Planting Season Is Around the Corner
With a new season around the corner comes a new lease on plant life. The frosty winter months are coming to an end, and we are all ready to incorporate that fresh spring feeling into our homes and gardens. The best way to do that would be to invest in some quality plants that brighten up your home and blossom during spring.
The Best Plants for Spring
Nothing says we’re heading into the warmer seasons like colour and more colour. Most people associate blossoming flowers with spring and new beginnings. So, why not start planting a few new colourful blossoms around your garden? Remember that spring is the season of rebirth and renewal. So, don’t be afraid to get creative and plant some new life in your garden.
Here at Windy Willows, we have a vast array of beautiful plants and flowers to choose from. Don’t know if we have what you’re looking for? No problem! All you need to do is type the name of the plant or flower you want into our Plant Selector and we’ll let you know if that specific plant is available or in stock. We also provide you with handy information about each plant that we stock. Keep in mind which plants or flowers bloom in the springtime (like pansies and petunias) or choose some perennials or bulbs that aren’t as picky when it comes to seasonal changes.
Chase Away Those Pests
Unfortunately, spring also signals the return of the gardener’s worst enemy: bugs! The warm weather isn’t always as beneficial as one may assume. Yes, some bugs are helpful to your greenery, like hard-working bees and graceful butterflies (who are quite nice to look at too). However, there are a few little critters that cause way more harm than good. Who of us hasn’t cursed upon seeing bean flies and leaf beetles on our painstakingly nourished plants?
The good news is that many plants help to keep these pesky pests away, so you won’t even need to sacrifice your lovely aesthetic with potentially harmful pesticides. Lavender will give your garden a calming aroma while driving away most insects, or, if you prefer tending a herb garden, you can try out rosemary and basil and get the added bonus of having some new ingredients to cook with (not to mention the bragging rights that come with growing your own ingredients!).
