Greetings from Plant Delights. February greeted us with more snow and ice, but it looks like the end of February has marked the end of the worst of the winter weather. Damage in the gardens was minimal and we are already seeing some pleasant surprises in plants that we didn’t expect to survive the winter. Everyone is in high gear from shipping to production as the spring onslaught has begun.
There is nothing like spring in a plant lovers garden. Our garden and research staff are trying to stay ahead of the awakening plants and are busy getting beds in good shape for spring. The construction of the Mt. Michelle waterfall continues with concrete pouring scheduled for March 10-12. If you haven’t been to the gardens and nursery in a while, you’ve got to come check out the completed project for spring open house April 30 – May 2 and May 7-9.
We’re writing descriptions and preparing to add more plants to the website, so expect to see some more additions in the next few weeks. Some will be limited edition new offerings and some will be returning old favorites. Stay tuned and watch for an email notice when the plants are added.
We hope you are enjoying spring as much as we are at PDN!
