Flowers have arrived…and we’re waiting….

Traditionally, most of the annuals are planted during the week of the IPGA event.  However, we must wait until next week when the forecast looks a little more promising.

It’s hard to believe but yes, that is a picture of fallen snow taken the morning of May 16th.  We’ve received 3+” of rain this week.  To top it off we get snow and lows in the 30’s!  We need some sunshine. All of our flowers have arrived (see below).  We plan to have all the beds planted and topped with mushroom compost by the end of next week (weather permitting). 

You would be wise to cover all your plants tonight and tomorrow due to the low temperatures.  If you have already planted them, I recommend that you cover them with plastic sheathing.
