  • Pussy Willow Growth Rate

    Pussy Willow GrowthPussy Willow Growth

    Soon pussy willows, with their soft, touchable gray catkins, will be returning to the grocery stores and florists' shops. In my cold winter climate, those catkins won't show up outside for many, many weeks, but they are growing somewhere and merchandisers will be stocking up shortly to give us all a taste of spring.

  • June Gardening Tips For Zones 4 & 5

    Zones 4 & 5 June Gardening TipsJune is where summer makes her grand entrance, and gardeners everywhere are busy with what they love best...gardening!  There is still time to add a fresh landscape with a re-do of an overgrown one, or complete your planting for a new landscape plan done by our professionals.  Now is also a great time to plan for a new planting this fall, too.

    Now that the soils have warmed, it's a great time for the addition of a good organic layer of mulch to your planting beds for weed prevention and better soil moisture retention (2-3" layer).  Be very careful not to mound the mulch up around the trunks of trees, as it can kill the tree.  "Tree volcano's" are not good for trees or shrubs.
