Gardeners just can’t seem to get a break this spring. First, it was a late start to the growing season with cool, rainy weather and not a lot of sunshine. And now deer are causing problems.
Keep an eye on those annuals and perennials. Plant thieves took flowers and hanging baskets from a home in the Linden Hills neighborhood on Tuesday night. Jeanne Long said she lost more than $500 worth of plants and pots.
For the Twin Cities, the cold and rainy weather has dramatically slowed landscaping and gardening projects. Whether it’s a major patio project, or planting a home garden, everything seems to be a month behind.
Not everything you plant in your garden this spring has to be colorful. Some plants stand out because they are edible. And nothing compares to the fragrance and flavor of fresh herbs. WCCO stepped into a garden center’s Edible House.
Over the weekend, when it wasn’t raining, you may have spent some time in your garden, planting flowers. Or maybe just getting the soil ready for what you will plant. It is a sea of colors at Leitner’s Garden Center in St. Paul, a look that many of us would love to replicate in our yards.
The beautiful displays of color are what brighten our gardens and our spirit. We plant the bulbs in the fall and then wait with anticipation for their debut in the spring.
The long winter has meant frozen lakes, iced-over garden beds and many questions about when we can put the spade to dirt and start planting the garden.
Mix Master John Williams “Jskillz,” put this together just for you today! Happy Spring!
Many of us will open up our wallets to send a token of our love on Valentine’s Day.
