April is the first full month of spring in the garden and if you have just gotten outside, you have probably discovered that many of your plants have begun to grow. Don't let that allow you to make the mistake of planting annuals (except cool weather annuals like pansies, primrose and ranunculus) just yet. Wait until the danger of frost has ended, usually about Mother's Day.
It is advantageous, however to plant perennials, flowering shrubs, vines, and any deciduous or evergreen trees. The weather is ideal for laying sod and patching bare areas by over-seeding and starting new lawns with seed.
You can safely transplant all hardy plants at this time without the stress that summer brings. The watering needs will be less and it is easier to work in these moderate temperatures than in the heat and humidity that inevitably comes.
We are just beginning to fill our outdoor departments with plants. The very cold dreary winter set us back a few weeks but the delightful April weather is changing everything quickly. This is an ideal time to make frequent visits to Waterloo Gardens as inventory increases every week. Don't miss the many colorful plants that arrive almost daily and talk to one of our excited sales associates about your spring garden!
