First day of gardening in 2010
It's a nice day here today. I spent a couple of hours out in the garden today. This is an excellent time to clean out the flower beds. The perennials are mostly underground or easily seen. No annuals to work around. Any weeds are easily spotted and removed. A light raking to remove winter debris. It's easy to see the structure of woody plants too, so a great time to prune out broken or unwanted branches. Who said you can't garden in New England in January?
One note: my Gardenia "Frostproof" that I planted last spring looks perfectly fine!
