The unseasonably warm weather presents a trial for gardeners:  we want to get out and plant things but we know we’re likely to receive more snow.  While you wait for May, enjoy planning your garden.  The city’s annual garden-in-a-box program is going, so you can visit the online plant store and order a yard full of ornamental and edible plants. Each xeric garden comes with lots of healthy plants and a planting guide.

In addition to the low-moisture plants and water-conserving irrigation systems, they’ve added something new this year:  planting structures constructed of beetle-killed pine.

Finally, here’s a gardening event you can put on your calendar:  Creating a Lush Xeriscape – 4 Seasons of Beauty.  This free seminar will be held on Wednesday, April 11th, at the Golden Community Center.
