Spring is Coming!

It always feels like a slow crawl, but spring is coming at the greenhouse!  Cleaning, painting and maintenance are now daily activities up on the hill.  We are also busy planting containers, hanging baskets and vegetables plants.  The feel of the holidays comes back when we unpack and price our fun new garden accessories, gifts and other garden helps in preparation for our opening the end of April.

It won’t be along until the crocus, snow drops and daffodils make their early spring visit and cheer us up with their arrival.  Now is the time to start thinking about planting seeds such as peppers and tomatoes in SW Wisconsin.

Please keep visiting out website for upcoming information on early season classes and our opening dates and greenhouse hours!

Fall Garden Cleanup & Spring Bulb Planting

 

 

Fall arrived this week in the Madison area.  Jada’s Garden crew is at the peak of fall garden cleanup and preparing flower beds for the winter months.  In a typical Wisconsin garden we remove all annuals and cut back most perennials.  Removing perennial plant debris is important to prevent diseases in the coming years.  Most grasses can be left uncut and removed in the spring.  Often times we lightly rake leaves, but leave some until the spring.  Most shrub pruning has already been completed in the summer months.  I like to leave rose bushes unpruned until the spring flush of growth appears and treat hydrangea and clematis the same way.

Now is the time to get your spring bulbs in before the ground freezes.  This will give the bulbs the critical chilling period they need to stimulate proper growth and development.
