Hi Destinip.
Being in the southern part of the state, you may have a few frosts yet to come, but you can start with the hardier plants like petunias, pansies and snap dragons and also some of the hardier perennials. You will want to wait until early April for the more tender plants. Vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, lettuce, cabbage, carrots and peas can go in the ground now. Talk to the folks at the nursery...they can give you good info on what can go in the ground now.

This link has tons of info for planting in your area.
