Garden Calendar

This winter has been exceptionally wet. Early spring has been dry so far. Many temperate plants that do not normally thrive in subtropical gardens have done exceptionally well in recent months. Some tropical plants have not enjoyed the cool wet winter conditions and there are reports of plants rotting and dying from these conditions. Often tender tropical plants can survive through winter but then shoot into growth in the warmer weather and then suddenly die.
