Dis-Cussin' The Weather

Expansive everything is here now!


The weather people have got it tough.  The weather seems to be able to change faster than our computer models can adjust, or accurately project.  A 10-day forecast is essentially a three-day forecast, which is pretty accurate, with an extra week of statistical weather data added on.  I would be better off to never look at a 10-day forecast. I do look at multiple forecasts, multiple times a day, this time of year.  I must be a bit daft.


As gardeners, we are a determined lot.  Spring is here…officially.  The only problem is that apparently someone forgot to tell mom; you may know her as Mother Nature.  She has been decidedly difficult to deal with of late.  When it hasn’t been raining and wet, it has been windy.  It’s enough to make a nursery owner cuss, but I will admit, it really doesn’t take much to make that happen.  You better cover the children’s ears, ‘cause here it comes! If we can ever get those gosh-darned, shovel-ducking comb-suckers to give us a forecast like it is supposed to be, we’d all be a bit happier, and cuss less.  Pardon my language.


I’m glad we don’t have to forecast the weather; we are just forced to deal with whatever it does.  I don’t know about you, but in my line of work, it is an every day thing.  We avoid, at all costs,allowing fear and common sense to dictate our actions. So…


Remember this: Take photos of your area(s).  Count the number of plants in each area.  Decide if you want to replant with, more or less, the same thing as before, or if you’d like to try a different look.  We have a selection second to none.  We have the expertise to help advise you in your gardening process!


We have extensive everything!  Annuals, perennials, fruiting trees and shrubs, tropicals/houseplants, conifers, broadleaf evergreens, Japanese maples, and more!


You have gardening questions; submit them here.  We answer those questions, Saturday mornings on, “The At Home Show”. We keep you growing!
