Flower power

The blunt shock of cold morning air and the icy travels down the driveway have come to an end as winter has given way to spring. The ground has thawed, and for many the mud season passed in the blink of an eye. With the sun rising higher in the sky each day and the evenings lasting longer after the work day, local gardening aficionados begin to prepare their
soil and gather tools for the upcoming season. Providing a wealth of growing information and a multitude of plants, seeds and tools, local nurseries will help guide both the novice and the veteran green thumb through the growing season.
