The air is beginning to warm, and one can almost smell the onset of spring. For now, all our plants are cozy in their winter protection — mulched in with leaves and pine needles. In a few weeks, we will begin uncovering them in the delightful process of discovering what has made it through this crazy whacky winter.
Sometimes plants in containers above ground succumb to repeated freeze thaw cycles – of which we’ve had more than our share! Sometimes rodents destroy them. We uncover the plants one-by-one and carefully assess their conditions.
Until May and even June, many perennials will show little above ground growth. We hand-pull lots of chickweed and oxalis and check the crown and roots of each plant for vigor. We will not release a plant for sale until we know it will thrive in your garden.
Adam, Toni, Brian, Denise, and MaryEllen spend several weeks uncovering and checking the plant and getting the nursery ship-shape with walkable aisles, plants on display, and signage to help you make your selections.
If weather allows us to make plants available to you before April 3, we will announce it here, on Facebook, Twitter, and in the newsletter we send out to our subscribers.
Till then, enjoy the last days of winter. We hope to see you very soon.
