It's Time to Plant Tucson's Potted Gardens

Posted By on Wed, Oct 10, 2012 at 9:15 AM

Mature Winter Planting - Midtown

The forecast for the end of the week will provide us Tucsonans with the perfect opportunity to plant most of our winter flowers. The only thing that might hold us back is a full variety of plants but I imagine by Friday, the nurseries will be full of flowers!

Be sure, once you purchase them, to get your plants in your pots that day. If you are not able to plant until the next day, water them well when you get home and put them in a shady spot or one that gets morning sun only.

If you are not sure how to create a well designed pot (the selection of flowers can be a bit overwhelming!), come to my free class next week Saturday.
