Knoxville’s last frost date this year was around April 22nd.
Even though no one can predict the weather, there’s a good chance we will not be seeing Jack Frost again until November.
Jack decided to stick around for a while this year and he even brought several of his friends. During their winter mischief they reminded us that several of our new ‘friends’ such as the sweet smelling Gardenia, and the the southern Indian Hawthorn may need to head on back south. Most of the species I have seen so far did not survive.
The winter was long and cold, and spring was slow to set in. But now it’s here, and you know what that means!
Home Grown Tomatoes! Squash! Okra! All sorts of garden goodies either out of your own yard or from a stroll through one of our many farmers markets.
Hydrangeas! Knockout Roses! Many summer loving flowers thrive in our hot humid summers.
If you have always dreamed of gardening and enjoying a hands on and intimate relationship with your garden or landscape, but you just don’t have a green thumb, then please let me help.
PBLGS is here with a passion and a desire to share my passion with you. My passion is to assist my clients in establishing and nurturing a passion for landscaping, gardening, the environment, and a connection with nature, and to enhance the garden experience for homeowners and make the garden a place to enjoy, relax, and share with family and friends.
So come on let’s garden! I’m ready to show Jack he can’t get the best of me…
