Most growers that I talk to this spring report that they are very busy with spring shipping. They tell me that their customers are ordering more plant material this year than they did in 2009. This morning, The Wall Street Journal reported a similar uptick in business among the big box stores such as Lowe’s and Home Depot. Although the story talks about home improvement items, it does reference flowers, mulch and other garden items. It seems that gardening remains an affordable investment in one’s quality of life.
