As we head into April, temperatures are warming up and spring is busting out all over.
What do I mean by Part 2? Well, remember, it got really warm in February and early March, followed by mid-winter cold in mid-March. The February warmth woke everything up and some plants were even blooming in some cases. The March cold stopped that progression and even killed some blooms. We don’t know if there will be any long-term damage, probably not. However, with warmer temperatures returning we are now off and running into spring.
Rainfall has been excessive in some areas. Some soils are waterlogged and this may lend itself to some root disease issues in sensitive plants like taxus and juniper.
