Q. I have packets of perennial seeds and live in area 9b. Can I plant now, or do I need to wait till next spring?

Can I safely plant these now before winter frost sets in or should I wait till next spring?

It depends on the plant in question. Each plant has its own requirement, so without know the exact plant seed that you intend to plant it will be hard to say when is best to plant. Usually, you can plant after the soil warms up in Spring for most plants, though some plants require cold to germinate.
