For those that use the fridge for dormancy to protect your plants from long freezes, when do you bring the plants outside in the spring? In Missouri, we are still seeing some nights dip below freezing but they days are getting into the 40's and 50's F. Right now I'm thinking about planting my them outside some time mid March but I'm a little worried about the frost we might have even up until April.

They'll be able to cope with light frosts, but late March sounds like a good time. Spring tends to get going a bit more after the equinox.

I think for where you're at Twigs, you should be able to take your plants out mid march like march 15 and on..
