Gardeners Gear Up For Growing Season

 

A long, snowy winter followed by a cold, wet spring has gardeners in Door and Kewaunee Counties itching to put their green thumbs to work.

Bonnie Miller, who runs Bonnie Brooke Gardens in Sturgeon Bay with her husband Ben, says some plants will have to wait until it warms up a bit more, but others can be planted now.

"Ideally the nighttime temperatures should be 50 degrees consistently before you can consider it safe for everything to go out," says Bonnie. "Everybody's anxious to plant their tomatoes but you need to wait until later in May when it's over 50 degrees at night."

Ben says it can be a challenge to know what flower, shrub or tree is best for your particular situation but he says they or their staff can point you in the right direction. 

Bonnie says some popular new plants they're selling this year from the Proven Winners brand are a yellow- and white-striped Million Bells flower called 'Lemon Slice' and a Dwarf Morning Glory called 'Blue My Mind.'

You can find Bonnie Brooke Gardens at 337 N. 14th Avenue in Sturgeon Bay. They're open Monday through Saturday from 8 am to 6 pm and Sundays from 10 am to 4 pm.
