Here's the Scoop!
February 20th, 2014
The primrose, like the one pictured here, are a sure sign spring is coming. Their bright blooms are a sure pick-me-up on even the gloomiest of days.
This week more beautiful blooming pansies arrived too (just in time to freshen tired planters), another touch of spring in a pot!
For any of you who want to kill weed seeds that will be germinating in your lawn with the warmer weather, now is the time to apply pre-emerge. Be sure to water it in well after applying.
Take a look around the greenhouse if you stop in for pansies,  primroses and herbs; the flowers, foliage and succulents are amazing. Look HERE for a post on our staghorn ferns, and, while you're on the website, take a look at our Quick-Pick Veggie class March 15th. If you're interested, give us a call at 870-7542 to sign up.
With this week's warmer temperatures, it's a little easier to get out in the garden and take care of late winter tasks. Look HERE for a few things that need to be done this time of year.
Finally, if you are in need of boxwood advice, we recommend Dave Bradford, formerly of the Jefferson County Extension Service - he is a well respected authority on the subject.
Have a great weekend and we'll see you soon!
