Have you ever stood out on a beach during a big storm and watched the waves crash ashore? It’s fun to watch the swells start to build out as far as the eye can see–and more fun still to try to predict which one will be “the big one” that makes you run for high ground!

But I’m not here to talk about big waves coming ashore…although it’s starting to feel like it. Even though we’re only halfway through winter, spring will be here before we know it, and we can start to see the waves building on their approach to the nursery, so to speak. We’ve gotten final notice of the first of our plant orders–some of our perennial starts have already arrived–we’re starting to get plant tags in the mail (meaning an order of plants is soon to follow) and our back room is presently full of fertilizers, squirrel-proof bird feeders, and a great assortment of new products soon to be unpacked and proudly displayed. Before we know it, we’ll be up to our eyeballs in plants and gardening products once again!

Like I said, it feels like the waves are starting to build, but in the world of gardening, that’s great news–spring will soon be here! Enjoy the last weeks of winter, and stay tuned…we’ve got great things in store for the year ahead!
