Signs of Spring

The signs of Spring are starting to pop up.  The crocus are out and it won’t be long until the tulips and daffodils start to join them.

It’s time to buy your seeds for cool weather crops and plants.  Things like radish, peas, spinach, lettuce, kale and other greens can be planted in another couple of weeks.  Buy them now so you have them in time and to make sure there is a good selection of what you want.

If you’re in doubt what to plant when your local garden center should have a list of what you can plant and the dates you can start them indoors and out.

There are annual plant seeds you can plant as well including bachelor buttons, pansies, and larkspur  Sprinkle them on the ground or put them in a pot.  Gently press them into the soil (not too deep).  If you put them in a pot remember to bring them into the garage if it’s going to freeze.

Still want to do thing indoors?  Think about doing a terrarium or a dish garden like we discussed a couple of weeks ago.  The local garden center should also be getting in their daffodils and tulips in the pots so you could have some color indoors for a few days and then you’ll have some bulbs to plant for next year as well.

Spring is coming.  Get crackin’.

Happy Gardening and Happy Spring!!
