Last year we moved into a new house with an existing garden. It was a year of discovery! What had the previous gardeners planted? Where should I put my own plants? I had no idea! As this location was the previous site of Bee Well Garden's, I figured there would be a lot of good bee plants, and whaddayaknow! Lovely Cosmos everywhere!
The garden in the picture couldn't possibly include every plant that grew in this 40'X45' garden space. I left out most of the verbena, passionflower, runner beans, gladiolas, daffodils, lilies, deer forage, bug yummies, groundhog fodder, and weeds.
Now is when I make plans to bend this space to my will in the coming season. I look forward to nature putting me in my place yet again!

Master Gardener volunteer and NH Outside guest writer Becky Stoughton on how to "Force Spring". Step 1: Prune your spring-blooming ornamental trees and shrubs.
Step 2: Prepare your branches (read the article for specifics) and place them in water.
Soon enough, those branches will start to bloom, brightening up your home or office while you patiently wait for spring to come outside. Thank you for the great idea, Becky!
Link for the article is in our bio. Enjoy!
Guest writer and Master Gardener volunteer Pauline "Peeps" Pinard Bogaert visited @towerhillbg and @FullerGardens to find out which "Early Risers" they're most looking forward to seeing in early spring. This article, first featured in the NH Outside newsletter, is a great reminder that the well planned garden can have flowers blooming almost year round - even in New Hampshire!

It's challenging to transition from winter to spring in this roller coaster weather, but here's some inspiration for you. This lovely photo is a sneak peak of "Hidden Paradise", one of the five private home gardens on this year's Denton County Master Gardener Association Spring Garden Tour. Save the date: Saturday, May 12th from 9 am to 4 pm. More information will be coming soon; stay tuned!
Dear Instagram Friends, this is a shout-out to all #mastergardeners , those with a #greenthumb , and anyone else who has more gardening experience than me: HELP!!!! One of my students gave me a hyacinth bulb as as a Christmas gift. I followed the directions on the box to the letter, hoping to 'force' its growth for an early mini spring. It molded. TWICE. 😣. (Second photo is the remains of a moldy patch after I rinsed it with water this A.M.). The tiny green spike suggests that all is not lost . . . could someone please help me figure out what I did wrong and how to foster this 'dorable baby green into a pretty flower? #hyacinth#bulbforcing#indoorgardening#flowers#needingspring

And when you're done learning grasses, the back half of the book is SUCCULENTS for days.
