Why it’s good February is a short month…
Because gardening season is that much closer!  While it isn’t quite time to start sowing your seeds indoors (but it is coming real soon!), don’t wait too long to pick up the seeds you want.  As the old saying goes, “The early bird gets the worm”.  Do you have a plan yet?  Has what you’ve done before worked well for you?  If so, then now is the time to stop in and choose your seed varieties!  If you’d like to make changes in your garden, we  suggest now is the time to evaluate what has worked for you in the past versus what hasn’t.  Determining your yearly garden plan is a key to success.  A garden plan can be as in depth or loose as you’d like it to be, don’t stress over it!  Maybe you know that you have 6 patio pots and 4 require full sun while 2 are mostly shade – that can be your plan.  Maybe you know that you want to focus more on vegetable planting, or a cut flower garden, or developing your perennial area – that can be your plan.  It’s possible that gardening is your meditation or you’ve been doing it for years and you know exactly what you want, exactly where you want it, and exactly what you need to achieve it – you have a plan.  Maybe you don’t have the first clue and you’re a beginner but you know that this is the year you want to dig (see what I did there?!) in.  Bauer’s is here to help you succeed!  Let us know what you’re looking for and what your goals are and we can help.
