The Lawn and Garden Journal Returns February 9th!

February... with chilly temperatures, and heavy layers of snow blanketing the ground, we begin to shift our thoughts to balmy warm days and sunnier skies. February inspires us to remember the last…

Gardening Season Doesn't Have To End!

Snow has fallen a few times this month, and a crispness to the air seems to be staying. Gardening outdoors has now come to an end. Perennials, trees and shrubs are nestled in, and are adjusting to…

Fall is Garden Time

The next gardening season begins! Just as plants are being tidied, removed, divided and replanted, we are preparing spots for new plantings of bulbs for next year’s bloom. Tulips, daffodil, allium,…

The Changing of the Seasons Begins

Ahhhh, can you feel it? We still get the heat of the day, but we are also cooling down. The breeze has a coolness to it, and night time sleeping with the window open is refreshing. Our plants too…

In the Middle of Summer...

In the middle of our summer we witness the beauty of nature with the display of colour from all the flowers among us. The show of color is revealed in multiple shapes of blooms; from the tiniest…

Shrubs and Trees Need A Good, Long Drink

Warm spring winds begin to wake trees, shrubs and perennials up in the garden. Already last year’s set of leaf buds are showing signs of developing. We know the energy stored in the trees send energy…

Welcome The Heat, Everyone!

Preparation and Anticipation...

Will spring ever come? We persevere as we experience the tease of sunny days, and the dips of cold that wants to not give up. Stay the path, and prepare your plans for gardening. Tend to your…

Time to Plan for Spring Planting

It is here! It is officially the beginning of spring, and even with snow still on the ground our minds shift to everything green. In just over eight weeks, we anticipate being in our gardens. As your…
