It’s gardening season again. Some of you are going Woo Hoo! Others are wishing I’d go back to talking about food. However, Mother’s Day was the opening of gardening season in the Pacific Northwest. As a nursery worker we dread Mother’s Day weekend. It’s like a florist on Valentine’s Day. Biggest holiday of the year. By the end if you hear, “Do you have any Pink Dogwoods?” again you may go out back and shoot yourself because you sold out 3 weeks ago. That kind of busy.
Last year we had the great petunia experiment. Only I fell down on the job and didn’t help you along nor did I check back in. If you would like to repeat the petunia experiment read the linked post and have at it. This year I won’t be so bold as to make you go out and plant a petunia. We’ll start smaller this year. A tour of my garden. You got a tour of my house, why not my garden too. (please note that the trusty husband edited this video down from 12 minutes to 6 minutes. It also does not include my back yard)
(This video was taped the week before last)
To follow, a week full of gardening help. On Friday I will answer your gardening questions. So if you have a question post it in the comments or email me at elle @ lifeofelle . com. (for the new readers… why am I so big on gardening? My degree is in horticulture and I am a former landscape designer and greenhouse manager)
