So, you say….”what kind of gardening are you doing in the middle of winter?!” Well, you might be surprised. As professional gardeners, Judy and I are working with plants year ’round. Right now I have over 250 Poinsettias in the greenhouse that will be given to folks for Christmas. Some will end up in people’s homes, while the rest will decorate chapels.
Easter Season has also started for me. Easter Lillies need to be potted up soon or there will be no blooms for Easter this year. There is also St. Valentine’s Day to think about, not to mention shamrocks for St. Patrick’s Day. The orange trees will be ready to pick soon as well as the bananas.
I’m sure you have been thinking about spring too as the first of the gardening catalogs arrive.
You and I will have a lot of things to talk about in the upcoming days and weeks. Judy has plenty of topics as well. I’m looking forward to talking with you again and encourage you to participate often by posting comments and/or questions.
So, let’s jump right in to the deep end and get started!
