Get out in the garden with this amazing weather!

Who would have thought that the weather would continue to be so amazing!  I woke up yesterday morning expecting to start my car to defrost it, but to my surprise it was already 10 degrees at 6:30 in the morning!  What an amazing way to start the early spring/spring season!  With this beautiful weather comes so much more motivation to get those things you have been yearning to do on your yard throughout the winter done!  So get out there and do it!  If you have any questions, we have some great knowledgeable staff for all your different gardening needs...

Hanging baskets are constantly being planted for your spring enjoyment.  Your moss baskets are all planted up and starting to be hung around the greenhouses.  They are looking amazing this year!  We do have some availability...so call us now to place and order or to add on to your existing order:).

PLANT OF THE WEEK

'LUCAS' GOLDEN HINOKI CYPRESS (Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Lucas') - If you looked out at your garden this past winter and thought, "Boring . . . ", a solution may be the newest compact group of conifers.  Lucas will be only 2 - 3' tall at maturity, perfect for urban gardens.  Delicate, fern-like, lacy sprays in that magic colour, lime green, add wonderful interest throughout the year, especially in the months of Nov. - Feb.  Excellent in containers or the garden bed.  Full Sun, Zone 4.  Limited quantity available.

Garden Tip

"WE'RE HUNGRY'

If you keep perennials/shrubs/trees in containers all year round, now is the time to give them some food.  They will have used up most of the available nutrients in the container by now and need more to keep growing this year.  Just add a 1" layer of either compost or Sea Soil on top of the existing soil, being careful not to pile it up against the main stem, which might promote rotting when wet.  Every time it rains, or you add water, the nutrients will travel to the roots.  The reward? Healthy, vibrant bodacious plants that will delight you all year!

That is a quick update for you!  be sure to stay tuned as spring comes closer and closer!
