Cool spring…big hostas

With all the rain we have had, plus the cooler weather, the hostas are extremely happy!  I am too, as I just purchased the ‘Empress Wu’ hosta.  It has a reputation for being one of the largest, with plain green leaves.  Not fancy color, but sheer size, will make it stunning.  I hope!                 

Now is a good time to get that mulch ordered.  By bag or by cubic yard, the sooner you get the mulch down the better.  The perennials are still relatively small, the weeds are easy to pull, and the moisture will retained longer.

The cooler weather kept a number of us away from the garden centers.  Well get going and pick up your vegetable plants and start looking at the perennials.  June is the perennial month.  As the nurseries load up, many will begin having moderate sales.
