Planting Season
Is Here! 

This weekend is the "last frost" date for our area (traditional Mother's Day), so time to get planting! The spring planting season is usually from Mother's Day to the end of June. The fall planting season is usually from the beginning of Sept through end of October. (Yes, I said "usually" because Mother Nature can always change the temperatures anytime. Think of the "spring" weather we had in February this year!)

Plant Sales are in full force! Here are a few local resources — some support great local organizations while offering you a variety of plants you may not find in a regular nursery.
