Sheet Blowing in Wind  The satiny gray sheet of Winter, once unfurled and perfectly draped, has begun to wrinkle and bunch as Spring tugs at its corners, releasing its drab cover.  Soon it will be folded and shelved until next year.  Spring is most definitely in the air.

Winter is nearing its end, and the blossoms of spring are coming soon.  It’s time to start thinking of what you will plant in your garden. There are many factors to consider: including sunlight, when and where they grow best, and even the type of soil required. That’s why we are sharing this handy guide made by ProFlowers that includes all of the needed information, including some special features like which blooms are best for cut flowers, which are deer resistant, etc. Scroll through to find your perfect bloom!

Chives  As always if you have any questions, or are interested in any of the flowers mentioned in the guide, reach out to Sweeney’s!  Together we can create the garden you’ve always dreamed of, one flower at a time.
