Three things to know in the garden in April


It snowed heavily in the morning, then rained in the afternoon and by the evening it was full bright sunshine. Ahhhhh the unpredicatability of early spring. Through this though, there are some simple things to know in the garden.

    Thank you for your videos, I watch them all! I would love to learn more about starting from seeds in a future video!

    What gray? What brown? We have green winters! Only brown I know is August when we stop getting rain! Admittedly some plants are dormant but other that this crazy year we usually get spring sooner. Snow in April! Great plants. I can always tell when the hyacinths are blooming because the yard is fragrant. Looking forward to Seeds101.

    Hi Janessa! You are correct, the heliotrope is really a wonderful annual. (Blooms until the first frost in the fall.) It is possible to bring it in before the first frost and bring it back out after the last frost. (A single frost will do it in.) They’re extremely easy to winter over. Garden On!

    Hi J-Dogg. My heliotropes did not survive winter. Sad face. Is this a plant that needs to be brought indoors over the winter?

    Hi Pulki!
    Changing over to our Earthpots has been a great decision for us. (I’m glad you agree!) For us here it’s a great first step. We’re always looking for ways to to help Mother Earth and if we all do our share we can make the difference. (Currently just our four inch but we are expanding.) Garden On! (Thanks for your comment!)

    Thanks for ditching the plastic pots and switching to the earth pots for annuals! Is this just for the 4" size or can it work for tray packs, too? Love your videos.

    Thank you for your videos! I would love to see you do one on starting seeds indoors. I have not been very successful and would appreciate some guidance.
