Garden to open for the season

We are all busy these days cleaning up from winter and preparing horticultural delights in our greenhouses for the summer ahead. The Public Garden will formally open for the season on April 15. But for now you can visit from 8 to 2 Monday to Friday. Come in and watch your garden awake.

Most of the year goes fast but March is a drag

Winter in Halifax can be very sunny. We have the more sunny days in winter than most Canadian cities. But on a day like today with high winds, rain and I’ve you remember the purpose of insulated rubber boots.

Now is a good time to check any tubers, bulbs, and tender perennials that you have tucked away for the winter. These are our Dahlia tubers. They have come through the winter well so far but I must continue to check them as they may become dehydrated in our frost free refrigerator.
I have also got miniature roses, Gloriosa rothchildiana, geraniums, fuchsia, and potted bulbs to check on and prepare for spring.

What have you got? Do you have any questions?
