Get your Shopping on!

For some gardeners their spring ‘Hallelujah’ moment may come when the first crocus unfurls it’s petals, for others it’s hearing the peepers call, or perhaps smelling that gorgeous earthy aroma after a good spring rain. For me, it’s that first glorious step into a greenhouse or nursery yard packed with brand new plants, new pots and fun garden toys all wanting to hop onto my cart and come home with mama!

First up on my immediate shopping agenda: Violas, Seaweed/Fish emulsion, Plant & Holly-tone, 2 bales Pro-Mix, permanent garden markers that will actually work, burlap for wrapping the balls of all the deer-eaten shrubs I plan to dig up, and who knows what other irresistible treats. What’s on your early-spring must-have shopping list?

Here’s a brief rundown of some area nurseries who are open, opening this weekend and opening soon. This list is by no means complete. If your favorite nursery is missing, and you think every gardener should know about it, please add it to the comments section or send me an email and I’ll update the post. You can also download the Nursery List here. Enjoy!

It’s always a good idea to CALL BEFORE YOU GO to confirm hours, especially if traveling out of your way or making a special trip. Many nurseries adjust their schedules on a seasonal basis, and may change their hours of operation without notice.

    Love your Journal, Laura. Beautifully written, really a super resource. Makes me want to jump in the car and SHOP and I’m not too far afield from you. Are you sold in Pro-Mix? I find that it’s kind of a lean diet…

  2. Laura W says:

    Thanks Tovah! I use Pro-Mix as my base, mainly because it’s available in the huge bales. Then I add compost, sand, etc depending on what’s getting potted. I’m always looking to improve my methods or try something new, and would love to hear what you’re using at your potting bench. Please share!
