Early Spring 2013
The weather outside in January and February can be daunting for East Tennessee gardeners, however, now is the time to plan for Spring planting. Garnering new ideas from the numerous seed catalogs, gardening magazines, and email publications can bring bright sunny thoughts for the coming Spring.
At Stanley’s we are real excited about Spring 2013. New varieties of trees, shrubs, herbs, veggies, annuals, and perennials are in the pipeline. Again, this year we are collaborating with ‘Proven Winners’ and HGTV to offer their latest plant selections as well. The garden choices are endless.
Gardening is one of the most healthy lifestyle choices. Over 40% of Americans garden. From expensive estate landscapes to an urban balcony container garden, it is a healthy hobby for anyone anywhere. While improving the beauty of your neighborhood, you also are getting physical activity, fresh air, and reconnecting with the earth creating a great spiritual exercise.
Gardening for wildlife is gaining momentum. Thankfully, many feel the need to encourage and sustain wildlife populations. Two local neighborhoods here in Knoxville are engaging in wildlife restoration projects. South Woodlawn Neighborhood Organization, whose goal is to be a ‘Certified Wildlife Habitat’ neighborhood and the Old Sevier Neighborhood, whose goal is to be a ‘Certified Monarch Waystation’ are among two projects taking root.
Gardening is rewarding in so many ways. Make plans now. Spring is just around the corner!
