Happy May! Flowers are blooming, bees are flying in abundance, and the birds love flying through my school hallways. (Don’t worry, I have a pod based school with outside hallways.) I have many buds in my garden just waiting to pop open within the next few days. There isn’t much else to look forward to, but I can’t wait to see the beauty of my summer garden.
During this time of year, I most look forward to the Fred Meyer fuchsia sale and the deals you can get afterward. What do you look forward to? Is there a particular plant or flower that you really enjoy, other than roses of course? Since we don’t have a Rose Show to prepare for, perhaps you can do a plant exchange with a neighbor or a mini show on your front walk. Maybe you could wrangle a nearby child and teach them about gardening. At our last meeting, we learned some different options to keep color in your garden all year round. Come join us this month to learn something fun.
If you’re looking for fertilizer, come check out the Poo Crew at Oaks Park May 17th from 5:30-8:00 pm. Or you can give our lovely Chatter editors a call to arrange a physically distanced fertilizer pick up for our same great price. If you can’t get to their home in SW Portland, know that Portland Nursery (Stark & Division), Dennis' 7 Dee's (Lake Oswego & Cedars Hills), Garden Frog Nursery, Gardener's Choice, Concentrates, Inc, Naomi's Farm and Garden Supply, Garland Nursery (Corvallis), Coastal Ranch and Farm Supply, and Tony's Garden Center all carry our PRS fertilizer at a retail price. If you can’t support us directly, you can support a local nursery to get our product.
Fröhlichen Frühling ~ Emily
