Spring is finally here!

Today is the Vernal Equinox....the first day of spring in the Northern Hemisphere.

So....I have some gardening questions for those of you who are more plant savy than I

1) how do you get a Kalanchoe to bloom agian?

2) The general rule of thumb is not to plant any flowers till may 24 weekend, but are there any hardy half sun or shade plants that will survive if it frosts or snows again that I can plant early? (more specifically things like panseys)

3) If they need to be potted early, with the weenie bit of light I do get (im on the northwest corner of the building) when is the best time to get them started? I have a greenhouse, but I would prefer to keep those plants as indoor as much as possible (mostly spiderplants, an aloe, and a kalanchoe)

I can't help, I'm really sorry - our growing conditions are so different to yours.
