Bloomin' News March 5,2020 Edition
Well, it’s too soon, but we can’t stop spring from coming early this year. My Daffodils are up, a few Crocus, and all the Fall Crocus foliage. The ground did not get a hard freeze this winter. We’ll see what happens, as we know winter isn’t over yet.
 
I got started in the greenhouse, which is always the best remedy for any winter blues. Warm, humid air is such a welcome change. It won’t be long before the rows of plants reach for any sun we get. This year, we have lots of Begonias and Coleus, as well as favorite returnees like Canna and Rudbeckia. I think it will be a fun palette as they all fill in.
 
Planting days and spring events will be here before we know it. Mark your calendars now:

Looking forward to another bloomin’ great season!
