Flower Planting Season
Hats off to the Horticulture team who received their first load of plant material late Tuesday afternoon and planted 1,898 plants in a day and a half! The gardens will be exploding with color in no time. Planting the flowers is definitely the most exciting time for the hort team but the work started much earlier for these girls. Preparing the beds for plants consists of removing excess debris, cutting back perennials and adding a nutrient rich garden mix. The garden mix is a combination of sand, peat moss and good old fashion cow manure. This acts as a slow release fertilizer as well as promoting good soil retention. One of many steps we take to ensure the success of our gardens throughout our season.
