After all chance of frost which if I recall in zone 5 is mid May sometime. You should be able to find out your local last frost date online easily to be sure. Then check the forecast to make sure no late frosts predicted over the coming week and plant them.

If you don't mind covering them in case of late frost then you can plant them 7-10 days before the last frost date but the risk increases.
