My Guide to Gardening in the U.P. book should be done any day now and I am so excited. 86 pages of info specific to the U.P. and your garden.
The perennials are just beginning to awaken, will have the leaves fluffed off when I am certain the really hard frosts are done and get their first fertilization with Rock River Farm's great fish compost soon. Then I see who made the winter and who didn't. I don't baby them so when you get a perennial from me it is a tough, healthy and ready one. I kind of went nuts on Clematis this year: They are SO beautiful.
Anyway it's late; work then garden tomorrow. Someday, I'll retire and devote all my time to plants...oh yes!! Hope to See you soon.
