Horticultural Happenings Checking Out the New Seed Catalogs

Our seed catalogs have started appearing! We can now start to think about gardening outdoors in the nice warm spring weather. Anything that helps us look toward warmer weather and away from below freezing temperatures and all the snow and ice that comes with winter, is a welcomed experience. It is at this time of year that we can begin to prepare for a summer full of beautiful blooms and delicious gardens. It is a good time to plan for spring because it will help us realize that spring will be here before we know it, with all its warmth and beauty.
