The flowers have arrived! The horticulture crew will be out today beginning their annual planting. A sure sign that summer is on its way. Although temperatures have been favorable lately we start with cold and hardy plants over the next 10 days. These plants include Snapdragons, Rudbeckia, Salvia, some varieties of Petunias, Lobelia, Verbena and of course, Pansies. We will be spreading compost simultaneously. The incorporation of compost to our beds is essential. The compost provides long term nutrients to the plants, helps regulate the moisture level, and acts as a blanket to choke out those nasty weeds early in the season.
