Planning for the Spring

Posted by & filed under Don Buma Blog, Horticulture News.

Despite ice on the bird bath and the ongoing cold temperatures, spring is on the way.  You should be receiving the spring catalogues in your mailbox soon, if you have not already, and dreams of the “perfect” garden may already have you completely forgetting about any less than bumper crops and fully floriferous flower gardens last year.  As you plan your garden, be sure to consider the All-America Selections.  They are great plants and have proven themselves very adaptable throughout the country. Pictures of two of this year’s winners and a web site for additional information are below.
