"Spring is for Planting"
Although the Winter has been long and hard and we are anxious to get out in the garden, April still has a wide range of unstable weather changes. While it is fine to start planting most trees and shrubs, most perennials and annuals are just emerging and must be planted with caution. Remember, our freeze date is April 15 and our frost date is May 15. Planting before these dates can be dangerous to both your plants and your budget. -Tom and Nancee
