The calendar said spring arrived weeks ago. However, it remained on the cool side until this week. We have had some rain the last few days which has resulted in a flush of new growth. The plants which were experiencing the winter malaise have livened up. There is new growth and the plants are much greener and healthier. If we continue with these spring thunderstorms, it will definitely mark an early beginning to the rainy season.
This is a great time to plant. However, I would hold off for another 6 weeks before moving any in ground plants. If you intend to move plants which are in the ground, start the root pruning process now, and wait 6 to 8 weeks before you actually move them. Finally, if you haven’t applied your spring fertilizer, now is the time to do it.
Please feel free to drop by the nursery to check out what’s blooming and get ideas to landscape your yard. We are open every day except Thursdays from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm.
