LEE COUNTY, GA (WALB) – While the weather is wet and cool today, it will soon be Spring and many South Georgians will want to get outside.

Many of them will be putting on the gloves and getting into the garden. Local garden centers are a bit slow now with some people concerned about frost, but gardening pros say that the key is to get plants that are resistant to the cold.

Richard Spencer of Destinations in Gardening said, "it's a good time for ferns, you can come in and get Kimberly Queen ferns that don't mind a little cold."

Gardening experts say that if you're not quite sure whether to plant or not, you can always check with them for help.
