When to plant pansy?

Pansies are planted during cool spring or fall months. Pansies prefer sites that provide full, direct morning sun, yet shield them from intense afternoon rays. Well-drained, fertile soil that's high in organic matter helps fuel abundant pansy blooms.

Against this background, when can you plant pansies outside?

You will know it's time to plant pansies in the fall season when soil temperatures are between 45 and 70 degrees F. (7-21 C.). Premature planting when temperatures are too warm will make the plant turn yellow and leave it vulnerable to frost damage or pest and disease infestation.
