What to plant in your garden right now

GTU Sponsor

It’s officially spring! Spring time gardening is now on the run! Who better to help you get your garden ready, than LaRene Bautner from Millcreek Gardens. 

According to LaRene, the fruit trees are just about ready to bloom! In order to protect them, she suggests spraying them with dormant oil. 

“There’s a very short window of opportunity,” says LaRene. “It coats the overwintering insects and you’ll prevent about 90% of bug challenges in your fruit.” 

Be sure to do it before the bud breaks on your fruit tree so get it done now!

If you just can’t wait for your fruit tree to produce, you could always just eat your pansies! Throw them in your salad or in a refreshing drink. 

LaRene also suggests planting your leafy green vegetables right now! From carrots, beets, lettuce, it’s time to get planting!

It’s always a great day at Millcreek Gardens! So be sure to stop by Millcreek Gardens to talk to LaRene about your garden this year!
