GARDENING CORNER

Gardening Team with Head Gardener, Teresa Sciglibaglio

With the evolution of our four seasons, Head Gardener, Teresa Sciglibaglio, showcases the ever-changing Gardens at Willows Lodge and shares her tips for the home gardener.

 

SPRING GARDENING TIPS

* Weed!  It's a constant task.  The more often you tackle this chore, the easier it will be.

* After all the weeds are gone, it's time to mulch, being careful not to cover up newly emerging plants and staying clear of the trunks of the trees.

* Deadhead faded blossoms of spring bulbs leaving the foliage to die back.  This will  produce sugars to feed the bulbs for new year's blooms.

* Start your summer seeds.  The Maritime NW Garden Guide, by the Seattle Tilth is a great resource for what to grow each month.

* Even if you have a small deck or patio, you can stil enjoy the beauty of gardening by creating a spring container.  Here are a few of my favorites for your new container:

Atilbe arendsii 'Bonn'
Hosta 'Guacamole'
Heuchera 'Peach Flambe'
Bergenia 'Winter Glow'
Dryopteris 'Brilliance'

Lastly, remember to take time to have a glass of wine and enjoy your garden.
