Make your garden plans early
As each day gets a little longer this month, we become eager to return outside to the joy and beauty of our gardens. If you prefer to start your plants from seed, we advise ordering them early for the most options and to be ready when the perfect planting time rolls around. To get a jump on the growing season, consider starting them indoors according to their specific needs and transplant them into your garden when the threat of frost has passed. At Gerbert & Sons, our horticultural experts can recommend the best vegetable and flower species for your property and our climate, including pest-resistant varieties. We will also suggest the most optimum location and method of planting for both your flowers and vegetables, from creating traditional in-ground plots to custom raised planting beds, and versatile container gardens, completing the perfect landscape design for your property.
Adding the beauty of blue
Said to be taken from the color of the sky at dusk, “Classic Blue” was chosen as the Pantone color for this year, and we at Gerbert & Sons offer a wide variety of ways to incorporate the tranquil and soothing effects of this color from nature into your property’s landscape. Consider adding the natural indigo pigment of flowers such as hydrangeas, delphinium, grape hyacinth, salvia, blue phlox, forget-me-nots, among others to your garden plans this spring. Perhaps a beautiful blue container garden filled with complementary flower varieties would add a welcome touch of this calming color to a special spot. Have our experts design and install a custom water feature as another way to introduce the special feelings associated with blue to your property, in combination with the known relaxing benefits of the water itself.
