I'm waiting when I can start to sow salad, beetroot, celery, dill and parsley. I think to do this as soon as the ground reaches 6 C. The same goes for hardy annual flower seeds. If the soil is still cold I usually lay a covering cloth or plastic pieces over sown seeds. Last year my sowing were successful:

My seedlings, cuttings and tubers starting inside on the windowsill are big and I will transport them in the conservatory. The gladioli bulbs are potted and started sprouting. Also I have several varieties of begonias. Their tubers were stored in cool place and now begonias have big leaves. That's a problem to transport them to the garden!
Three small cuttings of a rose The Fairy have grown at home too, one of them is in bloom now.
At the end of April - first days of May I remove the covering cloth off the rose bushes and other tender plants. I do feeding them and continue to do so during May. In addition, I try to make the pruning of vines and Canadian roses. This is liana Actinidia, it has many crossing branches and of course it is to be pruned.
There is no snow at all but my pond is still frozen. I tried to break the ice, but it's too lasting, and I was afraid to damage the liner. When ice melts my next thing is to do cleanup around the pond, then sprouts of daffodils will be seen. And to take the time for the pond maintenance (water balance) because the water is awful after winter.
I have some tubers of Dahlias, that had been stored at home. The tubers sprouted and have leaves. Now is a perfect time when they could be replanted into the ground or in tubs.
It was a surprise when I had opened a door of the greenhouse. The last days were warm and sunny, there was warm air in the greenhouse as well, bulbs potted last autumn got started to flower. Here are irises and pushkinias:
