It happens every year. The sun comes out, and gardeners all over the country start calling. "Where's my order? I'm ready to plant!" We patiently explain that we really WILL send it at that magical time: "the correct planting time for your area." Tender bulbs, certain wildflower seeds and lots of our perennials will really suffer if planted too soon. So even if you're convinced about Global Warming, you may be planting a day or two early, but not weeks earlier than ever before. Hold on. Spring will arrive, and so will your order.
