Simply Spring

“The Season’s Best” celebration of spring
Take a stroll through our colorful greenhouse! Starting in mid April we’re stocked to the brim with custom containers, hanging baskets, fountains, statuary, wrought iron planters, tropicals and everything else a garden-lover can imagine. It’s time to come out of hibernation and be reminded of the warm sensation of a kiss from the spring sun.

Quick Tips

Spring is a great time to add new plants to your garden. Be sure, however, that all threat of frost has past. Plant such things as trees, shrubs, hardy annuals, and summer blooming bulbs. Fertilize and mulch beds and borders. Spring is also a good time to fertilize fruit trees. If you applied heavy winter mulch for protection from the cold, you will need to clear it away. Stake plants that may be prone to wind damage during the unpredictable spring weather. Spring is the best time to start a new lawn from seed. For established lawns, you should start mowing in the spring, but don’t initially cut the grass very short for the first few times. Of course, be sure to take in to account such factors as when the threat of frost has past or when the ground is thawed enough to dig.
