While our weather has been so unpredictable and disappointing, you can do more than think about all the fabulous things you want blooming in your yard. Start planting now. What are some of the standards I suggest? Tough-as-nails geraniums, dahlias, petunias, cone flowers and, of course, one of my absolute favorites, peonies.
While you’re at it, prep your planters. Add some soilless mix and make sure your pots have proper drainage.
