To whom it may concern,
I am so confused… I want to plant annuals, but some say now is the time, others say wait. Being that you are in the gardening business, what do you do?
Oh, the “hurry up and get into the garden” syndrome has affected you and the only cure is dirt under the finger nails. Because of global warming the weather patterns are out of sorts and everyone is all excited about plants in bloom, birds singing and buzzards flying around, and we are also. But as a certified and trained Master Gardener, having a green thumb to boot, and being raised as a gardener, I can tell you it’s way too early for annuals and I doubt if we have had our last frost. But that could also not be the norm anymore. I am waiting to plant annuals, but we are putting in perennials, as they are much more hardier and will take a few days of cold. So, my dear, wait until Mother Nature tells you she is ready then plant and enjoy the bounty of a wonderful blooming season.
