Two months into the state’s stay-at-home order, it’s natural to have a feeling of being “locked in.” Our collective change in lifestyle has likely resulted in less activity and more feelings of loneliness.
Mother’s Day is coming up this Sunday, May 12th, and now that spring has (finally) arrived, it’s time to set roots with new plantings almost as beautiful as mom herself. Flowering shrubs, specimen ornamentals, a plethora of perennials and flowers, organic soils and amendments – the time is now.
And this year, when you visit our Center at 2001 Des Plaines Ave. (just a half-mile south of the Forest Park Plaza), you will find a new, refreshed look to our layout.
We are three weeks into spring, even if Mother Nature hasn't fully acknowledged the changing of the seasons. True green thumbs undoubtedly have already begun taking steps to prep for the blooming to come and for even the most skeptical weather-watchers, it's likely only a matter of days before thoughts fully shift to how to make the most of your garden experience this year.
