Spring is in Sight
The first day of spring has come and gone, and soon we will begin to see the weather warm up. Here at Nunan’s, we’re excited to be able to put out pansies and cold-tolerant perennials. Even just a little bit of color is an amazing sight to see in place of the dreary grey dregs of winter. Beautiful pansies and early spring perennials are grown here so they are ready to deal up the ups and downs of early spring. Nothing says spring quite like the smiley face of a pansy. In the meantime, there are plenty of things you can do to begin the growing season.
- It’s a great time to get a head start on your landscaping. Make an appointment for us to come to your house, give you some ideas, or at a reasonable cost, give you a full scale landscape design to fit any budget. From large to small, we do it all.
- If the ground has started to thaw out, now is a good time to take soil samples and test them for pH, nitrogen, phosphorous, and potash levels.
- Once you work the ground, it would be a good time to transplant and divide your existing perennials.
- Begin raking lawns as soon as it’s dry enough to lift snow mold and any leaves left from fall. As soon as the snow leaves the lawn and raking is complete,
treat the area with Scotts Step 1 or another type of pre-emergent crabgrass control.
- Even if we do get snow, it is called “poor man’s fertilizer” and will help build the water table.
