Spring Fever

OKAY, so it’s finally starting to warm up and everyone has spring fever….  So what does that mean???  It’s time to start getting your flower beds ready for planting.  By adding in new top soil as well as mushroom compost,  you will  help generate new healthy growth.  Till up the soil first and then add new soil.  After you plant and mulch, don’t forget to apply some “Preem” as a final step to help prevent any summer weeds from growing in the bed.  Here are a couple of names of some nice spring flowers to plant now.  Diascia, Nemesia, Sweet Alyssum, Petunias, Bacopa, Dianthus, Euphorbia, Lotus vine, Blue Daze, and Foxglove.  Have fun in the garden!!!
