens

Before planting this spring, think of what emotions and feelings you want the garden to project. While this may sound a bit New Age, colors in the garden can impact our feelings. Want to create a retreat where one can relax and unwind after a busy day? Use the cool shades of blue, delicate pinks, rose and lilac or creamy white. Need a jolt in the morning to get you moving? Try hot colors like bright orange, vivid reds and radiant yellows and purples to cheer you up and get you started for a great day.

How late can you plant in Zone 7

As long as the plants are fully hardy for your zone and your soil is not frozen, you can plant at ANY time during the winter months. While it doesn't get quite as cold in winter as zone 8, I have still installed a complete landscape in mid-December, just hours before the temps plummeted to the teens and stayed there for a week. Never lost a plant.
