Garden centers are open!

Hurray, the garden centers in Ottawa are open for business, a sure sign of spring!  One of my favourite signs of spring actually. These pictures were taken two weeks ago now when I spotted my first open garden center and could not resist stopping in…


Perennials can be planted any time now, as soon as the ground is thawed.  Annuals should wait until after the last frost date for your time zone.  Here in Ottawa, that is usually around the long weekend in May. If you plant your annuals earlier than that, cover them when frost is forecast or bring containers in overnight.

Contact me at GARDENS4U with any questions or if I can help you plan your garden.

Happy gardening!
