We have Pansies! And no, it's not too early to plant!

Yes, we have pansies in stock. Violas too. No, it's not too early to plant! Everyone has been walking through the nursery and saying to Victoria, "Oh, beautiful perennials, but it's too early to plant right?"

No! It is perfectly safe to plant trees, shrubs, perennials and yes, pansies! (It's still too early for annuals and warm weather veggies like tomatoes, basil, and peppers.) But now is a great time to put cold-hardy plants in the ground. Especially a rainy weekend like we're about to have. Experienced gardeners know how to let mother nature do their work for them. Moist soil is easier to dig in than very dry soil, and you don't have to drag the hose over if rain showers are on the way.

Happy planting.
