We have been blessed with this beautiful week of Spring in March!!! The surprises the land is offering up, after a bitter cold February, are amazing!!!! Today's gem of a day kept me very busy!!!! I finished potting up my dahlias, transplanted seedlings. Worked on today's flower orders, then headed to the gardens. I am working on transplanting perennial's that love to spread, so I am moving them to gardens that can do that! I planted a few cool season crops... it will be interesting to see how they do next week. But I will give them extra protection and of course the goal is an early season! I will be discussing this years garden experiments this summer during the garden tours and classes....
Just when I thought I was near the end of pussy willows I found a new Amazing patch! Loaded with the plumpest most beautiful pussy willows. They are available in a nosegay bouquet, perfect for gift giving.
The warmth has finally started popping the daffodils . The smaller mini daffodils start , and as long as it's not bitter cold we should have a new variety opening weekly. Included in the end of March specials are forsythia, euphorbia, lavender greenery ,pussy willow, forsythia, mini daffodils and a sprig of cherry blossoms. The upgraded special also includes, tulips and hellebore. All beautiful spring blooms . Because I have been forcing many of the blooms indoors I have a limited quantity, so when they are gone they are gone until we get more warmth and some needed rain for stem length. My recommendation is ordering now as the quantities listed are it for this week and next. Choose your day for front porch pick up.
Before long the gardens will be ablaze with an abundance of color and flowers. Hope you will join us for a garden tour, or check out our CSA options, you can choose, weekly, biweekly or monthly flowers, or watch for our weekly specials. I am booking private garden tours and classes now. They can be booked with a group of 6 or more, June is booking up quickly. July thru Oct have openings. Public classes will be posted as the summer approaches, and as time allows.
Hope you will join me in the gardens, lots of new surprises..... Think Spring! Happy Gardening! Brenda
