"Hello, is it okay…?"

We have received so many phone calls asking if it’s okay to either clear the perennial garden beds or to start planting.  We would like to be able to say ‘you bet’, but, alas, we are talking Wisconsin weather here.  It is very tempting to just dig in (get it? dig in), but do it with care. You can plant the cool season plants and seeds, but keep your eye on the weather and plan accordingly for that surprise dip in temperature and, yes, even snow.  After all, it is still March in Wisconsin!
