The Garden In February
Still a while to wait for real gardening weather, but the first signs are here. Hellebore are showing buds, and spring bulb foliage is poking through the cold soil. Time to get serious about planning any projects for the coming season. Order seeds to get a head start on the vegetable garden. Seed-starting kits are available at modest cost, and can save money in the long term by providing so much produce over the course of a growing season. Ornamental annuals can also be started from seed, with many more flower varieties available than can be found at nurseries. Small investment in time and money now=big payoff all summer.
