I don’t know about you, but I have spring fever! On January 11th, when it was 71 degrees outside, I went out to the yard, raked some leaves that blew in from the neighbor’s, pulled some weeds and watered (yes, I watered even with all of the rain we have been getting) some of the dry spots in my perennial garden. I ignored my best advice (never plant under the overhang of your house) and planted under a large overhang. The weather does not hit that side of the house so I have to manually water it often, even in winter.
My cure for cabin fever:
February is a great time to start pouring over the garden magazines and seed catalogs to begin planning for spring. On nice days, get outside and look for bare spots that need filling, paying attention to how much sun it gets in that area and make notes. Here at Country Farms, we are preparing for spring by replenishing all our garden center supplies and placing orders for our annuals, tropicals, perennials, shrubs, and trees. We have some new suppliers this spring with amazing quality!
I am looking forward to my first full year at Country Farms! My staff and I are excited to help you with all of your gardening and landscaping needs. Feel free to give us a call early, to help you plan. See you soon!
