What’s in the Garden:
Signs of spring are starting to appear and the Daffodils and Grape Hyacinths are flowering just in time for Easter. The Lenten Roses are in full bloom. The birds are returning to the area. The Forsythia are brightening up our landscape and pretty Pansy faces are reviving planters and pots as gardeners anticipate another season of color returning to their yard and gardens. Before you know it the flowering trees will start showing their majestic and long awaited blooms. Which is your favorite? Is it the Dogwood, the Kwanzan Cherry, the Eastern Redbud or the Flowering Crabapple? What shrub says Spring to you? Is it the Forsythia, Exbury Azalea, or the Flowering Quince?
Our Rohsler’s Grown™ Hydrangeas are simply stunning! Choose from purple, blue, pink or white just to name a few. You can use them to adorn your front porch on Easter morning and then give them as gifts at the end of your family gathering. Don’t forget to save one for your own garden. Our Hydrangeas are hardy so they can be planted outside once the danger of a hard frost has past in late April! Hydrangeas also make beautiful centerpieces for your holiday or kitchen table! Combining flowering Hydrangeas with some potted Forsythia in full bloom creates a stunning display. Bulb plants such as Daffodils, Tulips, Hyacinths and Easter Lilies are in their full glory for Palm Sunday and Easter.
A fun way to add curb appeal is to plant those playful faces of Pansies in pots flanking your front door. Add some colorful Easter grass, a couple of plastic eggs and some Violas for a cheerful display of color! After Easter, simply remove the plastic eggs and replace the colorful grass with Spanish moss and your planting will look great until the weather warms enough for summer annuals.
We would love to share some of your Easter decorations on Facebook. Please message us on Facebook.com/rohslersallendalenurseryandfloristor you can email them to us at [email protected].
The weather finally looks like it will be warming up and the ground will be starting to dry out which spells the perfect combination to get back in the garden. Cool season veggies and herbs can be planted right now including Lettuce, Spinach, Kale, Parsley, and Rosemary just to name a few. Hardy annuals such as Snapdragons, African Daisies, Sweet Alyssum, and Stocks can all be planted outside now. Now is also a perfect time to fertilize trees and shrubs as well as the lawn. Crabgrass Preventer should go down now if you want to avoid struggling with the onslaught of crabgrass this summer.
Our yard and greenhouses are filling up with a wide array of plants with the onset of Spring. We invite you to stop by and admire the beautiful colors, textures and foliage that our plant selection can add to your garden and landscape.
