Dividing Perennials This Spring

If you didn’t divide your spreading perennials last fall, you might want to make that an early task this spring. Just letting them go may result in their squeezing out other plants that share the same bed. If your spreading perennials are near a sidewalk, they may impede you or guests using the walk. If […]

Arbor Day This Friday

This Friday, April 27, we observe a holiday that could be considered “Gift of Life” day. It’s Arbor Day.
