If you haven’t already starting thinking about your garden, now’s the time! Eartheasy.com has some really great early Spring gardening tips! Whether you keep it simple with your front lawn & some flowers or you go all out with a vegetable garden & mega landscaping, we have some helpful hints in our Spring Gardening Guide.
Now’s the time to get your grass in tip-top shape! Rake up all that winter debris, and it’ll get some light and air flowing through your lawn. Spread grass seed over bare spots, and keep those areas watered.
Protect seedlings for those occasional hard frosts! We love that our days are warmer, but it is still pretty chilly overnight! Simply covering those tender sprouts with whatever you have on hand can save your future harvest! Even an upside down cardboard box with a rock on top will do!

Here are just some of your garden favorites that should be planted in April (it’s almost over) or early May:
Most berries, including- blueberries, blackberries, raspberries & strawberries
Greens, including- lettuce, spinach & kale
Your peas can go in too, but they’ll fare better if you wait a bit longer 😉
Planning on a pumpkin patch? Save those seeds until late June! That will ensure they don’t ripen too much before Halloween or Thanksgiving!
Don’t forget one of your best Spring planting resources: your local garden center!! Pittsford has some awesome locally-owned garden stores nearby! Check out Bristol’s Garden Center on Pittsford-Victor Road or Village Garden Store and Nursery in Mendon.
