It's time to dig in
We’re nearing the end of those topsy turvy early spring temperatures that make survival outdoors difficult for the more delicate plants. The first new moon of May, this year May 18, will serve as your green light to plant all flower and vegetable plants. In the meantime, use the nice days to clear out your gardens and landscape of debris and turn the soil in your vegetable patches to have a fresh start for planting.
Now is also a good time to stock up on the items you’d like to have on hand for planting—just keep the more delicate plants protected until May 18. Hardier perennials such as pansies and snapdragons can go out immediately. We have a full stock of flowering plants, vegetable plants, herbs and all the gardening supplies you need. While you're at the farm, sign up for Barbara's classes. There are two scheduled for May but class size is limited and registration is required.
Another big May event is Mother’s Day which falls on May 10 this year. If Mom loves gardening, this is the place to pick up the perfect gift. We have hanging baskets, ready-made containers, or you could personalize things by bringing your own special container and picking the plants--we’ll fill it for you! The gift shop is another great resource for a little something special for Mom. Or let her decide and give her a Frerichs Farm gift card.
When you’re ready to dig in and enjoy the spring, we’re here to help!?
