You want to wait until the soil warms up. The easiest way (and this will sound a bit odd) is when you can stick your hand or finger all the way into the soil and keep it there for the count of 10. If the soil is still too cold, you will not be able to do it.

Typically the soil will be warm enough around the time that night time temps regularly stay above 50F.
