Spring


The garden is waking up, and Bellevue Nursery is here to greet it.  Bellevue Nursery has everything you need to spring ahead with your vegetable, herb, and flower starts, so get up and grow!

 PLANT

Breathe new life into your containers and garden beds with early blooming Primroses, Ranunculus, Pansies and Violas along garden paths or in containers. Very cute and colorful with a long bloom period and more cold-tolerant than you would imagine.  Spring-blooming bulbs planted in the fall should be pushing through the soil, but we have starts for you in case you forgot to plant them.  Baby leaves and buds are studding the branches of deciduous trees and shrubs, ready to surprise you with fresh color and, if you’re lucky, fragrance.

This is a great time to start planning your garden ~ indoors!  Since their environment must be artificially maintained, seed starting takes a little more attentiveness but is so rewarding. Remember The Big Three: Soil, Light and  Water.  Please use our Plant Guide on Starting Seeds Indoors.

CELEBRATE

March 20 is the first day of spring!  However you celebrate, the optimism and renewal symbolized by spring brings joyous energy to us all.

Cut flowers are great, but why be left with an empty vase?  Give a lasting gift of color, texture and fragrance.  Your favorite green- thumber will be thrilled with a colorful gardening tote filled with tools, fertilizer, gloves, seed packets and maybe a plant or two.  Better than an Easter Basket!  Speaking of green thumbs, you’re in luck, because Bellevue Nursery carries green and purple shamrock plants.

Celebrate the return of Mason Bees!  These highly efficient pollinators increase fruit production as well as improve the overall health of their ecosystems.  They are fun to watch throughout the spring and are an important member of western ecosystems.   To learn more about these pollinators CLICK HERE.
