Spring is here!
And we have a lot to choose from to color up your Easter weekend.
Please remember that it is still a little early to plant your tomatoes and other vegetables with out taking the chance that a late frost will kill them.
However you can plant bedding plants like petunias, dianthus, wave petunias, ageratum, alyssum, marigolds, lantana, dahlias, snapdragons and a bunch of other annuals. You can also plant perennials, trees and shrubs. If we do get a late frost, it may “bite” the plants (that means kill the bloom or new growth; they will turn brown or black), but you can clean them off and the plants should survive. If we get a late hard freeze, you will need to protect your plants with a sheet, blanket or bucket as best you can. A hard freeze of 28 degrees or less will cause significant damage or will kill most plants that are not established.
