Planning for Spring : Flowers

Happy Wednesday everyone and Welcome to my Life . Today I am blogging about flowers and Spring. In south Louisiana weather is constant changing- this month we have had Cold weather,Rain and Warm weather sometime in a single day. But looking outside today I see the signs of Spring with the first signs of Daffodils blooming and all the flower / garden catalogs I have received this week. It’s time to plan for the coming season:

Louisiana Planting Schedule :

February: Early this month, plant cool-season vegetables, such as beets, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, Swiss chard, collards, lettuce, mustard, potatoes, radishes, spinach, snow peas and turnips. Plant seeds of tomatoes, peppers and eggplants in greenhouses or under lights indoors.

March: Begin planting warm-season vegetables, such as tomatoes and bell peppers (use transplants for these two), cucumbers, corn, snap beans, mirliton and squash. Protect tender vegetables in the event of a late freeze.

Begin to plant warm-season bedding plants, such as angelonia, marigolds, zinnias, blue daze, pentas, celosia, salvia, portulaca, purslane, melampodium and others.
