Things to begin thinking about…
It’s the time of year when we begin to get motivated about the upcoming spring season. Doing a few early preparations will bring great benefits all year long. So while we wait for mother nature to give us the go ahead, there are a few things that we can be thinking about. One small secret to executing our spring garden is by starting off with a plan. Maybe you would like to plant a vegetable garden this year, maybe a raised bed? Think about trouble spots from last year and how you can rectify them early this year to make your yard a welcoming environment and a place that you will really enjoy coming home to after a long days work. If container gardening on your deck is a better prospect for you, think about investing in a couple of decorative pots that really make a statement. In container gardens, plants are easily transitioned from season to season.
Now is the perfect time to get your lawn mower in for service, this way you are ready when the time comes and you will also beat the eager gardening crowd. Turn on your outdoor spigots and attach hoses.
Over the winter leaves and debris gather and live in drainage areas. Keep in mind that a great place to discard your cleared material would be in the compost. Rake out any existing leaves and debris, pick up small branches and add them in the compost pile as well.
When planning your garden this spring don’t forget to visit our garden center at Cedar Grove Gardens for great ideas and inspiration. As well as the best variety of plants in town!
A new year, a new you and more importantly…new flowers… every month for a year! It has been said that flowers bring joy and happiness to both the person giving as well as the person receiving them.
Do you know someone who is going through a rough time? Maybe you are newly married, newly engaged or maybe you are just head over heels in love! Just as the ever popular slogan says “Flowers say it best” they really do. Sending beautiful fresh flowers on a consecutive basis is a gift that most will undoubtedly enjoy. “Additionally, scientific research shows that flowers and plants have a beneficial impact on state of mind and emotions. Rutgers University behavioral studies have proven that flowers provide a simple way to improve emotional health-that the presence of flowers triggers happy emotions, heightens feelings of life satisfaction and affects social behavior in a positive manner far beyond what is normally believed.
