Heather's Helpful Hint

Early Spring Planting
January 04, 2010

Early spring is an ideal time to plant trees, shrubs, many perennials, and even some cool weather annuals. With cool temperatures and plenty of rain, success is almost guaranteed if you plant properly using the soil amendments needed for your specific selections.
Be careful to protect anything with tender blossoms and emerging growth from freezing nighttime temperatures. Fluctuation in temperature is not unusual this time of year so be mindful of forecasted drops in degrees. Just grab a bed sheet from your linen closet and secure it over your tender plants. Remove the sheet as daytime temperatures allow.

By early to mid May, the danger of frost will have ended and you will be able to plant whatever you wish without worry. After a long snowy winter, I can’t wait!
