Spring is right around the corner, and it’s time to freshen up your flower beds. The warm days and cool nights of spring are perfect for planting many stunning selections of annuals and perennials for both sun and shade.
Spade or till your beds at least a few weeks before planting, and work several inches of organic matter, like peat moss or composted cow manure, into the soil.
For beds and borders, mass plantings of one or two flower varieties provide the best show.
In your local garden center, be sure to select only the heathiest and plants. Choose beautiful wax begonias, angelonias, zinnias, and periwinkle that will make your spring garden the talk of the town!
