We’ve just received a new shipment of beautiful pansies – perfect for adding some winter color to your beds and planters. Remember to add some calcium nitrate as this is the best fertilizer to give them when the soil is cold. It will be warming up next week, so plan on getting them soon while the supplies are good!
What a gloomy week it looks like we’re in store for – but, on the bright side, temperatures will be warming up, making it a good time to get outside between rain showers. A lot of you have been putting down fresh pine straw since all the leaves are off the trees. Our rolls of pine straw are pretty – and remember we deliver too.
Now is the time also to cut back dead foliage from perennials and get on top of any winter weeds in your garden beds that may be coming up between pansys. Resolve to take a walk through your landscape once a week to do this – it’s good exercise! While you’re out, do take time to enjoy the little things – a new bloom on a pansy, the swelling buds of spring blooming shrubs, the foliage of an emerging daffodil – we promise you’ll feel better after a “tour” around the yard if you stop to enjoy it once in a while too!
Another “Best Of” poll is out…this one in Village Living. If you think we’re “Best” for your hobby, vote for us or perhaps write us in for friendliest service – Thanks!!! (And by the way, we think you’re the best!)
