With the cold misery of March still looming overhead, you should be happy to note that at Van Wilgen’s Garden Center you can change the seasons by simply stepping inside. It might be the color of the petunias, the ornate home and garden decorations, or the simple suggestion that once again you will be in the garden pruning, planting and picking. Although most of us aren’t planning on planting more than peas or petunias, the idea that it will soon be Mother’s Day and you can go to town with the annuals and perennials, is the brightest of all thoughts during the raw days of March. Make your plans now for your baskets and pots outside or decide what will be in your garden. Grab a cup of coffee, warm up and stroll through the delicious smells and colors that spring and Van Wilgens has to offer. Although you may not want to go back outside to your car, at least you can say, “I got to escape.” Be sure to check their website for spring events that last the whole weekend.
