Spring is so close!

Ahhh! It is so nice to be back at the Nursery. I can already smell spring in the air! Things are starting to liven up around here. Great new garden décor and supplies are filling up the Gift shop. The greenhouse is on and ready for the girls to start pluggin’ away on all of the new plant inventory. The tree and shrub beds are getting prepped and our rock bins are filling up with some gorgeous new stone. Don’t forget our Landscape department! They are here and ready to design the perfect outdoor space for your home. We have decided that if 2018 is anything like 2017, than we are in for a wild ride!

So to get 2018 off to a good start, we have some tips to get your garden/landscape beds ready for the new planting season.
*Now is the time to start general clean-up and re-mulching of your flower/garden beds.
*Cut back any ornamental grasses from the season before
*Fertilize- Put down your first application of fertilizer/crabgrass preventer. We carry a line of Ultimate brand fertilizers and weed controls that are easy to apply.
*When temps are above 40 degrees and before bud break, apply a Dormant Oil to your trees and shrubs to kill any overwintering insects and scale. You can use a product such as Bonide All Seasons Spray Oil.
*Transplant any shrubs you may want moved before bud break if the ground is workable
*Draw out a plan for your garden for all of the delicious veggies you want to grow
*Now is a great time to get your pepper and tomato plants started inside. We have a great selection of seeds and seed starting supplies available in the store.

Take these tips and get outside in the fresh air and get those hands a bit dirty! Your gardens, trees and shrubs will reward you as the season goes on! 2018 is going to be a great year. I can just feel it!!
For any other questions, feel free to give us a call or stop by the Nursery to let us help you!
