What a great way to KICK OFF Spring!

  • Kids had so much fun with the Fairies making Fairy Gardens and planting seed and making sand painting crafts

TIMING THE EASTER LILY CROP!

Christmas is always held on December 25 so growing Poinsettias is fairly easy. Depending on which calendar is used, the Gregorian or the Julian, Easter can be as early as the end of March or as late as early May. Most use the Gregorian calendar which determines that Easter will be held on the first Sunday after the first full moon occurring on or after the vernal equinox which this year occurred on March 20. The first full moon will occur on April 19, therefore, Easter falls on April 21.

Timing the crop also takes into consideration the outside temperatures, how many sunny days versus cloudy days. This all affects the temperatures inside the greenhouse. With Easter being so late, we have had to be creative in slowing down the crop. Needless to say, we experience many sleepless nights at this time of year. Cross your fingers that we have Easter lilies still blooming on Easter Sunday.

HAPPY GARDENING!
