Warm-Season Vegetable Plants and Annuals. We’re nearing our region’s final frost date of April 15th, so now is the time to purchase warm-season annual ornamentals and vegetables to put in the ground after any chance of late frost. The ornamental and vegetable crop section at Gardens of Babylon is really popping-off right now, and we’re most excited for the giant heirloom tomato plants and hanging petunia baskets.
