Spring Planting

Real Estate Agent with Long & Foster, Realtors

Here in Richmond, VA we are constantly teased by warm weather early in the year. Spring fever runs high as early as February.  The jonquils have already bloomed and the tulips are not far behind.  The yards are loaded with robins and there is color everywhere.

This makes us want to go outside and replace plants that didn't make it through the winter either due to frost or disease.  But you might want to wait another week or two. 

Another thing Richmond, VA is famous for is changing weather.  As the saying goes " if you don't like the weather in Richmond, wait a day and it will change".  We usually rely on our local plant stand run by Jim and Robin Smith.  When they start setting up their shop on Patterson Avenue then we start making plans as well.

So when we see the plastic coming off of their building after winterization, we will let you know.  We just hope our azaleas don't bloom before they open the stand....one of ours is dead.
