One, two, plant a shoe

After 20 years of wearing a pair of clogs around the garden, one person has officially retired them from active service. But, throwing them away was not the ideal choice. They could be served in a whole different way. They can serve a totally different function than just being worn on feet. Putting plants in them is a great option.

Three Expert Steps To Assess Your Spring Landscape

There are 3 expert steps to assessing your Spring landscape. The first thing you need to do is look for damage and then make a list. Then, once you have a list, you will need to make a plan. The third thing you need to so is respond with proper actions. Once the damage is done, you need to respond properly.

Key Takeaways:

  • This time of year is hard on gardeners and garden lovers because we are itching for some color in the garden and warmth on our backs and faces.
  • Start by assessing your landscape to get yourself prepped for all the work and beauty to come.
  • If you’re a DIYer, then the list will include time in the garden. If you’ve hired a landscape company to help, then handing them a list will speed up the corrective actions.

Short Tulips: A Garden Fairy Tale

Short tulips are a garden fairy tale. One woman called Granny Gus McGarden packed her lunch and began her journey from the Vegetable Garden Cathedral to Neighbor’s View. She also took a shortcut through Plopper’s field and walked straight past the Lilac Muddle in order to reach her final destination.

Key Takeaways:

  • Sure enough, when she got there, she saw several tulips, which by her reckoning should have been at least a foot tall if not taller, blooming down low.
  • I think it was that warm spell we had in February, followed by that cold spell in March. I think it confused the tulip fairies.
  • Granny snuck off to the edge of the shrubbery and laid down for a nap under a nearby pearl bush, where she knew she would dream of the riches that gardening provides.
