Looking Forward to the First Blooms in Spring!

Helleborus 'Midnight Ruffles'Helleborus (Lenten Rose) can bloom as early as March!  It is the earliest blooming spring flower and usually blooms sometime during Lent.  After this long, cold and snowy winter, these little beauties are probably at least 12-18″ under the snow in my garden.  But not to worry – although we have had a lot of snow, the snow cover is keeping the plants under the ground at a constant temperature.   The snow is nature’s perfect blanket.

Narcissi 'Jetfire'Narcissus ‘Jetfire’ is a bright and welcome sight in the Spring.  ‘Jetfire’ is a smaller Narcissus, with narrow foliage. Narcissi 'Minnow'Narcissus ‘Minnow’ is another small and cheery daffodil!

Getting Ready for Spring!

It seems as though Spring will never come!  This has been the longest, snowiest and coldest winter in recent memory.  Some days it seems as though the snow will never melt.  However, Spring is actually not too far away.  If you are thinking longingly about Spring and Summer like I have, now is the time to consider making some changes to your garden, or creating a new garden!  If you’ve been frustrated with how your landscape looks, you may want to consider making some changes.  Many times just a few removals and additions can make all the difference!

New, heirloom and rare plants can be a new and exciting addition to your landscape.
