The month of May is one of the most uplifting times of the year for gardeners.  We see our gardens come to life again and treasure each new shoot as it emerges from the soil in our perennial gardens. The buds on trees swell and burst forth with the glory of green.  From the palest lime to bright forest green our world changes as leaves unfurl.  What miracles we have the privilege to enjoy!

Spring also brings some special chores.  Now is the time to begin the big clean-up.  Oak leaves and debris not cleaned up last fall should be removed.  Some perennials that were not cut back in the Fall should be trimmed back before new growth begins. “Mother Nature” has been good to us with moisture so far this Spring and that will help get all of our gardens off to a great start.

A visit to our greenhouse will tempt you to think about all of those wonderful annuals available to use.  Some plants, like pansies and violas, thrive in cool Spring temperatures.  They are actually fine down to about 26 degrees.  The bright colors of pansies will definitely be a cheerful welcome to all your guests this season.  The rest of your annual plants can be planted after the last danger of frost.  Our last average frost date is usually mid-May.  Always watch those weather forecasts and you can see when it will be likely to occur this year.

We begin to plant lovely custom containers for our customers in May at Pahl’s.  If you need a little help this year we will be glad to choose plants with you and if needed we can plant them up.  You can inquire about a custom planting at the service desk, or ask at our planting desk in the front of our first greenhouse. When you visit Pahl’s be sure to ask about some of the exciting new plants we are carrying this year.

Do you love your vegetable garden?  Fresh produce right out of your very own garden is the best.  We have wonderful vegetable plants that you can start with.  We feature tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, squash, pumpkins, cabbage, and beans to name a few.  Our staff can help you learn about growing vegetables and how you can enjoy healthy beautiful gardens at your home.  Along with fresh veggies you may want to check out all of those tasty herbs.  What could taste better than a scrumptious home grown tomato drizzled with olive oil, sprinkled with basil, and topped off with a slice of mozzarella.  Herb butters are also a favorite and many herbs work well for that.  Just soften the butter, snip some fresh herbs, blend and enjoy on crackers and toasts.

May begins our season of implementing all of those winter gardening dreams and wishes.  What a wonderful time to begin your gardening journey for 2013.  We are looking forward to helping you and will look forward to welcoming you back.
