Early spring flowers are a sure sign warmer weather is on the way. Spring weather may be unpredictable, yet many spring flowers are hardy enough to handle it. Your garden can be brimming with color almost as soon as the ground thaws. Many early-spring bloomers can be planted outdoors even before the threat of frost has past. Others may need a bit of coddling to begin with, but cool spring weather is when they shine, so do not miss out by waiting too long to plant them. Some early bloomers can tolerate temperatures as low as 20 degrees. Don’t hesitate to plant flowers in containers that give you the option of bringing them in the garage or house if the temps dip too low.
Some great choices for beautiful cool weather annuals and perennials at Colonial Garden Center would be Pansies, Coral Bells, Hellebores, Grape Hyacinth, Crocus, Daffodil, and Tulips...just to name a few. Come see our experts 7 days a week for guidance on your spring garden choices.
