Spring Newsletter

Spring makes its own statement, so loud and clear that the gardener seems to be only one of the instruments, not the composer ~ Goffrey B. Charlesworth

Happy First Day of Spring!

Happy Spring from Heritage Lavender! We are busy in the greenhouse growing up little lavender babies for our plant sale in May. Watch our website and Facebook pages for dates and times.

We will enjoy the first day of spring by working outside cleaning up and prepping our flower beds so they will be ready for seeds in late April. We will patiently wait for higher soil temperatures and prime conditions for proper germination. I learned this the hard way one year as I watched the spring rains wash away my expensive organic seeds. That’ll make a gardener cry!

I enjoyed reading this informative article about Spring Equinox from Farmers Almanac , it includes a link to watch a live telescope show today at 4:30EDT. I’ll be watching spring unfold, will you?

February winds blew March in like a lamb with beautiful weather to wet a gardeners appetite. Will it leave like a lion?  This time of year we’re all excited  to get out and play in the dirt, be careful, don’t remove too much protective mulch. Colorado can bring us some heavy wet snow in April. Read more about early spring trickery here from Proven Winners. 

Outside the greenhouse in January ’twas cold & wintery, today it’s warm & sunny, March always brings suprises!
Inside the greenhouse ’tis warm and toasty with a few blooms beginning to appear. This tiny columbine bloom tells us spring is here.
