Chin up people, winter days are dwindling and the bright sunny days of Spring & Summer are ahead! So, how will your garden grow this year? If you take steps now, you will be guaranteed a gorgeous garden come Spring.

1) How is your bird bath or outdoor statue looking? If you procrastinated and neglected to clean it this past fall, now is the time to get going. Our Bird Bath Protector works great for that.

2) Sharpen your garden tools. It can be minus 10 degrees outside, but this is a job that can be done indoors.

3) Annuals can be started inside. You’ll save money and it can be fun besides. You will need a peat pot, potting mix and seeds to get started. For further details, here’s a good guide:


4) Design your garden’s layout. Grab a pen and paper and go to town. Group by color, mix it up – let your imagination go wild.

5) Get your supplies now so you will have them when the time is right. Our Garden Gel Kneeler was a lifesaver for me last planting season. The sidewalk by my flower bed can be unforgiving. This mat made a huge difference in my comfort level!

6) Think early. There are plants that do well even before Memorial Day. These include: onions, radishes, beets and lettuce, to name but a few.
– Until next time… Ann 🙂
