Merry Christmas!

If you’re like any other proud gardener, then you have included sprucing up your planting beds for the holidays. Flowers have been added to welcome those holiday guests as they arrive, fresh mulch has been laid and there isn’t a weed to be found!

Now it’s time to sit back and relax. Enjoy the holiday festivities and glow in the praises of your hard work. Don’t hesitate to point out a creative design in you containers, or an unusual plant you found hidden away in the garden center. Go ahead and show off your hard work. Bring your holiday parties outside, gather around the pool or fire pit and toast in the New Year.

This is a time to be with family and friends, and chances are they also harbor a love of plants. Let the conversation wind around the newest tool, plant or gardening method you’ve discovered. Compare notes on who has the best gardens, and make plans to visit in the new year.

But don’t get too comfortable. This is the south, and nothing goes dormant for long down here. Soon you’ll be out there dead heading flowers, mowing the grass and plucking the weeds.

From our Garden to yours…

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
