It has been a strange weather pattern for the last month. We have very warm days, we have very cold days, we have had heavy amounts of rain and we have had moderate amounts of snow and most of that snow disappeared.
It always seems that the last week of December is really cold. This year is not going to be the exception to the rule.

At about this time every year, we have people who come into the garden center, looking for inspiration. They usually have someone on their gift list that happens to be a gardener.
The roughly 6 inches of snow came as somewhat of a surprise. On the other hand, it is December and December usually means snow at some point in the month. Raise your hand if you didn’t get all the leaves raked up before the snow. My hand is in the air.
Last week, I was telling you about growing Paperwhite bulbs and Amaryllis bulbs. I told you that this week, I would be giving you a few hints on how to better grow these bulbs.

Thanksgiving is a time of family get-togethers with a giant meal. As we all know, the following Friday is Black Friday; the official start of the holiday shopping spree.

Well, that was quite the spell of cold weather. I don’t know about you but for me, that first wave of really cold weather each year really takes some getting used to.
