Well, I think spring actually starting back in Febrary, but today it is official. What does this mean for our plants? As our days get longer, there are extra hours of sunlight, increased plant photosynthesis therefore plants grow more than they would have a month ago. It also means increased flowering, pollen and seed production plus more mess to clean up on your property. Don’t worry, the flowers will be gone before you know it and then we will be concerned about keeping everything alive in 112 degrees! If you have a chance, this is the best time to visit the Desert Botanical Gardens while our temperatures are still comfortable. Check out their Chihuly exhibit http://www.dbg.org/index.php/chihuly. Stay tuned for more AZ ‘green’ events to be suggested. Enjoy springtime while it’s here… we all know what awaits us in July!
