Understanding Plant Tags

 

 

 

  Spring is very near, which means it is time to get to your local garden center to make your plant purchases. As customers flock to garden centers, employees do their best to help everyone, yet it can be hard due to the influx of people. To make it easier for customers, information tags describing growing requirements hang from most plants. However, it can still be difficult to determine what all of the information means. To answer your questions about plant tags before making your purchases, click here.

New Ideas

 

With the arrival of Spring comes, along with it comes Mother's Day, Father's Day and plenty of birthdays.  If you are looking for a new gift idea, we suggest giving an admission to one of our upcoming classes or a membership to the gardens to special people in your life, whether they are avid gardeners or timid beginners.   

 

 

 

If you enjoy The Garden View and would like additional information during this spring season, you can find us on Facebook under the name: The Gardens.  We hope to see you there!
