  • Yes, June 1 is the cut off date that officially marks the difference between a spring bloomer and a summer bloomer. Does it matter that we know? Yes, if you want to prune properly.

    This spring was a great one for spring bloomers: lilacs, viburnums, azaleas and rhododendrons all were able to do their thing without a touch of frost or freeze.

    We deserve that from time to time, but in order to keep these shrubs in shape we need to prune them from time to time, as well.

  • I am particularly anxious to move some of my houseplants outdoors this spring. The gardenia that I have had for over 12 years looks terrible. It needs the restorative environment of the great outdoors:  more light, warmth, higher relative humidity and rain water.

    I am not sure whether the cold house during the January ice storm/no electricity episode has had an impact on it or if it was just coincidence that it began to die back shortly thereafter. In any case, it needs to be pruned up and sent outside to recover.
