Marianne Binetti: It's warm-up time for gardeners

The end of April means the start of the warm-season garden. It may still be too early to set out heat-loving plants such as tomatoes, geraniums and marigolds, but you can continue to seed cool-season carrots, lettuce, kale, radish and cabbage into the vegetable garden. In your flower garden, add flowering vines such as clematis and roses and all types of shrubs, from evergreen conifers to fully blooming rhododendrons, and from fragrant lilacs to ground-hugging heathers.
