Plant for winter and early spring color
This is a busy time of year for gardeners and nurseries. Nurseries have a healthy and abundant supply of cool-season annual transplants, seeds and spring flowering bulbs, and now is the time to renovate the summer garden areas and plant for color during the winter and early spring.
Transplants reward the gardener with the ability to provide early color and a fuller look to the garden. The most common of the early cool-season bedding plantings include ornamental cabbages and kale, snapdragons, pansies and violas.
